Subject: [SEELANGS] Marina Ledkovsky (1924-2014)

Cathy Nepomnyashchy, as chair of the Barnard Slavic department, and I, as
chair of the Columbia Slavic department, write to report the sad news of
the death this week of Marina Ledkovsky, who retired as Professor of Slavic
Languages from our joint department in 1996. After doing graduate work at
the University of Perugia and Friedrich-Wilhelms-Universitat in Berlin, she
finished her Ph.D. in the Slavic Department at Columbia. Author of The
Other Turgenev (1973), Professor Ledkovsky was known above all as a
Turgenev scholar. She was also a pioneer in the study of Russian women
writers. She compiled the anthology Russia According to Women and
co-edited the monumental Dictionary of Russian Women Writers (1994).

Professor Ledkovsky was greatly admired and deeply loved by her friends,
colleagues, and students.

A panikhida service will be held today, Friday, November 28, at 7:30 pm.
The otpevanie will be held tomorrow, Saturday, November 29, at 11:00 am.
Both services will be at the Cathedral of Our Lady of the Sign, 75 East
93nd Street, corner of Park Avenue.

Yours truly,
Alan Timberlake (and Cathy Nepomnyashchy)
