Untitled[edit]

I've changed Alexeieff's birthplace to Kazan from Ufi to reflect the preponderance of online sources. Anyone who has better resources is welcome to contribute.Dhodges 01:50, 5 May 2004 (UTC)

Source for the birthplace Kazan are his obituary in the Times and his biographer. -- €pa 00:53, 15 June 2007 (UTC)

I am Claire Parker's sister's grandson and we always knew he came from Kazan. I have added some material and corrected some errors in the article. I have a fair amount of personal material, with details like how he and Parker got along, parts of his memoirs from his cadet days. Don't know if adding that stuff would be appropriate. I can also add info about Claire. However I suggest that Alexeieff is by far the more prominent name and that he deserves a page of his own--Koshpeli (talk) 06:47, 20 August 2009 (UTC)

I second. -- €pa (talk) 02:30, 27 August 2009 (UTC)

Will add books he illustrated later. Koshpeli (talk) 06:39, 7 September 2009 (UTC)

sanatorium[edit]

"Alexeieff spent seven years in a sanatorium due to damage caused to his lungs by chemicals he used in xylography, etching and aquatinting."

Months seems more likely. I don't have either of the sources listed to hand. -Dhodges (talk) 15:55, 2 October 2009 (UTC)

Thanks for making me go back to the original. I translated this booklet from the Museum of Film in Moscow a few years ago when my Russian wasn't as strong-Svetlana Rockwell says three years and I now thinking about it wonder if that means he went seasonally for three years, or periodically. It does seem unlikely that he lived at a sanatorium for three years straight.Koshpeli (talk) 05:07, 6 October 2009 (UTC)

contributions from daughter[edit]

Alexeieff's daughter was kind enough to write me an email and clarified a number of points as well as editing a few mistakes. I'm not really sure how to reference her emails but she provided a lot of extra details as well as giving explanations for a number of facts in the text. RE: Sanatorium, she said that it was 2 years--which has been fixed in the article.Koshpeli (talk) 03:09, 2 November 2009 (UTC)
