Scope and Content Note

This collection consists of the records of the Russian Rod and Gun Club, a non-profit organization, whose primary purpose was to unite those who are interested in fishing, hunting and related sports and to promote said sports by sponsoring contests and competitions. The collection also includes photographs of members of the Club and their social activities.
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.
