Event Details

Edward Kasinec takes a closer look at the early career of the single most important figure in 20th century Russian-American cultural and economic contacts, Armand Hammer, M.D. This richly illustrated talk focuses on Hammer's collecting of paintings, decorative arts, books and manuscripts during his stay in Soviet Russia in the 1920s, and his "creative" marketing and sale of these objects in post-depression America.

Edward Kasinec is a Research Scholar and Staff Associate at Columbia University's Harriman Institute. He was previously a Reference Librarian and Archivist for the Harvard University Library and the Ukrainian Research Institute Library; Librarian for Slavic Collections, University of California, Berkeley, Library; and Emeritus Curator, Slavic and Baltic Division, The New York Public Library.


This activity is made possible by the voters of Minnesota through a Minnesota State Arts Board Operating Support grant, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts and cultural heritage fund, and a grant from the Wells Fargo Foundation Minnesota.
