SERGEI ALEKSANDROVICH EVREINOW (1895-1960)
Evreinow married Frances Rhoades Tatnall in 1931 in Wilmington, Delaware. By 1933 the couple was living in New Haven, Connecticut, where Frances Evreinow worked in the Yale University Library. Sergeĭ Evreinow died in New Haven in 1960.
Sergeĭ Evreinow was a distant relative of dramatist Nikolaĭ Nikolaevich Evreinov.
N. N. EVREINOV (1879-1953)
After some equivocation, in 1925 Evreinov decided to remain permanently outside Russia. His European renown allowed him to continue his tireless theatrical and publishing activities from Paris. During the 1930s, he worked on several motion pictures in France. In 1935, Evreinov was honored with an invitation to direct at the Paris National Theater. As his letters to S. A. Evreinow show, Evreinov and his wife, Anna Aleksandrovna Kashina-Evreinova, weathered the German occupation and post-war depression quite badly. Still, he continued to write and publish quite prolifically until his death on September 7, 1953.
