R. F. 51 The inclusion of two mathematicians among thefirst'professor types' to arrive at Bletchley Park was of crucial importance. During thefirstyear of the war it was Turing and Welchman, building on the earlier work of the 36 CHRISTOPHER ANDREW Poles and the French, who made the crucial breakthroughs in the solving of Enigma. Turing and Welchman were recruited, however, not because of their distinction as mathematicians but because of their skill at chess. 53 The 'emergency list' prepared by GC & CS before the war included clever undergraduates (again mostly from arts faculties) as well as more senior 'professor types'.
By no means all the secret Oxbridge Communists became Soviet moles. One of those who refused to be drawn into the Comintern intelligence network was Jenifer Hart, now Fellow of St Anne's College, Oxford. She became a secret Communist on graduating from Oxford in 1935, 'quite excited by the idea of doing something secret,' but without any thought of 'working for Russia'. Her story, however, provides further evidence of the way in which Russian Intelligence sought (unsuccessfully in her case) to turn secret Communists in positions of influence into Soviet moles.
49 It was not until late 1938 that GC & CS, prompted perhaps by the problems posed by the German Enigma cipher machine, set out to recruit itsfirstmathematician. The new recruit, Peter Twinn, who had graduated from Oxford a few months earlier, was told after his recruitment: that there had been some doubts about the wisdom of recruiting a mathematician as they were regarded as strange fellows notoriously unpractical. It had been discussed whether, if some scientific training were regretfully to be accepted as an unavoidable necessity, it might not be better to look for a physicist on the grounds that they might be expected to have at least some appreciation of the real world.
