Biographical history

Koozma John Tarasoff was born February 19, 1932, on a farm near the Doukhobor community of Pokrovka, Saskatchewan. He received formal training in psychology, philosophy, anthropology and sociology. He worked in the 1960s and 1970s for the Government of Canada and the Government of Saskatchewan as a research officer, ethnologist and project manager. Since 1980, he worked extensively as a consultant, writer, lecturer, photojournalist and advisor on multiculturalism and cultural and international exchange. His books and reports cover a wide variety of topics, including multiculturalism, community studies, peace and disarmament, Soviet-West relations, behavioural change and the Doukhobors. His work Spririt Wrestlers: Doukhobor Pioneers' Strategies for Living was published in 2002. As of 2005, Tarasoff was resident in Ottawa, Ontario. As part of the 1958 centennial celebrations in B.C., Tarasoff began a collection of photographs pertaining to Doukhobors in B.C. These copies were compiled and indexed by Tarasoff and donated to the Archives from 1960 until 1992. They document the history of the Doukhobors, from beginnings in Russia in the 19th century, emigration to North America, and current history through the 20th century. Images depict all aspects of culture, individuals and communities.
