Scope and Content Note

This collection contains the records of the Federation of Russian Charitable Organizations, whose primary purpose was to assist in the immigration of Russian displaced persons from the Far East and Europe to the United States and Australia following the Second World War. The collection was originally arranged by the organization's director, Anatolii Stefanovich Loukashkin, and his classification has been retained. The records include the organization's predecessors and affiliates, e.g. The Committee of Russian Charitable Organizations of Northern California, Russian Orthodox Churches Relief Fund, and Russko-Amerikanskii soiuz zashchity i pomoshchi russkim vne Rossii (aka Russian-American Union).
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.
