Scope and Content Note

Timofei Fedotovich Tokarev was a treasurer and vice-president of numerous Russian émigré organizations in San Francisco, including the Museum of Russian Culture, Russian Center, the Ob"edinennyi komitet russkikh natsional'nykh organizatsii v g. San Frantsisko (Consolidated Committee of the Russian National Organizations of San Francisco), the Russian Benevolent Trust Fund in Memory of V. P. and M. P. Anitchkoff, and Russkii Dom Sviatogo Vladimira. This collection consists mainly of material related to his work in these organizations. It is not clear how the papers of the Sedykh family and Fedor Semenov have found their way into this collection.
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.
