Quotes from others about the person
“The division commander K. D. Karsanov spoke with gratitude about his Commissioner:
"The headquarters of the division would not have coped with the formation, if it did not interact day by day with the political Department of the compound. If staff officers saw their aim as quickly as possible to obtain and distribute to the brigade personnel and weapons, to organize combat training, the workers of the political Department has sought from the outset to create a strong party and Komsomol groups, based on which commanders-edinomyshlenniki could cobble together units and to achieve high combat readiness. The political Department of the division was headed by Colonel I. S. guard. Kuvshinov is an old Bolshevik, a participant of the civil war, a person of high General culture, a scientist-economist by civil specialty. From the first days of the war he was the Commissar of the division of the people's militia of Zamoskvoretsky district of Moscow, later transformed into the 17th infantry division. In the hot battles of the autumn of 1941 in the fields near Moscow the division was destroying a lot of enemy manpower, then with the other compounds moved to the offensive. The Commissioner of Pitchers with the help of party organizations managed to create a high offensive impulse among the personnel."”
