Correspondence, reports, memoranda, orders, and affidavits, relating to administration of military justice in the Armed Forces
of Southern Russia, Russian emigres in Bulgaria, the political situation in Bulgaria, and the composition and distribution
of the First Army Corps and the Don Corps
This record group, together with the records of the Chief of Supply of the Russian Army (Nachal'nik Snabzheniia Russkoi Armii),
were previously accessioned at the Hoover Institution as the F. F. Abramoff collection. Both groups of records at one point
were in the possession of General Abramoff, who commanded the Don Army Corps in Bulgaria, but he was not the originator of
the records themselves. The records of the Justice Department of the Russian Army and its subordinate agencies were originally
assembled by General I. A. Ronzhin, the Chief Prosecutor of the Russian Army and Navy and the principal executive officer
of the Department. After General Wrangel's Russian Army evacuated the Crimea in 1920, the Justice Department was ultimately
relocated in Bulgaria, where both the First Army Corps, under General Kutepov, and the Don Army Corps, under General Abramoff,
were billeted. General Abramoff probably assumed possession of the files of the defunct Justice Department after many of the
Russian Army organizations and offices disintegrated in 1926-1927 because of an acute shortage of funds.
