Scope and Content Note
This collection consists of clippings, correspondence, scrapbooks and other materials relating to the musical career of Ivan
Andreevich Kolchin. Kolchin was a noted church choir director in Kazan', Russia, Harbin and Shanghai, China, and San Francisco,
California, as well as director of a Russian male vocal ensemble and music instructor. His performances drew large audiences
and he was considered one of the preeminent émigré conductors.
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. A transfer table indicating corresponding box and reel numbers is available
at the Hoover Institution Archives.
The Hoover Institution assumes all responsibility for notifying users that they must comply with the copyright law of the
