A. R. von Arnold, who often went by the nickname Dora, was born in Siedlce (now in Poland) on 26 February 1896 (O. S.). Her
father, Roman Apollonovich, then a retired military officer working in the office of the governor-general, volunteered for
service during the Russo-Japanese War, following which he remained in Harbin, where he eventually rose to the rank of chief
of police. Her mother, born Ekaterina Khristoforovna von Maidel', a dentist by profession, became the founder and director
of the Harbin dental school. Antonina had a sister, Liubov', a promising poet who died of appendicitis in Petrograd early
in 1917, and a brother, Boris, who became a psychologist in the United States.
