    Close, but not close enough... He is a communist, his father is from Central Europe, won't say the exact country to not make it too easy, and his mother is from Russia.

    Alright, stupid mistake. Richard Sorge is the man you are looking for!
    His father was a German mine worker and his mother a Russian indeed.

    He is known as a Soviet Spy

    Correct, mining engineer to be precise. Sorge was a quite an important intelligence character of WWII until his execution by the Japanese.

    The vibe I'm getting from the uniform and the haircut is American military academy cadet of the 2nd half of 19th century.

    The face, mate. I knew this was late 19th Century west point or something like that. That brought me to Pershing (checked, nope too old) or topped ranked WW2 generals. And I went down the line. I know I'd seen that snout somewheres.

    You can keep your rep.
