Originally from Lutsk, Ukraine, Dr. Bilinsky earned an AB, magna cum laude, from Harvard University in 1954, just a few years after the close of World War II. He spent a year in postgraduate work with Soviet affairs at Harvard, and in 1958 earned a PhD from Princeton University. As a postgraduate, he was an associate of the Russian Research Center at Harvard, and later joined Douglass College at Rutgers, the State University of New Jersey, as an instructor. In 1961, Dr. Bilinksy joined the University of Delaware, and taught until accepting his current title in 2002. He also taught at the University of Pennsylvania and Columbia University as a visiting professor.
Dr. Bilinsky has been a leader in his professional and civic communities, and was a trustee and corresponding secretary of Saints Peter and Paul UOC in the late ‘60s. He initially published something closer to home, “The Second Soviet Republic: the Ukraine after World War II” in 1964. He is an expert on the famine and genocide that occurred in Ukraine during that time period. Today, Dr. Bilinsky still enjoys writing, and spending time with his eight grandchildren.
