American composer Ulysses Simpson Kay was a member of the United States
first cultural exchange program with the Soviet Union. During a visit to his home and subsequent interview, we chatted extensively about his experience in Russia and the Russian people.



I was somewhat surprised when he shared that the Russian people "are most like Americans" than any other country he visited. See http://chevalierdesaintgeorges.homestead.com/kay.html
