    Scope and Content Note

    A. S. Loukashkin was a biologist and the director of the Muzei Obshchestva izucheniia Man'chzhurskogo kraia in Harbin, China, and the Museum of Russian Culture in San Francisco, California. He also served on the boards of the Russian Center and Russian Life Corporation, which published the newspaper Russkaia zhizn' (San Francisco, California); two series so named reflect his activities in these organizations. The collection contains a small number of Loukashkin's scientific writings and a large quantity of collected materials on a variety of subjects, primarily Russians in China, the United States, and other countries. The PRINTED MATTER series contains rare issues of Russian émigré periodicals, especially those published in China.
    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.
