Groman, Vladimir Gustavovich.Tsarism to SovietMenshevik economist and statistician.
Believed in lower grain prices through regulation.
Lars T Lih describes Groman as "A fascinatingly typical member of his generation of the Russian intelligentsia, a generation whose enthusiasm had been excited by the opportunities for reform first of the war period and then of the revolutionary period but which was disillusioned by Lenin and destroyed by Stalin."1
Representative sent by the Union of Towns to the Special Conference on Food Supply during WWI.2
