Stalin's Daughter Dies From Colon Cancer

Lana Peters, Stalin's daughter died last week of colon cancer in a small town in west-central Wisconsin. She chose to live in Wisconsin at least partly because she had met her husband at Frank Lloyd Wright's architectural headquarters, which is located in the state. There, she met Wes Peters, an architect who worked with Wright. She says she hated her father because he destroyed her life twice: by refusing to allow her to marry a filmmaker in Russia and then preventing her from studying art and film.
