Russian Thought and Politics

Excerpt

As Professor Michael Karpovich retires in 1957 after completing thirty years of teaching at Harvard, he does so with the grateful acknowledgment of his services to American scholarship in the study of Russian history. His contributions to this field, as author and editor, or as sponsor of numerous intellectual ventures, have greatly enriched it. For thousands of undergraduates his lectures have opened new horizons of historical understanding. His devotion to the training of beginning scholars is also reflected, partially and imperfectly, in this collection of essays, prepared by many of his former students, including nearly all who have completed their doctorates under his supervision and are presently engaged in teaching.

Another important field of Professor Karpovich's service is less well known, although of no less significance. For many years he has labored tirelessly to strengthen the contributions of Russian culture to the life of the free world. Among the hundreds of thousands of émigrés from his native Russia, there is no one more respected, more listened to, and more fruitfully active, than Michael Karpovich. Russian culture and its role in exile are deeply indebted to his wisdom and devotion.
