Stalin was -- without a doubt -- the archetype of all the Soviet Great Eradicators. So ingrained was the habit of erasing all evidence of the existence of any and all "enemies of the Revolution" that, after Stalin died and his great favorite Beria fell out of favor with Malenkov and the rest of the Kremlin creeps, all owners of the Great Soviet Encyclopedia were instructed to remove the page with Beria's bio; they soon thereafter received, in the mail, a new page -- this one about the Bering Sea. True story!
