Scope and Content Note

Ol'ga Tissarevskaia was a painter and journalist active in the Russian émigré press; she was noted primarily for her accounts of travel to exotic locales.

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.
