Alexander Fedorovich Kerensky (Александр Фёдорович Керенский) (April 22, 1881 - June 11, 1970) was the Prime Minister of Russia after the downfall of the last Tsar and immediately before the Bolsheviks 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 lived in Paris until 1940, engaged in the endless splits and quarrels of the exiled Russian democratic leaders.

Although the last decade of Alexander’s reign was marked by reaction and repressive measures, closer intellectual intercourse between Western Europe and Russia resulted in the radicalization of many members of the Russian intelligentsia, particularly students, the upper middle class, and the younger landed nobility.
Alexander II Nicholas died in 1855, and peace was concluded a year later by his son, Alexander II.
However, Kerensky’s attempts to mount a major offensive in the summer of 1917 were bitterly resented by ordinary Russians dreading another winter of war, and hampered by conflict with the Petrograd Soviet, which had been revived earlier in the year.

 Alexander Kerensky Summary
Kerensky, the son of a headmaster, was born in Simbirsk (now Ulyanovsk), the same town as Lenin (then Ulyanov).
But Kerensky and the other political leaders felt obliged by their commitments to Russia's allies to continue involvement in World War I - especially as the economy, already under huge stress from the war effort, would likely crumble if vital supplies from France and the UK were to stop.
Kerensky eventually settled in New York City, but spent much of his time at the Hoover Institution at Stanford University in California, where he both used and contributed to the Institution's huge archive on Russian history, and where he taught graduate courses.
