Scope and Content Note

The Society of Russian Engineers (Russkii inzhenernyi kruzhok) was originally established in Los Angeles in 1924, and reorganized in 1975 as the Russko-amerikanskoe kul'turno-prosvetitel'noe obshchestvo (Russian-American Cultural Society). The materials in this collection reflect the activities of this organization (lectures, concerts and other social events), and include correspondence, flyers, founding and liquidation documents, membership lists, minutes of meetings, and similar matter.
Detailed processing and preservation microfilming for these materials were made possible by a generous grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities and by matching funds from the Hoover Institution and Museum of Russian Culture. The grant also provides depositing a microfilm copy in the Hoover Institution Library & Archives. The original materials remain in the Museum of Russian Culture, San Francisco as its property. A transfer table indicating corresponding box and reel numbers is available at the Hoover Institution Library & Archives.
