Scope and Content Note
This collection contains individual holographs and typescripts (with occasional associated correspondence) donated either
directly to the Museum or submitted to
Russkaia zhizn' and subsequently deposited in the Museum. Most of the materials are in Russian or English, and include fiction, memoirs,
and article- or book-length studies on historical, political, or social themes. The earliest manuscripts, though undated,
are Nestor Kukol'nik's "Tolkovanie Evangeliia," and a series of lives of Russian saints (unidentified author), followed by
Archbishop Nikolai of Japan's (Nikolai Kasatkin) "Iaponiia s tochki zreniia Khristianskoi missii" (1869).
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.
The Hoover Institution assumes all responsibility for notifying users that they must comply with the copyright law of the
United States (Title 17 United States Code) and Hoover Rules for the Use and Reproduction of Archival Materials.
