    Biographical Note

    Dmitriĭ Aleksandrovich Levchik, a Russian political analyst and consultant based in Moscow, was involved in establishing independent trade unions and independent political and trade union publications during and immediately after the collapse of the Soviet system.

    Scope and Content of Collection

    The papers of Dmitriĭ Aleksandrovich Levchik consist of writings, correspondence, reports, memoranda, notes, election campaign literature, and other printed matter relating to political conditions and election campaigns in Russia, activities of the Sot͡sial-demokraticheskai͡a Partii͡a Rossiĭskoĭ Federat͡sii, and organization of independent miners' trade unions in Russia.
    An increment acquired in 2013 contains communist political materials concerning post-1991 election campaigns and the political activities of leftist groups in the Russian Federation. Particularly notable are letters to the editor of Pravda from the mid-1990s. Ranging from requests for information on the condition of Lenin's mausoleum and its security to proposals for breathing new life into the communist idea, these letters, which came from throughout the former USSR and as far away as Greece, illustrate the worldviews of communist believers whose dreams were punctured by the collapse of the USSR.
    The original folder titles given by the creator have been maintained. Within individual folders, materials have been kept in their original order as accumulated by the creator.
