    Scope and Content of Collection

    The Kuroki Chikayoshi papers contain correspondence, reports, and printed matter related to gold allegedly transferred to Kuroki by Cossack ataman Grigorii Semenov.
    Kuroki was a military officer who joined the Russian Army in World War I. He acted as a military advisor to pro-Japanese leader of the White movement Grigorii Semenov. He was also close to Japanese general Araki Sadao and played an important role in Kōdōha (Imperial Way Faction)—a political faction that aimed to establish a military government in Japan in the 1920s and 1930s.
    Grigorii Semenov, also known as Grigory Mikhaylovich Semenov (Григо́рий Миха́йлович Семёнов; 1890 –1946), was a Japanese-supported leader of the White movement in Transbaikal and its surrounding area from December 1917 to November 1920 and lieutenant general and Ataman of Baikal Cossacks (1919).
