    (May 2, 1881-June 11, 1970)
    Raised in Tashkent, Uzbekistan
    Member of the Russian Duma (1912-1917)
    Prime Minister of Russian Provisional Government (1917)
    Overthrown by the Bolsheviks under Lenin (October Revolution, 1917)

    He was described as having a squeaky, high-pitched voice and feminine gestures.
    As a lawyer, he defended radical, anti-Tsarist political revolutionaries.
    He refused to withdraw Russia from World War I, even though Russia was losing disastrously and the Russian Civil War was happening.
    He failed to stop the spread of Bolshevism and the rise of the Soviet Union.
    He fled Russia after Vladimir Lenin seized power, thinking that Lenin would soon be overthrown and that he would be able to return.
    Instead, Lenin survived and Kerensky spent the rest of his life in exile.
    Ironically, he was born in the same town as Lenin and his father wrote a college recommendation for Lenin to Kazan University.
    He was a moderate socialist whose goal was to bring constitutional democracy to Russia.
    He was an eloquent speaker and a dynamic politician and leader.
    He fought against the excesses and abuses of government by Tsar Nicholas II.
    He opposed state-sponsored persecution of the Jews.
    As head of the Russian government, he instituted many civil liberties such as freedom of speech and universal suffrage.
    He urged democratic countries to intervene against communism and fascism in Europe.
    He became a respected professor at Stanford University and helped expand the university’s Russian history library.
    When he died, the local Russian Orthodox Churches in New York unfairly blamed him for the rise of the Soviet Union and refused to let him be buried in their cemeteries.
