Having been evacuated from Novorossiisk, Khitrovo became chief of the Russian press bureau in Constantinople and subsequently immigrated to France. He was active in the alumni association of the Pazheskii korpus and the Soiuz pazhei. He was a contributor to the journal Voennaia byl' and authored an unpublished memoir of World War I, "Vospominaniia i materialy dlia istorii. Leib-gvardii konnaia artilleriia. Chast' II-aia. Voina 1914-1917. Pokhod v vostochnuiu Prussiiu."

Scope and Content of Collection

These papers contain the correspondence and writings of Vladimir Sergeevich Khitrovo, a graduate of the Pazheskii korpus and participant of World War I and member of the White Army. In emigration, Khitrovo was active in the alumni association of the Pazheskii korpus, the Soiuz pazhei, which is reflected in a number of organizational files of this association, including bylaws, correspondence, and lists of members within the Subject file. Of particular interest is Khitrovo's unpublished memoir of World War I, "Vospominaniia i materialy dlia istorii. Leib-gvardii konnaia artilleriia. Chast' II-aia. Voina 1914-1917. Pokhod v vostochnuiu Prussiiu," which include numerous original photographs.
