“Kerensky Sees Fall of Soviet Dictatorship: Colleagues of Revolution Meet in Boston
The Christian Science Monitor
March 9, 1938
On the evening of March 9, the day the article appeared, Kerensky spoke at the Ford Hall Forum in Boston. His lecture was entitled “On Behalf of Democracy.”
In the conclusion of the article, it is stated: “The last meeting between Mr. Kerensky and his secretary [Sorokin] occurred nearly 18 years ago in Berlin. This was four years after Mr. Kerensky’s escape and already the Soviet Regime was sending its roots into Russian soil. Yet like his former superior, Sorokin believes the Soviet Union some day will collapse.”
This photo of Sorokin in the yard of his Winchester, Massachusetts home appeared in the Boston Sunday Globe of May 23, 1954 under the headline “Winchester Hillside Aglow With Azaleas, Grown by Harvard Professor.”
Photos of Sorokin during his early academic career are rare.
Here is an item from the Minnesota Alumni Weekly of May 4, 1929 (“Faculty Books,” pg. 540) noting the publication of Sorokin’s Social Mobility. Sorokin was on the faculty of the University of Minnesota at that time.
The photo caption reads: “…. he told us, very proudly, that he is in the process of becoming an American citizen, and he would soon be able to file for his second papers.”
This grainy photograph of Pitirim A. Sorokin was published in The Daily Collegian (Wayne State University) on February 12, 1959.
The day before, Sorokin had delivered a lecture to “an overcrowded lecture hall” on the Wayne State University campus on a topic he had addressed numerous times: mutual convergence of the Russian and American systems and values.
