Here's a quote from an article by Anna Louise Strong in the Moscow Daily News, September 5, 1933, p. 2:
"Last autumn MacDowell came back from a trip through North Caucasus . . . Everyone knows Mac--Mac with the Order of Lenin. And Mac knows farms in all parts of the USSR. In more than ten years, from Kuzbai to Rostov, he's worked on them, good farms and bad farms of every kind."
Who was MacDowell?
