Boris Glinsky

Boris Borisovich Glinsky (Russian: Бори′с Бори′сович Гли′нский, 12 October 1860, Saint Petersburg, Russian Empire, – 30 November 1917, Petrograd, Soviet Russia) was a Russian writer, publicist, publisher, editor and politician. A prominent historian and biographer, Glinsky published numerous articles and essays, mainly in Istorichesky Vestnik, which he was also the editor of in 1913–1917, Severny Vestnik (editor and publisher in 1890—1891), and Russkaya Budushchnost (Russian Future, 1915—1917). Described as a 'progressive nationalist', Glinsky supported both the 1917 February Revolution and the Kornilov affair. As a result, in August 1917 he was arrested on the counter-revolutionary charges, but in October 1917 was released. Glinsky died in Petrograd on 30 November 1917.[1]
