Biographical Note

Ekaterina Murav'eva was the wife of Nikolai Murav'ev, member of a group of progressive lawyers (including Vasilii Maklakov), active in the defense of radical political causes in pre-revolutionary Russia. After the February revolution he was appointed chairman of the committee investigating officials of the Imperial government. Between 1917 and 1922, both he and his wife were active in the Politicheskii Krasnyi Krest (Political Red Cross). In 1923, Ekaterina Murav'eva emigrated to Paris where she lived until her death in 1948. Nikolai Murav'ev remained in the Soviet Union.
