Description
Correspondence, clippings, promotional materials, and photographs, relating to the General Platoff Don Cossack Chorus.
Background
N. F. Kostriukov was the long-time conductor of the General Platoff Don Cossack Chorus. He was born on 3 December 1898 in Tsymlianskaia stanitsa in the Don Cossack region. He studied mining engineering in Czechoslovakia in the 1920s, but never graduated because in 1927 he established the General Platoff Don Cossack Chorus, with which he toured the world for nearly half a century. His chorus became almost as well-known as that of Serge Jaroff.
