Scope and Content
This collection consists of the personal papers, correspondence, speeches and writings and collected materials of Iosif K.
It contains materials pertaining to the development of Russian agriculture and the cooperative movement in Siberia (particularly
in the first half of the 20th century), to the Russian Civil War in Siberia and the Far East, and to the resettlement of émigré
Cossacks from China and Europe to Canada in the 1920s-1940s. Also significant are Okulich's articles and collected information
about political developments in the Soviet Union and about the Slav question in the 1920s-1940s, and his involvement in émigré
life and undertakings, as reflected in correspondence with well-known émigré figures, and support for a number of émigré causes,
including the establishment of the Russkoe sel'sko-khoziaistvennoe obshchestvo and Museum of Russian Culture in San Francisco.
Materials relating to family members who are better known under the anglicized surname Okulitch have retained this spelling.
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 and copyright to them (with
some exceptions) are the property of the Museum of Russian Culture, San Francisco. A transfer table indicating corresponding
box and reel numbers is available at the Hoover Institution Archives.
