The article gives perspective on Sorokin’s pedagogical views. The book he mentions being currently at work on was apparently Fads and Foibles in Modern Sociology and Related Sciences.

“Forecasts Early Bolshevik Collapse”

 

‘Forecasts Early Bolshevik Collapse’ – New York Evening Post 11-16-1923

 

Posted here (downloadable Word document above) is the following:

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.

Sorokin on the “Martha Washington” — Trieste to Boston, 1923

 

The Russian exile Pitirim Alexandrovich Sorokin arrived in the United States on November 1, 1923 on the S. S. Martha Washington, which sailed from Trieste to Boston. After spending a few hours in Boston, where the ship first stopped, Sorokin proceeded by ship to New York City.

Note the date of arrival: November 1923 — not October, as Sorokin himself states, inaccurately, in his autobiography

Posted here as a Word document is the following editorial concerning Sorokin:

Overtaking the Lies (editorial)

The editorial is self-explanatory.

Sorokin was on a lecture tour. He had been in the US since November 1923
