Click here for a bio of F N Glinka, one of the Decembrists. He was in prison for only a short time for his revolutionary ties (less than a year); Fyodor Nikolayevich remained an active public figure until his death in his 80s. In his 70s, he organised charitable work in Tver, including soup kitchens and craft schools for the poor.
