Scope and Content Note
Iurii Miroliubov was a chemist, journalist, poet and writer with an interest in ancient Russian folklore. He is best known
for his attempts to synthesize a new history of pre-historic Russia in a series of books and articles, many of which were
based on the forgery known as "Vlesova kniga," which he helped promulgate as editor of the journal
Zhar-ptitsa. Materials relating to this forgery can be found among his writings as well as in the subject file. Other materials of interest
are his reminiscences of the Russian colony in Belgium during the German occupation (1939-1945), numerous newspaper columns,
many of which deal with émigré political and social life in post-World War II Belgium, and short stories, some of which were
compiled and published under the titles
Babushkin sunduk and
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.
