Scope and Content Note
The papers of Ivan Alekseevich Kurganov, acquired in 2001, consist of correspondence, published and unpublished writings,
including manuscripts of books and articles, reports, and memoranda. These materials document the political and intellectual
life of Professor Kurganov and his contemporaries from the early 1950s through the late 1970s. Kurganov's associates included
well-known Russian émigrés such as Sergei P. Mel'gunov, Mikhail Karpovich, V. Orekhov, Vladmir Samarin, and many others. The
most important correspondent was Alexander Kerensky.
After World War II, Kurganov worked as a journalist for the Russian émigré press. His work as a journalist is reflected in
the speeches and writings series. Between the years 1959 and 1980 Professor Kurganov published several books, and many articles
and pamphlets, also included in the series.
Included in the Kurganov collection are the records of the Coordinating Center of Anti-Bolshevik Struggle (Munich), which
sought to unify the political activities of various anti-Soviet Russian émigré organizations. From 1951 to 1956, Professor
Kurganov held a leading position in and later presided over the Center. During this time, he worked closely with Alexander
Kerensky and Sergei P. Mel'gunov. The records of the Coordinating Center provide a wealth of information on anti-Soviet activities
in the Russian émigré community during the 1950s. Of great interest are Alexander Kerensky's letters on his anti-Soviet political
activities, relations with a new generation of Russian émigrés (displaced persons), and his stance on many other issues.
