    Scope and Content Note

    Iustina V. Kruzenshtern-Peterets (1903-1983) was a poet, writer, and journalist in China and the United States. She wrote for a number of émigré publications, among them Gun-Bao in Harbin and Vecherniaia zaria in Shanghai, and Novoe russkoe slovo and Russkaia zhizn' in the United States, and also worked as a commentator for Radio Liberty (the collection contains transcripts she worked on; see SPEECHES AND WRITINGS/General/Transcripts). Of particular interest are her correspondence with well-known émigré writers and poets, and her untitled memoirs of life in Harbin and Shanghai (SPEECHES AND WRITINGS/Untitled memoirs and "V krasnom Shankhae," Russkaia zhizn', 1961). The collection later passed through the hands of Mariia Tourkoff (Vizi), and includes explanatory notes in her hand, as well as photographs and certain additional material in the subject file.
    Detailed processing and preservation microfilming for these materials were made possible by a generous grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities and by matching funds from the Hoover Institution and Museum of Russian Culture. The grant also provides depositing a microfilm copy in the Hoover Institution Archives. The original materials remain in the Museum of Russian Culture, San Francisco as its property. A transfer table indicating corresponding box and reel numbers is available at the Hoover Institution Archives.
