    Scope and Content Note

    This collection contains the correspondence and office file of the Russkoe sel'sko-khoziaistvennoe obshchestvo (Russian Agricultural Union of North America). Of particular interest are the issues of its bulletins, including the file of unpublished article drafts, which illustrate the breadth of its members' interests and activities. The correspondence is also a significant resource for the study of the contributions of Russian émigré agronomists and engineers to American and Canadian agricultural production and food processing (particularly grain, dairy products and spirits).
    The correspondence is largely between the organization's founder, Petr Filaretovich Konstantinov, and its members, including V. M. Benzin, I. V. Emelianov, I. K. Okulich, M. T. Zarotschenzeff and others.
    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 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.
    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.
