Scope and Content of Collection

These papers contain the correspondence and some writings of Ivan Mikhailovich Andreevskii (pen-name: I. M. Andreev), a prominent writer in the Russian emigration in the U.S., and formerly interred in the Solovetsk concentration camp from 1927-1932. In emigration, Andreevskii settled in the U.S., teaching various subjects at Holy Trinity Orthodox Seminary and editing several publications. These papers reflect only a fragment of Andreevskii's activities and writings. Among his Speeches and Writings, included in this collection, are writings on pedagogy and psychology, as well as catacomb Orthodox communities in the U.S.S.R.
