Biographical/Historical Note

Vladimir Nikolaevich Bashkirov, a Russian-American businessman was born in Samara, Russia. He started his career as a grain broker and developed into a successful Industrialist. He was appointed Deputy Minister of the Provisional Government of the Russian Republic formed immediately following the abdication of Tsar Nicholas II (March 15, 1917). There he focused on the Imperial Russian government's efforts to procure much-needed military supplies in the American market before and after America's entry into World War I. After the collapse of Russia's Imperial and Provisional governments in 1917, Bashkirov went into exile in the United States and lived in New York. Bashkirov worked in the Division of Supplies of the Russian Embassy, where he coordinated and supervised purchases. Bashkirov was also a philanthropist, donating to the Tolstoy Foundation, the Literary Fund, and other Russian organizations.
