 Alexander Kerensky
Kerensky was born on May 4, 1881 in Simbirsk and educated at the University of Sait Petersburg.

Kerensky, who in the meantime had gone to the front in an effort to win support among the troops, organized a military force and attempted to capture Petrograd, but the troops refused to fight.

Alexander Fedorovich Kerensky (Russian:Алекса́ндр Фёдорович Ке́ренский;) (April 22, 1881 (May 2, New Style) - June 11, 1970) was the chairman of the Russian Provisional Government after the downfall of the last Tsar and immediately before the Bolsheviks and Lenin came to power.
Lenin was determined to overthrow Kerensky's government before it could be legitimised by the planned elections for a Russian Constituent Assembly, and on November 7 (New Style), the Bolsheviks militia staged a coup in Petrograd (later mythologised by Bolshevik propaganda as a working-class revolution).
Kerensky eventually settled in New York City, but he spent much of his time at the Hoover Institute at Stanford University in California, where he both used and contributed to the Institute's huge archive on Russian history, and where he taught graduate courses.

Alexander Kerensky was born in 1881 in a sleepy town on the mid-Volga River called Simbirsk--the birthplace 11 years earlier of one Vladimir Ilyich Ulyanov, better known as Lenin.
Despite the public's distaste for the war, Kerensky and his government colleagues were supreme nationalists, under pressure from the Allies to honor Russian commitments and loath to envision a break-up of their empire at the hands of the Germans.
Kerensky later maintained that there was one principal force responsible for the rise of the Bolsheviks from their status as a minor splinter group--namely, a master plot by the Germans.

Whether General Kerensky knew where was leading the Exodus when he left the Inner Sphere is one of the questions historians have tried to answer for the past two and a half centuries.
Kerensky was strong and dynamic during the Exodus, shuttling between ships as much as possible to address his followers during the layovers between jumps.
The young Kerensky saw that the eventual salvation of his people and the preservation of his father's ideals were far more important than fighting a "political squabble." Thus did Nicholas call for his own "Exodus" to the cluster world of Strana Mechty.

 Kerensky, Aleksandr Fyodorovich --  Britannica Concise Encyclopedia - Your gateway to all Britannica has to offer!
In May, when a public uproar over the announcement of Russia's war aims (which Kerensky had approved) forced several ministers to resign, Kerensky was transferred to the posts of minister of war and of the navy and became the dominant personality in the new government.
He subsequently planned a new offensive and toured the front, using his inspiring rhetoric to instill in the demoralized troops a desire to renew their efforts and defend the revolution.
When the provisional government was again compelled to reorganize in July, Kerensky, who adhered to no rigid political dogma and whose dramatic oratorical style appeared to win him broad popular support, became prime minister.

Their confidence in Kerensky's peacetime leadership abilities was utterly destroyed when their son was killed by a stray bullet during a Lyran-Combine riot in a Babylon marketplace.

 Return of Kerensky (3049-Present A.D.)   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
When General Aleksandr Kerensky fled the Inner Sphere with most of the Star League Regular Army in 2784, he led his followers to a group of five previously unsettled worlds far from the Inner Sphere.
This was only fitting, for the general taught that it was his people's duty to remain strong, so that one day, after the Inner Sphere had exhausted itself with war, his followers might return as the saviors of humanity to reestablish the Star League on Terra.
While the Succession Wars of the Inner Sphere resulted in the loss of much precious technology, this civil war was even more disastrous for the exiles, for whom technology meant the difference between life and death in the hostile environments of their new home.

Russian Marxists made them a medium for organizing against the state, and between the February and October Revolutions, the Petrograd Soviet was a powerful force.

Following the October Revolution, all factories eventually had soviets organized according to the Bolshevik understanding of Marxist-Leninist theory, supplanting the earlier meaning that allowed for independent soviets.
