materials in the Bakhmeteff Archive of Russian and East European History and Culture Born Lev Lifshits Loseff was the son of Vladimir Lifshits a well known Russian poet He graduated from the Leningrad State University and soon after started writing poetry for Russian children s magazines In order not to be confused with his father he changed his name to Loseff He immigrated to the U S in 1976 and

manuscripts and books with inscriptions cover the period 1969 to 2001 Some of the photographs cover an even earlier period in Brodsky s life in Soviet Russia The collection also includes legal papers relating to Joseph Brodsky s will Lev Loseff s correspondence with well known Russian émigré intellectuals including Sergei Dovlatov Ivan Elagin Konstantin Kuzminsky Leonid Rzhevsky is complimented by

scholarship in the United States The Loseff Collection will also enhance the research and outreach activities of both the Harriman Institute and the East European Studies Center both recipients of recent NEH Summer Institute grants for the study of America s Russophone and East Central European communities The Loseff collection constitutes an important complement to Brodsky materials already
