    Scope and Content Note

    Aleksandr Aleksandrovich Kurenkov (also known as Alexander A. Koor/Koorenkoff), was a Russian Major-General. After immigrating to the United States in 1923 he became an active member of different Russian émigré associations and the émigré monarchist movement. He expressed his views in the newspaper Vestnik pravdy (San Francisco) for which he was a publisher and editor (see OVERSIZE FILE). This collection mainly contains Koorenkov's writings, as well as background materials and printed matter, related to his interest in the pre-history of Russia and the Slavs, and in particular, the so-called "Vlesova Kniga" or "Doshchechki Izenbeka."
    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.
