Biographical Note

IU. V. Kruzenshtern was born in Russia on June 19, 1903. Her father, a military officer, was transferred to Harbin when she was three years old, and in her memoirs she describes her life in this city. After her father volunteered for service at the front in 1915 (where he was killed), she and her mother moved to Vladikavkaz.
Following the Revolution, Kruzenshtern returned to Harbin, where she worked as a correspondent for various Russian periodicals. In 1930, she moved to Shanghai, continuing to work as a journalist for Shankhaiskaia zaria and The North China Daily News. There she married the poet Nikolai Peterets, who died young of tuberculosis.
Evacuating to Brazil following the Communist takeover in China, in 1960 she arrived in the United States, where she found employment as a commentator for the Voice of America. Following her retirement, she continued to work as a journalist for Russian newspapers, and even edited the San Francisco daily Russkaia zhizn'. A book of short stories, Ulybka psishi, was published in 1969. Kruzenshtern-Peterets died on June 8, 1983.

Scope and Content Note

Iustina V. Kruzenshtern-Peterets (1903-1983) was a poet, writer, and journalist in China and the United States. She wrote for a number of émigré publications, among them Gun-Bao in Harbin and Vecherniaia zaria in Shanghai, and Novoe russkoe slovo and Russkaia zhizn' in the United States, and also worked as a commentator for Radio Liberty (the collection contains transcripts she worked on; see SPEECHES AND WRITINGS/General/Transcripts). Of particular interest is her correspondence with well-known émigré writers and poets, and her untitled memoirs of life in Harbin and Shanghai (SPEECHES AND WRITINGS/Untitled memoirs and "V krasnom Shankhae," Russkaia zhizn', 1961). The collection later passed through the hands of Mariia Tourkoff (Vizi), and includes explanatory notes in her hand, as well as photographs and certain additional material in the subject file.
Detailed processing and preservation microfilming for these materials were made possible by a generous grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities and by matching funds from the Hoover Institution and Museum of Russian Culture. The grant also provides depositing a microfilm copy in the Hoover Institution Library & Archives. The original materials remain in the Museum of Russian Culture, San Francisco as its property. A transfer table indicating corresponding box and reel numbers is available at the Hoover Institution Library & Archives.
