Page 2 of Schmerling's Résumé

This is the second page of a résumé filled out by Schmerling in 1914 when he became a drawing instructor at the Mikhailov Trade School in Tbilisi. Very few of Schmerling's documents have survived, making this résumé a primary source for basic biographical information.

This page is mostly blank because it asks about Schmerling's history of state service, while he was in fact entering his first position at a state institution. We do learn, however, that Schmerling's wife was named Anzhelika, and that they had a daughter named René in 1901 (later a prominent art historian) and a son named Edgar in 1906. See the annotations for a full translation.
