    Historical Note

    This collection was created by Baronessa Marii͡a 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 1920s and included many prominent representatives of the cultural and political elite of Imperial Russia.

    Scope and Content of Collection

    Correspondence, writings, memoirs, biographical material, pamphlets, periodicals, newspapers, photographs, clippings, and printed matter relating to Russian émigré activities following the Russian Revolution and Civil War, including political, military, veterans', religious, educational, cultural, literary, artistic, and social activities. Includes a few papers of M. D. Vrangel'.
    The collection incorporates a great variety of material, including biographical information which Baronessa Vrangel' solicited from individuals, as well as organizations active in the émigré 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 émigré 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 émigré communities scattered around the globe.
