Scope and Content Note

Nikolai F. Kostriukov was the conductor and director of the General Platoff Don Cossack Chorus, and these papers reflect the history of that chorus, its tours and concerts. Materials include concert programs, reviews, photographs, and correspondence.
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 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.
