ANNA BOGIN (b. 1899)
Her maiden name was Pinson.  She was born in Postov (Postawy, Postavy), Vilna district, and studied in a Russian public school.  From 1911 she was in the United States.  She pursued various lines of work.  She began publishing poems in Fraye arbeter shtime (Free voice of labor) in 1940; and contributed to Tsukunft (Future) and Feder (Pen), among others, in New York, and Der shpigl (The mirror) in Argentina.  Among her writings: Fun tifn gemit, lider (From a deep disposition, poems) (New York, 1951), 106 pp.  “Bogin’s poems,” wrote Yankev Glatshteyn, “possess great lyrical quality.  Bogin can paint a picture without words.”
