Biographical Note

Among the members whose papers are well represented are: Niko Iakovlevich Nikoladze (1843-1928), a leading Georgian and Russian political activist, thinker, journalist, entrepreneur, and friend and follower of N.G. Chernyshevskii; Irakli Tsereteli (1881-1959), Nikoladze's nephew, a prominent Social Democratic deputy to the Second Imperial Duma, and a leading figure in the Petrograd Soviet and the Russian Provisional Government from March through September of 1917; Rusudana Nikolaevna Nikoladze (1884-1981), Nikoladze's elder daughter, a chemist and political activist whose diaries and correspondence are especially extensive; Nikoladze's two younger children, Tamara and George, and his grandchild, the physicist Nikolai (Nika) Polievktov-Nikoladze.

Also present are the papers of Rusudana's husband, Mikhail Aleksandrovich Polievktov (1872-1942), a well-known St. Petersburg historian, who was a student of S.F. Platonov and a life-long friend and colleague of the historian A.E. Presniakov. Notable among Polievktov's papers are the transcripts of interviews with key participants in the February Revolution, conducted from Spring through Fall of 1917 by a commission he and Presniakov organized.

RUSUDANA NIKOLAEVNA NIKOLADZE (1884-1981) was the eldest of Niko Nikoladze's three children. She was born in St. Petersburg but grew up in Georgia, moving between Poti, Tiflis (Tbilisi), and the family estate in the small western village of Didi-Dzhikhaishi. Rusudana graduated with specializations in mathematics and education from the Tiflis Gymnasium for Women in 1904 and then matriculated at the Women's Pedagogical Institute (WPI) in St. Petersburg. In 1909 Rusudana received her degree in physics and inorganic chemistry. She began working as a junior researcher at the WPI and teaching chemistry and physics at a St. Petersburg gymnasium. She also attended St. Petersburg University from which she graduated in 1913 with a degree in organic chemistry. In addition to her native Georgian and equally impeccable Russian, Rusudana spoke English, French, and German. She travelled extensively to Europe with her parents, visiting France, Switzerland, German, and Scandinavia. From 1915 to 1916 she also took higher pedagogical courses in preschool education, specializing in the new Montessori System. Her interest in education and its methods would continue throughout her life.

In the summer of 1913, Rusudana married the St. Petersburg historian Mikhail Aleksandrovich Polievktov (1872-1942).Their only child, Nikolai (Nika) Mikhailovich Nikoladze-Polievktov was born in 1915. Considering the political orientation of the family, it is hardly surprising that they greeted the news of the February Revolution with enthusiasm. Within days, Rusudana and her younger sister, Tamara (1892-1939), offered their services to the newly-formed Petrograd Soviet, and in the following weeks they worked eight-hour shifts every day inside the Tauride Palace as telephone operators on the lines designated for the Soviet's leaders. Even more important, the sisters took part in the work of the Society for the Study of the Russian Revolution, more specifically, Mikhail Polievktov's Interview Commission, recording the words of such witnesses to history as Aleksandr Kerenskii.

In July 1917 Rusudana and her son returned to Didi-Dzhikhaishi, where she was among the founders of the local gymnasium and where she taught until 1920. She then moved to Tbilisi and until her retirement in the early 1970s worked at several institutions of higher education, beginning as a researcher and reaching, in 1933, the rank of Professor and Chair of the chemistry departments at Tbilisi State Pedagogical and Polytechnic Institutes. Rusudana was a prolific and talented writer, publishing scholarly works on organic and inorganic chemistry, chemistry methods, and Georgian chemistry terminology. In addition to her scholarly publications, among her papers are long memoirs on her prerevolutionary life, on her father and mentors, including Sergei Vasilevich Lebedev (1874-1934) and Lev Vladimirovich Pisarzhevskii (1874-1938).

Though she was never a member of the Communist Party, Rusudana received numerous awards from the Soviet state, including the title of Honorary Scientist (1941), two Orders of Lenin (1947, 1953), the Order of the Red Banner (1965), and two Certificates of Merit from the Supreme Soviet of the Georgian Soviet Socialist Republic (1960, 1965).

