Printing plant named for Dunaev, [Moscow]
The Dunaev printing plant was located at 9 Bolshaia Polianka in Moscow. Headquartered inside the former Menert Brothers printing plant, during the 1920s, the firm was named in honor of the Bolshevik leader Evlampii Dunaev (1877-1919) who served as assistant chairman of the Soviet of Nizhny Novgorod. Dunaev was also a member of the provisioning committee and he served on the Nizhny Novgorod Council of Local Economy. During the Civil War, he reportedly died from typhus. Before the plant was named in Dunaev’s honor, it was under the management of Geokartprom of the V.T.U. (Military Topographic Directorate of the Headquarters of the Red Army).
