The Ivy and Tatiana Litvinov papers contain autobiographical, fictional, and other writings; interview transcripts; diaries; correspondence; and sound recordings relating to the life of Ivy Litvinov in Great Britain and the Soviet Union, her marriage to the Soviet foreign minister Maksim Litvinov, and British and Russian literature. The papers also include correspondence, speeches and writings, and art works by Ivy Litvinov's daughter, Tatiana Litvinov, who was an artist and translator.
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.
