Scope and Content Note
Mikhail Trofimovich Zarochentsev (Zarotschenzeff) was a specialist in meat and fish refrigeration, a prolific inventor in
the field and holder of a number of patents on methods of quick-freezing. The CAREER FILE contains information related to
Zarochentsev's scientific work (notes, reports and calculations) and business activities, including his meat-packing operations:
A/S "Külmetus"(Estonia), American Z Corporation, National Frosted Foods Sales Corp. and Z-Pack Corporation. It also includes
articles, notes, patents, and promotional materials relating to the "Z" process of quick-freezing and related refrigeration
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.
