Russian politician, the first Secretary of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union, 1953-1964, and the Premier of Russia 1958-1964.
He died 9/11/1971 in Moscow.
Original entry listed date of March 17, 1894 at 12:30 PM in Kursk from the "Bolshaya Sovyetskaya Entsiklopediya," (Great Russian Encyclopedia), Moscow, Soviet Encyclopedia Publication Organization, 1974, third edition. (April 5 OS). The original source notes went on to say: "Das Neue Zeitalter of 1 2/26/1959 gave April 29, 1894 NS. AQR Spring/1961 gave April 17 NS, 12:30 PM LMT and added that when Khruschev visited the U.S. he said he did not know the year. Eshelman quotes Garth Allen, "A 1959 series of articles by journalists John Lewis and Eckert Goodman which ran in the New York Daily News stated that Khruschev was born March 17, 1893 or April 17, 1894 in the village of Kalinovka, the northeast border of Ukrania, Kursk. The records disappeared when the village was destroyed during the war and Khruschev settled on the latter date as "It made me feel younger."
Douglas Coe in a letter dated 4/93, states, "Several sources clearly note that he was born April 5 OS. Encyclopedia Americana now has April 17, where it formerly had April 16. Fowler's gives 1:00 AM, no source. The village of his birth was destroyed in the war and has since rebuilt and is on current maps." On the Astro.com forum in May 2009, Isaac Starkman writes: "We have record for his exact date of birth. William Taubman in his biography (2003) page 661:
"During his life, Khrushchev celebrated his birthday as April 17, 1894. But the birth register of the Archangel Church in his village records the actual date as two days earlier. According to Russia's old-style pre-Revolutionary calendar, the dates were April 3 and 5. In our calendar the date is April 15 1894." Tompson's "Khruschev: A Political Life" gives the same information. In December 2009, PT changed the birth date in this entry to be consistent with these books. In the absence of original documents and in light of the many variations, the DD rating is retained.
