MIKHAILOV, Mikhail Larionovitch, Russian author: b. Ural Mountains, 1826; d. Siberia, 1865. He was educated at Petrograd and engaged in literary pursuits as a translator, journalist and writer of fiction. His political sympathies caused his exile to Siberia. He was a contributor to Sovremennik (The Contemporary) and an able advocate of the reforms of the self-emancipation era. His collected translations and writings were published (3 vols., 1858-59).
