Series 4. Janice Ross book, etc.

Scope and Contents

Material assembled by Ross for her book "Like a Bomb Going Off." The majority are secondary sources sent by various people, including members of the Yakobson family. Many documents are in Russian, and some have been partially or fully translated into English. These were unfoldered for the most part, and the original order has been retained (i.e. mailers and envelopes with their contents). There are two folders of scans and photocopies of Yakobson correspondence, many articles about him, and a listing of his library. Also included are transcripts of Ross's original interviews.