VISSARION ALEKSEEVICH CHICHINADZE (1887-1937) was a prominent Georgian engineer and public figure. His uncle was Niko Nikoladze. His father, Aleksei Vissarionovich Chichinadze (1851-1917), was a prominent Georgian educator. His mother, Efrosinia Iakovlevna Nikoladze (sister of Niko Nikoladze), was educated at St. Petersburg's Bestuzhevskie courses. Vissarion Chichinadze grew up with his sister Tatiana (Tata) in Kutaisi and Erevan. In 1913, he graduated from the St. Petersburg Technological Institute with a degree in hydraulic engineering. After returning to Tbilisi, he specialized in designing and building railroads in his native Georgia. He married Zinaida Aleksandrovna Dekonskaia, the daughter of a well-known Tbilisi lawyer.

In 1922, Vissarion Chichinadze began working on the V. I. Lenin Zemo-Avchalskaia hydroelectric power station, the first such plant in Georgia and only the second in the Soviet Union. During the 1920s, he also worked as chief engineer on building several hydroelectric power plants throughout Georgia. In the 1930s, he spearheaded the development of electric power lines and the electrochemical industry in Georgia. Chichinadze was the author of many scholarly works on hydroelectric power and founder of the first Georgian technical journal. He was arrested and executed during the Great Terror in 1937. His wife Zinaida was sent to exile in Central Asia. Their two sons subsequently lived in Moscow. Aleksei (Aliko) (1917-1994) became a ballet dancer and choreographer, and Avtandil (Atiko) (1921-2010) was an engineer.

        This is an incomplete volume entitled "Summer 1914 Notebook I" (Leto 1914 g. Tetrad I) describing Rusudana's journey back to Russia from Switzerland with her husband M. A. Polievktov in the summer of 1914 due to the outbreak of the Great War. It appears that some pages (RNN page nos. 49-63) from this journal describing the first days of the war and the bombing of Paris were later inserted into the travel memoir entitled "My France" (see folder 18). Rusudana bought six notebooks in Librarie Garin, Geneva. She completed four between August and October, 1914. Her intention was to describe the events and encounters with other Russians, who joined the Polievktov-Nikoladze couple in their return journey to the homeland. Rusudana's journey back to Didi Dzhikhaishi, was made on a steamboat to Odessa from Marseille via Istanbul. From Odessa she traveled to Poti through Iuzovka in the Ukraine. Her husband, M. A. Polievktov, parted with Rusudana in Odessa and returned to St. Petersburg via Kiev.

        The first part of the notebook entitled "Notebook IV. Summer 1914"(Leto 1914 g. Tetrad IV) continues where the previous journal leaves off. The text is written in Russian. Occasional dated entries range from October 17, 1914 when Rusudana was in Didi Dzhikhaishi (Georgia) to February 9, 1915 when she was in Petrograd. Annotations and additions to the text appear to have been made by RNN around 1967. The second part entitled "After Two Years" (Cherez dva goda) describes events that took place between February and April of 1917. Again annotations and additions to the text appear to have been made by RNN around 1967. At the end of June, 1917 RNN left Petrograd for Georgia. The first part of the notebook refers to such historical events as the outbreak of war with Turkey and the evacuation of government officials and civilians from Poti to Tbilisi. The second part describes wartime Petrograd, popular uprisings in the city, the formation of the Petrograd Soviet, the abdication of Tsar Nicholas II, Rusudana's work in the Tauride Palace, and the return of her cousin Iraklii Tsereteli from Siberian exile. Folder includes several pages showing musical notations from a Wagner score and RNN's thoughts on the revolution.

        The notebook is entitled "'n. 3' 1916-1917: from one year to two" (n. 3 1916-1917: Ot goda do dvukh). It continues the series of journals RNN began in November 1915 dedicated to the birth and development of her son, Nikolai (Nika) Polievktov-Nikoladze. It is the only one available in the original series of such notebooks. The series was continued by Rusudana until 1925, according to the note inserted by her in the front of the notebook entitled "Notebook IV, Summer 1914." The text is written in Russian with occasional sentences in Georgian. Dated entries range from November 7, 1916 to October 8, 1917. The entries range from 100 to 250 words. Rusudana and her son spent most of the time described in the diary in Petrograd with occasional visits to Didi Dzhikhaishi in Georgia and Zheleznovodsk in the Caucasus.

      • Rusudana Nikolaevna Nikoladze illustrated journal, 1931 September. Folder 7 (MSE/REE 0001 PN200-7)
        1 vol., 20 cm., 71 leaves with 136 pages of manuscript containing undated entries in Rusudana's hand in ink; additional manuscript material includes four telegrams inserted in the front, as well as clippings and postcards tipped in. RNN numbers the leaves from 1 to 137.

