The Yevtushenko Papers include personal and professional papers of Russian poet Yevgeny Yevtushenko. Although not complete,
the collection provides substantial material on Yevtushenko's personal and literary career, which cannot be separated from
the political context of the time.
Yevgeny Aleksandrovich Yevtushenko was born on June 18, 1933 in Zima Junction, Siberia. His father, Aleksandr Gangnus, was
a geologist who wrote poetry and taught Yevtushenko to love books. His mother, Zinaida Ermolayevna Yevtushenko, was a geologist
and a singer. Both of Yevtushenko's grandfathers were victims of Stalin's purges in the late thirties.
