SHOLEM GORDON (1890-August 1963)
            He wrote literary critical works for the first Yiddish anthologies in Soviet Russia: Eygns (One’s own), Shtrom (Tide), Nayerd (New land), and Oktyaber (October).  He was accused of writing “formalistic and impressionistic criticism” (Shtrom 1 [1922]).  Further biographical information on him remains unknown.
