Background
Miron Dolot is a pseudonym of Simon Starow, a Ukrainian-American writer and professor of Slavic languages. Starow was born in Ukraine to Ukrainian parents. His father was killed in 1919 for his loyalty to the Ukrainian Independent Republic while Starow was an infant. Starow served in the Soviet 44th Army Infantry Division during the Soviet-Finnish War on the Ukhta Front. He fled the Soviet Union to West Germany as a political refugee and lived in Frankfurt am Main, where he was a member of the Ukrainian émigré press of which he took an active part until 1949, when he emigrated to the United States. From 1952 to 1955 Starow lived in Los Angeles and worked as a language instructor for the Voluntary Training Unit of the Marine Corps Reserve. He became a naturalized U.S. citizen in 1954. In 1955 he moved to Monterey, California to work as Ukrainian language instructor at the Army Language School.
