Alexander Kerensky

a.k.a. Alexander Fyodorovich Kerensky

Author Code: RAFK

Born: May 4, 1881 - Simbirsk, Russia

Died: Jun. 11, 1970 - New York City, New York, USA

Educated at St. Petersburg University, Kerensky earned his degree in law in 1904. In 1905, he became a member of the Socialist Revolutionary Party (SR) and because of his radical views expressed while he was the editor of the left-wing newspaper Burevestik, he was arrested and exiled. He returned to St. Petersburg in 1906 and began practicing law. Over the next few years he cemented his reputation in left-wing circles by defending a number of anti-Tsarist radicals and revolutionaries. In 1912, he joined the Russian Labor Party and was elected to the State Duma. At the beginning of 1917, he rejoined the SR and demanded the removal of the Tsar. When the Tsar abdicated, Kerensky became the Minister of Justice in the Provisional Government headed by Prince Lvov. In May 1917, he became the Minister of War, but the war continued badly for Russia. In July of 1917, Lvov resigned and Kerensky took his place as head of the government. Internal struggles continued with General Kornilov, who had been appointed Commander-in-Chief, starting a rebellion that was eventually put down with the assistance of the Bolsheviks and Red Guards. Kerensky's continued support of the war inevitably led to his downfall and after his army was defeated by the Bolsheviks at Pulkova, he was forced to flee in 1918 to London. He then settled in France and remained there, carrying on a propaganda campaign against the Soviets, until the outbreak of war in 1940 when he moved to the U.S. He taught at the Hoover Institution at Stanford University and lectured on Russian history and politics. On Kerensky's death, the Russian Orthodox churches in New York refused to grant his burial, due mainly to his part in the overthrow of the Tsar - the head of the Church in Russia - and his body was sent to England for burial at Putney-Vale Cemetery. Kerensky's written works are mostly of an autobiographical nature and include The Prelude to Bolshevism (1919), The Catastrophe (1927), The Crucifixion of Liberty (1934) and Russia and History's Turning Point (1965).
