Marie Gagarine grew up amid the luxury and privilege of tsarist Russia. With the Revolution of 1917, the world of her youth was swept away and she was forced to flee, eventually finding a new life for herself and her sons in the United States. Today she is a devoted citizen of her adopted country, dedicated to her teaching at Wofford College in Spartanburg, South Carolina.
