Scope and Content Note

N. N. Lebedev was active in several Russian organizations in San Francisco from the 1940s to the 1970s, particularly in the Russian Benevolent Trust Fund in Memory of V. P. and M. P. Anitchkoff, of which he was treasurer during the entire period of its existence (1947-1979). This organization aided recent Russian immigrants, especially those arriving from China following the Second World War, and Lebedev's papers reflect its activities in this respect. The SUBJECT FILE also contains a small amount of material relating to N. N. and A. I. Lebedev's participation in social and cultural organizations such as the Russian Women's Home of Mercy (1940s) and Den' russkogo rebenka celebrations in San Francisco in the 1970s.
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.
