American spies in Context for Glennon's intelligence gathering trip to Russia in 1956

In 1956 my father, John J. Glennon (Librarian for the what is notnow the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics), was one of the few fluent Russian speakers in the US at the time, as I understoodwas given to understand. He was recruited by the FBIFBI's New York Office by John Connolly to work with the CIA. In November of 1956 my father traveled to Russia after a thorough background check of friends, family, etc. I understood that his assignment was to find out what was the status of aircraft (not sure what else). \He spent three weeks there.

Question: does anyone know what what exactlymore about the context for that trip, and about his role might have beenproject? He never spoke of histhis assignment and was not about to - to anyone. Does anyone have any records ofinformation about John J. GlennonGlennon's visit to the USSR, or the name he used in Moscow?

He was driven around of course and attended a high level gathering on November 7, 1956. He did take 33mm videos as, which we still have them.
