This collection contains materials relating mainly to the anti-Communist activities of A. M. Naidenov, an émigré from the Soviet Union. The biographical file reflects his campaign to acquire U. S. citizenship. The correspondence and his main written work, "What Is the Communist Threat?," reflect his views on the international political situation and the struggle against Communism.

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.
