(John Reed (1887-1920), U.S. journalist, author. Ten Days That Shook the World (1919).
Reed's pioneering work of reportage was an eye-witness account of the October Revolution as it unfolded in St. Petersburg. His experiences made him a fervent apologist for the Bolsheviks, and, after helping to found the Communist Labor Party in the United States, he returned to the Soviet Union to work in the bureau of propaganda. He was buried in the Kremlin.)
