Biographical/Historical Note

Constantin Boldyreff (1910-1995) was born in Gatchina, not far from St. Petersburg. After the Russian revolution in 1917, he emigrated with his mother to China and then Yugoslavia, where he studied at the Russian Cadet School in Sarajevo. In 1935, he graduated from the University of Belgrade with a degree in engineering and worked for British and American mining companies in Yugoslavia.
As a university student, Boldyreff joined the newly formed émigré anticommunist party, the Narodno-Trudovoi Soiuz (NTS) or National Alliance of Russian Solidarists. Its activities were directed against the communist regime in the Soviet Union.
At the beginning of World War II, Boldyreff joined the Yugoslav army. During the German occupation, which followed the Yugoslav army's capitulation, he was arrested twice by the Gestapo and taken as a slave laborer to Germany. He was able to escape from the labor camp. In 1944, he and other members of the NTS began underground anticommunist activity in the German-occupied territories of the Soviet Union.
After the leadership of the NTS was almost annihilated by the Gestapo, Boldyreff escaped to Austria and organized a work brigade composed of Russian refugees, including prisoners of war that had been brought to Germany as slave laborers.
The end of the war found the Boldyreff family and their fellow refugees escaping west from the approaching Soviet armies. The greatest threat these displaced persons faced was forcible repatriation, a fate suffered by more than two million Russian refugees, who were returned to the Soviet Union by the Allies. Boldyreff was able to save not only his group but also thousands of others threatened with repatriation and subsequent death or imprisonment in Soviet concentration camps. They found refuge in the American-occupied zone in the Mönchehof displaced persons (or DP) camp. Boldyreff was instrumental in making the camp economically self-sufficient, providing housing and schools and organizing religious and cultural activities. Fear of repatriation forced displaced people to emigrate as soon as possible from Europe. In 1947, after carefully researching the economic opportunities for educated professionals, Boldyreff arranged for the Mönchehof group of DPs to emigrate to Morocco.
In 1947, the Boldyreff family emigrated to the United States, and Constatin Boldyreff was appointed as a professor at Georgetown University, where he established the Institute of Languages and Linguistics in the School of Foreign Service. Boldyreff continued his anticommunist activities on behalf of NTS, testifying before the Senate and House about conditions in the Soviet Union and advising the government on foreign policy. He made use of the American media to publicize his anticommunist campaign, publishing articles on political subjects in the American periodical press, addressing interested groups, and appearing on television.
He died in 1995.
