Writings, photographs, and miscellany, relating mainly to the medical profession in Russia prior to the Russian Revolution.
M. I. Retivov was educated as a doctor. He served in various positions of responsibility prior to the Revolution: as director of the medical section of the Khar'kov workers' disability insurance company, as an organizer of sanatoria for tuberculosis patients in South Russia and the Caucasus, and as vice-president of the Pirogov medical conventions held in Moscow, St. Petersburg and Novocherkassk. Many of his writings are of an autobiographical character and describe his own life as a medical student as well as meetings with other members of the medical profession in pre-Revolutionary Russia.
