Stalin's granddaughter Chrese Evans

Part of our occasional series, Interesting but useless trivia. Trivia that is certainly interesting, but yeah, pretty useless in the grand scheme of things. Not likely to result in a promotion, raise, or your next big career move.

Josef Stalin (1878-1953), who led the Soviet Union for nearly 30 years, from the mid-1920s until his death, has a granddaughter living in Portland, Oregon.
