MEMOIR CHAUNCY D. HARRIS (Chicago, USA) RUSSIAN, SLA VI C, AND SOVIET STUDIES IN THE UNITED STATES: SOME MEMORIES AND NOTES* A few personal memories and notes on the rise and development of Rus- sian, Slavic, and Soviet Studies in the United States during the last half cen- tury are here presented without any attempt at a full or even balanced history. 1 The emphasis is on three periods of intense activity and fruitful initiatives, 1946-50, 1956-60, and 1983, and on origins rather than later developments. The focus is on national programs, committees, associations, publications, bibliographies, reviews, and funding. Scholarly contributions of individuals or developments in the separate disciplines are not here discussed. Since sixty- five participants are mentioned, and some may be unfamiliar to some readers, I try, on first mention of each name, to provide a brief identification by field and university (or other institution). *The author thanks William B. Edgerton, Ralph T. Fisher, Jr. and John M. Thompson for helpful comments on a draft of this paper. 1. For a discussion of the early development of Soviet area studies in the United States, see Philip E. Mosely, "The Growth of Russian Studies," in American Research
