Peter Kudrik was born Petr Aleksandrovich Kudrin in 1914. His family lived in Vilnius (now Lithuania, then Poland) between the two world wars, changing their last name to Kudrik. After World War II, Kudrik lived in a displaced persons camp in Germany before moving to the United States in 1950. He studied at the University of North Carolina, where he received his degree in library science, following which he worked as a Slavic librarian and curator at the University of Michigan and at Stanford University. Kudrik was Slavic curator at Stanford University Libraries in the 1970s. After retiring, he worked for a time as manager of the local Russian newspaper Russkaia zhizn' (San Francisco). Kudrik died in San Francisco in 1991.
