In Part 3 of Gravity's Rainbow, during a factual introduction of Tchitcherine where at last identifying details are given the reader about this character, Pynchon states, "He is no relation at all to the Tchitcherine who dealt the Rapallo Treaty with Walter Rathenau" (338). This Tchitcherine (Georgi) also participated in the Lausanne Treaty of 1923, where he briefly met Ernest Hemingway.
