Elizabeth Malozemoff was born in St. Petersburg, Russia, on 26 July 1881. Emigrating to California after the Russian Revolution, she received a full education at the University of California at Berkeley, culminating with a Ph. D. in Russian literature in 1938.
She corresponded with a large number of émigré writers, including Aleksandr Otsup (Sergei Gornyi), Dmitrii Klenovskii, Rodion Berezov, Irina Saburova, and Aleksei Remizov. In addition to this collection, the researcher may also wish to consult Malozemoff's oral history interview, part of the Russian émigré project administered by the Regional Oral History Office of the University of California at Berkeley. Malozemoff's sons Andrew and Plato also achieved prominence: the first as a historian and the second as a mining engineer and chief executive of Newmont Mining Corporation. Elizabeth Malozemoff died in New York state in April 1974.

Scope and Content Note

The most significant materials in this collection are contained in the correspondence file, particularly the correspondence with émigré Russian writers such as Nina Fedorova (Riasanovsky) and Nikolai Narokov. Writings by and clippings about two prominent émigrés, Anna Mazurova and Sergei Gornyi, have been placed in the subject file under their names.
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 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 Archives.
