    Historical Note

    This collection was created by Baroness Mariia Vrangel', mother of Baron Petr Nikolaevich Vrangel', last commander of the White Army, as a memorial to the cultural, academic and social contributions of the so-called first Russian emigration. This group was formed by individuals who emigrated from Russia after the defeat of the White Movement in the early 1920's and included many prominent representatives of the cultural and political elite of Imperial Russia. The collection incorporates a great variety of material, including biographical information which Baroness Vrangel' solicited from individuals as well as organizatons active in the emigre community, personal correspondence, short biographies and autobiographies, memoirs, original and printed works as well as photographs. There is also a large volume of clippings from the contemporary emigre press. The collection consists of two parts, the first is arranged by the profession or field of activity of an individual or organization. This includes writers, artists and academics as well as social and professional organizations. The second is arranged by geographical location and includes material about emigre communities scattered around the globe.
