Biographical history

Peter P. Verigin, Peter Lordly's son, was born January 2, 1881, also in Slavyanka (like his father), in the province of Elizavetpol. He succeeded his father in leading the CCUB Doukhobors in Canada from 1927 until the collapse of the community in 1938. Despite ill health in his later years, he restructured the CCUB into current organization - the USCC. Peter P. Verigin known as "Chistyakov" (the "Cleanser" or the "Purger") died in Saskatoon, Sask. on February 11, 1939, and was buried beside the remains of his father.
