Information needed on V.N.Kokovtsov (1853-1943)

One of my students  plans to write her college honors thesis next year on the unpublished childhood memoir of Vladimir Nikolaevich Kokovtsov, who was a career civil servant in the imperial government and occupied posts of some importance under Nicholas II.  She will be translating and annotating sections of this manuscript (she's a native speaker).  Does anyone know anything about this individual?  Many thanks.
