Caption: Peter Kropotkin (1842-1921), Russian geographer, anarchist and prince, also known as Pyotr Alexeyevich Kropotkin. Kropotkin was a descendent of the founder of the Rurik Dynasty that ruled Kievan Rus, but he stopped using his title at the age of twelve. He worked for five years in the army, but then left and studied geography in St Petersburg. He joined a revolutionary party in the 1870s, and was imprisoned, escaping in 1876. He then lived in Switzerland, France and England. His final years were spent in the Soviet Union following the February 1917 revolution. His works include 'The Conquest of Bread' (1892), 'Fields, Factories and Workshops' (1898) and 'Mutual Aid: A Factor of Evolution' (1902). Photograph from the Bain News Service.
