Henry Julian Wadleigh, was an economist and employee of Dean Acheson in the United States Department of State in the 1940's. He was an economist in the Trade Agreements Division, for eleven years and was sent to Turkey and Italy and other countries as United States representative. Wadleigh secured a transfer originally from the Department of Agriculture to the State Department at the request of the Soviet intelligence.

After the statute of limitations had run out, Wadleigh openly admitted CPUSA membership and that he had stolen a vast number of classified documents while working in the State Department on behalf of Soviet intelligence.

At the trial of Alger Hiss, Hiss attorneys' attempted to pin the blame on Wadleigh for supplying Hiss's hand and typewritten notes to a courier for transmission to the Soviet Union.
