About this Item

The scrapbook consists of 28 pages and includes two letters from Fedorova, 11 original photographs, five pieces of ephemera and numerous newspaper clippings. Nina Fedorova (1895-1985) was the pen name of Antonina (Mrs. V,A.) Riasanovsky. She won the 1940 Atlantic Prize Novel Award for her much admired novel "The Family." Fedorova, with her husband and two sons were Russian immigrants to the United States in 1938, settling in Eugene, OR. The family had earlier fled both Russia, because of the revolution and China, because of the Japanese invasion. Fedorova's novel is drawn from her personal experiences during these times. The scrapbook, which appears to have been kept by Mrs. G.H. Good, a friend of Fedorova's, focuses on events surrounding Fedorova winning the prize novel award. In 1942, Fedorova, had a second novel published ("The Children") and a third book "Life" which was written in Russian. In the early 1950's she and her family moved to San Francisco.
