    Historical Note

    Polish legation in Finland.

    Scope and Content Note

    The records of the Polish Legation in Finland (Poselstwo Rzeczposplitej Polskiej w Finlandii) were received by the Hoover Institution in 1945 and consist mainly of a large portion of the telegrams exchanged with the Foreign Ministry Headquarters in Warsaw, but also include instructions and annotated typescripts of the agreement with Finland signed in Warsaw in March 1920.
    Though the telegrams cover the entire inter-war period and go up to 1941, most of them date from the 1920s, giving a good insight into the functioning of a diplomatic post in the first decade of Poland's independence.
