Which spelling to be used ?
STAREWICZ is the Polish spelling of his name.
STAREVITCH is often used in English.
STAREWITCH is used by Starewitch himself when he came in France – as a signature and when he wrote letters – so as Starewitch’s signature used to be STAREWITCH with a W, we are going to use this spelling all through theses information pages and documents.
However he himself sometimes used a V instead of a W. In France, his name has often been altered.
For example, here is Ladislas Starewitch’s spelling on the book used in The Tale of the Fox, 1929-1930.
