Scope and Content of Collection
This collection contains individual holographs and typescripts (with occasional associated correspondence) donated to Holy
Trinity Orthodox Seminary. The majority of these materials are in Russian, and include previously unpublished memoirs, historical
essays and poetry. Among the authors are veterans of the White Army, whose memoirs focus, among other topics, on Imperial
Russia, the revolution of 1917, the Russian Civil War, and émigré existence.
Among the manuscripts relating to the Russian Army in the First World War are V. Granberg, "27-aia pekhotnaia diviziia v boiu
pod Stallupenenom i v srazhenii pod Gumbinenom," and Georgii Ottonovich Raukh, "2-aia gvardeiskaia kavaleriiskaia diviziia
v Vostochnoi Prussii 23 iiunia – 7 sentiabria 1914 goda." The third volume of the memoirs of Prince Nikolai Zhevakhov, former
assistant ober-prokuror of the Holy Synod, concerning his life and activities in emigration, are a continuation of two previously
published volumes of memoirs covering the period 1915-1917. This third volume was never published.
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 the Holy Trinity Seminary. The grant also
provides depositing a microfilm copy in the Hoover Institution Archives. The original materials remain in the Holy Trinity
Seminary Archives as its property. A transfer table indicating corresponding box and reel numbers is appended to this register.
Any views, findings, conclusions or recommendations expressed in these materials do not necessarily represent those of the
