Scope and Content Note
This collection is a compilation of papers of individual persons or organizations that were too small in volume to be accessioned
separately. The Petr Mikhailov papers contain the oldest materials, dating from the second half of the 19
th century, although the Agapii Goncharenko collection, consisting primarily of later clippings, also refers to this period,
Goncharenko being a pioneer of the Russian-language press in America. Most of the papers are of a biographical or genealogical
nature, although there is also a folder of documents relating to the Society of Russian Engineers and Technicians on the Island
of Cyprus (Obshchestvo russkikh inzhenerov i tekhnikov na o. Kipr).
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.
