Vladimir Putin was born on October 7, 1952 in Leningrad. “I come from an ordinary family, and this is how I lived for a long time, nearly my whole life. I lived as an average, normal person and I have always maintained that connection,” Mr Putin recalls.

“We lived simply - cabbage soup, cutlets, pancakes, but on Sundays and holidays my Mom would bake very delicious stuffed buns [pirozhki] with cabbage, meat and rice, and curd tarts [vatrushki],” Mr Putin says.

His mother did not approve of his decision to do judo. “Every time I went to a practice session, she would grumble, ‘He’s off to his fights again.’” Things changed after Vladimir Putin’s coach visited his home and told his parents about what he did and what he achieved; the family’s attitude toward this sport changed.

W. W. Prescott was an influential administrator, educator, and scholar. His parents had been Millerites in New England, where he took his schooling, graduating in 1877 from Dartmouth College, in New Hampshire. He taught Latin and Greek while still in his last year in academy and was principal of two Vermont high schools from 1877 to 1880. Later, he owned and edited the Montpelier, Vermont, State Republican.

Prescott was president of Battle Creek College from 1885 to 1894. While still president there, he helped form Union College, becoming its first president in 1891. Then, late in 1892, he also became president of Walla Walla College, thus simultaneously being president of three Adventist colleges in that year.

While on world tour in 1894-1895 Prescott helped to found the Avondale School for Christian Workers (now Avondale College) in Australia. In 1901 he became vice president of the General Conference, chair of the Review and Herald Publishing Board, and editor of the Review. He was field secretary of the General Conference from 1915 until he retired in 1937.
