Sorokin on the “Martha Washington”


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