She was accompanied by Georgette Nikoladze, the widow of Georgii Nikoladze. It appears that the journal was started in Moscow and completed on the train back to Tbilisi on September 17, 1931. The manuscript describes memories of Georgii Nikoladze who had recently passed away, Moscow and changes in its architecture, along with detailed descriptions of Moscow's Kremlin Hospital where Rusudana spent two weeks. The text is written in Russian with occasional passages in Georgian.

      • Rusudana Nikolaevna Nikoladze illustrated journal, 1934. Folder 8 (MSE/REE 0001 PN200-8)
        1 vol., 20 cm., 79 leaves with 127 pages of manuscript with dated entries in Rusudana's hand in ink; additional manuscript material includes clippings, postcards, and photographs of Georgii Nikolaevich Nikoladze tipped in.

        The notebook entitled "One more notebook. 'Last Chapter?' Spring 1934" (Eshche Odna Tetrad "Posledniaia Glava?" Vesna 1934 g.) is a journal with dated entries. The notebook starts with an entry for April 11, 1934 and ends with an entry for May 11 of the same year, with additional brief entries for June and July. Rusudana focuses on her memories of her brother Georgii Nikolaevich Nikoladze (d. 1931), along with chemistry professors Sergei Vasilevich Lebedev (d. 1934) and Boris Vasilevich Byzov (d. 1934).

      • Rusudana Nikolaevna Nikoladze illustrated memoir, ca. 1960s. Folder 9 (MSE/REE 0001 PN200-9-Boxed)
        1 vol., leaves enclosed in loose binding, 23 cm., 165 leaves with 362 pages of manuscript in Rusudana's hand in ink; additional manuscript material, clippings and photographs tipped in. RNN page nos. 145-158; 162-192; 195-510.

        It appears that this untitled volume was begun by RNN as an illustrated journal describing her interest in theater and literature. Specifically, the memoir focuses on the visit of theater actors, brothers Robert Lvovich Adelgeim (1860-1934) and Rafail Lvovich Adelgeim (1861-1938) to Tiflis and Kutaisi in 1902. The brothers Adelgeim were European-acclaimed Russian-Jewish dramatic actors who developed their own acting school. They graduated from a Viennese conservatory and staged performances in Austria, Germany, Switzerland, and throughout Russia. The Adelgeim repertoire included Othello, King Lear, The Merchant of Venice, and other classical Shakespearian plays. Rusudana describes the stage performances of the Adelgeim brothers, as well as her emotional and intellectual reactions to the actors. Some passages were inserted from earlier journals as evidenced by the occasional double pagination.

        This collection of loose pages describes Rusudana's meetings with and her thoughts about the French poet Paul Geraldy (1885-1983) in Switzerland and Paris circa 1900-1905, as well as in 1933. It appears that the text was written by RNN in the 1960s.

      • Rusudana Nikolaevna Nikoladze illustrated memoir, 1916, ca. 1923 and 1967. Folder 11 (MSE/REE 0001 PN200-11)
        1 vol., 22 cm, 212 leaves with 415 pages of manuscript with undated entries in Rusudana's hand in ink; additional manuscript material, clippings, photographs, and letters tipped in. RNN page nos. 281-690.

        This notebook is entitled "'My Spring' Notebook N.2 the End of Perestiuk and the Beginning of Azbelev" (Moia Vesna Tetrad N. 2 Konets Perestiuka i Nachalo Azbeleva). It belongs to the series of notebooks describing Rusudana's sudent years in the gymnasium in the Caucasus and in the Women's Institute in St. Petersburg between 1901-1907. The other two notebooks available in the collection are "Notebook N. 5.: 1906-1912 'Two Nicholases'" and "Notebook N. 6. 'Days of our Life' . . . Continuation 1907-08" (see folders 12 and 13). It appears that "My Spring" was begun by RNN as an illustrated memoir in Didi Dzhikhaishi in March 1916 (see p. 555). Additions to the text appear to have been made by RNN in 1926 (see p. 553) and the 1960s. The text is written in Russian. The notebook describes Rusudana's first year as a student in St. Petersburg in 1903-1904 and contains occasional passages about the political and revolutionary activity of Rusudana's cousin, the social democrat Iraklii Tsereteli.

