Robert Kinloch Massie III (born 1929) is a Pulitzer Prize-winning American historian and biographer. He has devoted much of his career to studying the House of Romanov, Russia's royal family from 1613 to 1917. He studied United States and European history at Yale and Oxford University on a Rhodes Scholarship. Massie worked as a journalist for Newsweek from 1959–62 then at the Saturday Evening Post. In 1967 Massie wrote and published his breakthrough book, Nicholas and Alexandra, a biography of Nicholas II and Alexandra of Hesse, the last Emperor and Empress of Russia. In 1971 the book was the basis of an Academy Award-winning film of the same title. In 1995, in his book The Romanovs: The Final Chapter, Massie updated Nicholas and Alexandra with much newly discovered information. He was the president of the Authors Guild from 1987–91, and currently serves as an ex officio council member. While president of the Guild, he called on authors to boycott any store refusing to carry Salman Rushdie's The Satanic Verses.
