Данчич, Борис Викторович
Born Russian Empire, 1892; died Leningrad, 1942

As a student in the 1920s at the Leningrad Higher Art and Technical Institute (LVHUTEIN), Danchich gained a formidable base in architecture and town planning. He became Chief Architect of the Leningrad section of the State Design Institute, Grostroiproekt (Горстройпроект) and even though he is not known for work as a graphic designer, he did perform a limited number of designs in that field.

Architecturally, his notable works are: the Metallurgical Plant of Magnitogorsk along with its city plan; the College and School of Federal Law in Novokuznetsk, Siberia; the Leningrad bakery works in the Kushelevka neighborhood of that city and the town plan of Komsomolsk-on-Amur in Eastern Russia.

Because he remained in Leningrad during the siege on that city incurred by Germany, he died of exhaustion while evacuating to the town of Orsk in 1942.