      • Rusudana Nikolaevna Nikoladze illustrated memoir, ca. 1926, 1960s. Folder 12 (MSE/REE 0001 PN200-12-Boxed)
        1 vol., with leaves enclosed in loose, cloth-covered binding, 22 cm, 193 leaves with 336 pages of manuscript in Rusudana's hand in ink; additional manuscript material, clippings, postcards, photographs, and letters tipped in. RNN page nos. 1-388. Some pages are partially torn out.

        The notebook is entitled "Notebook N. 5.: 1906-1912 'Two Nicholases"" (Tetrad N. 5.: 1906-1912 'Dva Nikolaia'). It is written in retrospect with no dated entries and is a prequel to the memoir entitled "Notebook N. 6. 'Days of our Life' . . . Continuation 1907-08." Together these two notebooks have three parts, with notebook 5 containing the first and a portion of the second part, while Notebook 6 contains the remainder of the second and the entire third part. The parts are entitled "At the sea" (I u moria), "In the north" (II Na severe), and "Course year" (III IV kurs). It appears that Notebook 5 was written by RNN in Georgia in the 1920s. Annotations to the text appear to have been made by RNN in the 1960s (see p. 12). The text is written in Russian. Between her third and fourth academic years at the Women's Pedagogical Institute in St. Petersburg, Rusudana spent the summer of 1906 in Poti (Georgia) with her father Nikolai Nikoladze. She describes his activities as the city mayor of Poti during the reconstruction of its port. The memoir also focuses on RNN's student life in St. Petersburg.

      • Rusudana Nikolaevna Nikoladze illustrated memoir, ca. 1926, 1960s. Folder 13 (MSE/REE 0001 PN200-13-Boxed)
        1 vol., with leaves and fascicles enclosed in broken binding, 22 cm, 155 leaves with 309 pages of manuscript in Rusudana's hand in ink; additional manuscript material, clippings, postcards, photographs, and letters tipped in. RNN page nos. 389-694.

        The notebook is entitled: "Notebook N. 6.: Days of our Life' As rapid as waves are days of our life . . . Student Song. 'In the North.' Continuation 1907-08." (Tetrad N. 6 "Dni Nashei Zhizni" Bystry kak volny Dni nashei zhizni . . . Studencheskaia pesnia 'Na severe.' prodolzhenie 1907-08). This memoir continues the narrative of Notebook N. 5. It brings to a conclusion "In the north" and continues with "Course year." Again it appears that this volume was written by RNN in Georgia in the 1920s, and annotations to the text were interpolated by her in the 1960s. The text is written in Russian with occasional passages in French and German. Of special note are such items as a photoprint of the session of the State Duma on March 6, 1907 (p. 470), the photoprint of the State Duma session hall before the official opening on April 27, 1906 (p. 466); numerous Iraklii Tsereteli's letters and postcards sent to Rusudana from prison; the title and table-of-contents of the book printed in Geneva, Switzerland in 1908 based on the writings of Iraklii Tsereteli and other prominent social democrats which Rusudana helped to smuggle abroad (pp. 508-509); two entrance passes for the grand meeting dedicated to the memory of D. I. Mendeleev held at the Imperial U. of St. Petersburg in 1907 (p. 581), and a photo of Nikolai (Niko) Nikoladze's work room (p. 651). Rusudana also describes her trips to Imatra (Finland) and Vyborg, the revolutionary events of 1905, the dissolution of the First State Duma in January 1907, the convocation and dissolution of the Second State Duma between February and June of 1907; the arrest and impisonment of Iraklii Tsereteli and fifty-five other members of the Social-Democratic party in June 1907; the death and funeral of Dmitrii Ivanovich Mendeleev in February 1907, and the convocation of the First Mendeleev Congress on December 30, 1907.

      • Rusudana Nikolaevna Nikoladze illustrated memoir, ca. 1920s. Folder 14 (MSE/REE 0001 PN200-14-Boxed)
        1 vol., leaves enclosed in broken binding, 22 cm, 290 leaves with 544 pages of manuscript in Rusudana's hand in ink; additional manuscript material, clippings, postcards and photographs tipped in. Pages 571-574 are missing. RNN page nos. 80-613.

        The volume entitled "At the Waterfall 1911 Abastuman" (U Vodopada Leto 1911 g. Abastuman) describes Rusudana's relationship with the doctor, Konstantin Alekseevich Krestnikov.
