Biography

A. M. Naidenov was born in Moscow on 30 June 1896. After graduation from the Moscow Commercial Institute in 1917, he worked in the Soviet Union as an economist in various organizations, including "Azneft'" and the People's
Commissariat of Light Industry of the Azerbaidzhan S.S.R., where he was a planner for ten years. This experience led him to author a study entitled Administration of Azerbaijani Industry, published by the Research Studies Institute of the Air University in 1952.
Escaping the USSR during the Second World War (1944), he moved to the United States in 1949, working as a draftsman in New York in addition to engaging in anti-Communist activities as a journalist and an announcer for the Voice of America. Most of his writings and correspondence are concerned with problems of anti-communism. Naidenov died in San Francisco in September 1972.

Scope and Content Note

This collection contains materials relating mainly to the anti-Communist activities of A. M. Naidenov, an émigré from the Soviet Union. The biographical file reflects his campaign to acquire U. S. citizenship. The correspondence and his main written work, "What Is the Communist Threat?," reflect his views on the international political situation and the struggle against Communism.
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 the 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.
The Hoover Institution assumes all responsibility for notifying users that they must comply with the copyright law of the United States (Title 17 United States Code) and Hoover Rules for the Use and Reproduction of Archival Materials.
