The newspapers in this collection were originally collected by the Hoover Institution Library and transferred to the Archives
in 2019. The Russia newspaper collection (1876-2013) comprises nine-hundred and thirty-nine unique titles of publication in
Russian, Armenian, Ukrainian, English, French, German, Kazakh, Ruthenian, Kalmyk, Georgian, Turkmen, Yiddish, Tatar and Uzbek.
The collection includes Russian émigré newspapers and periodicals, for which local subjects have been created. Some titles
also exist on microfilm. Information about microfilm availability as well as further analyzed title information can be found
in Stanford University Libraries catalog.
The Hoover Institution's collecting history regarding newspapers spans over 80 years. Newspapers became an integral core component
of the "Hoover War Collection" soon after it was established in 1919 as a repository of materials on World War I and the states
and societies involved in it. The subsequent widening of focus to cover the themes of "War, Revolution, and Peace" caused
the collection to grow further in scope and volume into a variety of directions.
