We are deeply saddened to learn of the passing of Alexis S. Troubetzkoy.

Troubetzkoy, born the scion of a Russian princely family, was an internationally published writer and archivist. Many of us at Dundurn had the privilege to work with him on his two most recent books, Arctic Obsession: The Lure of the Far North and The St. Petersbrug Connection. 

Although born in France and raised partly in the United States, Troubetzkoy called Canada home for more than 30 years with a career in education as a headmaster of private schools in Montreal and Toronto.
