    Biography

    A. M. Naidenov was born in Moscow on 30 June 1896. After graduation from the Moscow Commercial Institute in 1917, he worked in the Soviet Union as an economist in various organizations, including "Azneft'" and the People's
    Commissariat of Light Industry of the Azerbaidzhan S.S.R., where he was a planner for ten years. This experience led him to author a study entitled Administration of Azerbaijani Industry, published by the Research Studies Institute of the Air University in 1952.
    Escaping the USSR during the Second World War (1944), he moved to the United States in 1949, working as a draftsman in New York in addition to engaging in anti-Communist activities as a journalist and an announcer for the Voice of America. Most of his writings and correspondence are concerned with problems of anti-communism. Naidenov died in San Francisco in September 1972.
