Michael Karpovich taught at Harvard University from 1927 until 1957, during which time he exercised the most profound influence upon the field of Russian studies in North America. His extraordinary cohort of graduate students included virtually all the historians who would dominate the discipline for the rest of the 20 th century and beyond (Malia, Pipes, Haimson, Riasanovsky, Daniels, Raeff, among others). Some directly borrowed and elaborated his ideas and teachings, others rejected or built on them in order to go in different directions, but all benefited from his wisdom, guidance, and generous support. This paper traces the nature of Karpovich's influence, his ideas and Weltanschauung, especially as they related to late imperial Russia and the Revolution of 1917.
