6:30 pm. The Gunnery's 2016-17 Gunn Scholar, Dana Ross, a student from Moscow, Russia will present her research which stretched from Moscow University and the KGB archives to Mr. Krimsky's personal archives on Monday, May 22 at 6:30 pm in the Wykeham Room of the Gunn Memorial Library. Tracing the Cold War through the reminiscences of Gunnery alumni and faculty, a Russian general, a prominent Soviet dissident's daughter, the Gunnery archives, and interviews with Mr. Krimsky, Ms. Ross has used Mr. Krimsky's story as the subject around which to build her thesis. Before his death in January 2017, Mr. Krimsky generously shared the considerable archive of materials from his Associated Press posting in Moscow from 1974 -1977 when he became the first western journalist expelled from the Soviet Union after the initiation of detente by US President Nixon's visit to the USSR in 1973. Everyone is invited to attend this free program.
