Forecasts Early Bolshevik Collapse

Ex-Professor of Sociology In Petrograd Predicts Democracy for Russia

New York Evening Post

November 16. 1923

This article seems to be unknown to Sorokin scholars — it is not listed in any bibliography or biographical work on Sorokin, as far as I know.

When the Post article appeared, Sorokin had been in the US for only about six weeks and was visiting, as a guest, Vassar College, where he attended classes, would soon give lectures on the Russian revolution to Vassar students, and worked on improving his English.
