In 2015 Elisabeth Nelidow Pantaleoni (BMC 1951) gave these 17 letters from Ivan Turgenev to her grandmother Olga Nelidova (née Khilkova) to Bryn Mawr College to be scanned and placed in the College repository, with the originals to be placed in the College manuscript collection. The letters came from the estate of her sister, Irina Nelidow (BMC AB 1950, MA 1952), who had been working on a translation and commentary with the assistance of Anatoly Vishevsky, a professor of Russian at Grinell College. Their labors produced the present introduction, translation and commentary in the mid-1990’s but Irene’s efforts to secure publication were unsuccessful.
