June 1909 Mom's Father, Grandmother and Grandfather

This section contains some pictures from my family archives. My father was an expert in far eastern labor affairs who became a foreign service officer. His parents were Finnish immigrants and socialists. My mother's parents were Russian Jewish intellectuals; her mother was an anarchist, her father a research chemist and an expert in air and water pollution. She taught high school French and English, then became an environmental activist. Both my parents were very, very bright; they were multilingual, widely read, and curious. They gave me a lot and I miss them very much.

When I started this website and put up the photograph section, my mother had just died and I was working on "Going Home;" I was caught up in family stories and family histories, and I gathered photographs that would underscore some of the music I was writing. Time has passed, as it always does, and I have–to my amazement–a new family. Come inside to meet my wife Robin and our twin boys, Kalevi and Daniel Kaukonen.
