Kornilov (Корнилов) Boris Petrovich
Boris Kornilov was a Soviet, communist poet. He is probably best known for penning the words to «The Song of the Meeting» which was used to open the morning radio broadcast throughout the Soviet Union, even for years after its author was killed in Stalin's purges. Kornilov has been posthumously rehabilitated, and there is a museum and a statue dedicated to him in the town of Semyonov, near his birthplace. He was married to Olga Berggolts.
