Background
Ivy Litvinov (1889-1977) was a British-Russian writer and translator, and the wife of prominent Soviet diplomat Maxim Litvinov, who served as People's Commissar for Foreign Affairs and as ambassador to the United States. The couple survived political turmoil and Stalin's purges. Ivy accompanied her husband on some of his diplomatic postings but lived mainly in the USSR for most of her adult life.
