The article is based on a series of memoirs dedicated to a pre-revolutionary St. Petersburg socialite baroness Varvara Uexküll von Gyllenband (e.g., those of Ekaterina Letkova-Sultanova and Tatiana Shchepkina-Kupernik). It also specifies the date of a sculptor Prince Sergei Ukhtomsky’s (1886—1921) arrest, and makes public a previously unknown letter from Korney Chukovsky concerning the living conditions of Uexküll von Gyllenband in 1921.

Keywords: 20th-Century Russian History, Bolshevik Revolution, Varvara Uexküll von Gyllenband (1850—1928), Life Story, Russian Emigration, Soviet Terror.
