Bolsover Collection (circa) (1928-1985)

An online catalogue for this collection is available.

George Henry Bolsover (1910-1990) was born in 1910. After obtaining a first degree and MA from the School of Russian Studies, Liverpool University and a doctorate from SSEES, he worked as tutor and assistant lecturer respectively at Birmingham and Manchester Universities. In 1943, his expertise in Russian resulted in his being appointed attache and first secretary to the British Embassy in Moscow, a post he held until 1947. On his return to Britain in 1947, Bolsover was appointed Director of SSEES. Bolsover was to be Director for the next 29 years, presiding over a period of growth in interest in Russian and East European studies and SSEES' post war expansion. As well as administrative duties, Bolsover was on the editorial board of the "Slavonic and East European Review" until 1963, and was its sometime editor. He was also invoved in arrangements for Hungarian refugee students to study at British universities after 1956 and the fight against a recommendation that SSEES be incorporated into a multi faculty college. He was sometimes called upon by the BBC to comment on Soviet affairs. He retired in 1976.
