Anastas Ivanovich Mikoyan
Birth: Nov. 25, 1895
Death: Oct. 21, 1978

Soviet Communist Leader. He joined the Communist Party in 1915, became a member of the party's Central Committee in 1923, and subsequently held cabinet posts concerned with trade and the food industry. In 1935 he was elected to the Politburo, the Party's ruling body. He held other government posts before serving as First Deputy Premier from 1955 to 1957 and from 1958 to 1964. Mikoyan was believed to have been the second most powerful man in the Soviet Union during the regime of Nikita Khrushchev. His trips to Cuba and the United States during these years made him widely visible in international politics. He is also credited with introducing many popular American food items to the USSR. Following Khrushchev's ouster in 1964, Mikoyan was given the largely honorary post of Chairman of the Presidium of the Supreme Soviet. Although not reelected to the Politburo in 1966, he continued to serve on the Central Committee. In 1974 he was dropped from the Supreme Soviet, thereby completing his retirement from public office. (bio by: Mr. Badger Hawkeye)
