Biography

Nikolai Petrovich Kalugin was born in Khabarovsk on 17 February 1902. He graduated from the Kharbinskii Politekhnicheskii Institut as a civil engineer in 1924, and worked in that capacity for the Technical Department of the Chinese Eastern Railway until 1935. From 1935 to 1947, he headed his own engineering and contracting firm in Harbin, working on some of the larger construction projects in the city at that time. He also worked in the Philippines in this period. In 1941 he was elected president of the Society of Engineers in Manchuria, and from 1948-1953 lectured at the Kharbinskii Politekhnicheskii Institut.
Kalugin arrived in Brazil in 1954, working for Morrison Knudsen on the Itutinga Power Project, but ultimately received a visa for the United States (1958), where he remained until his death in San Francisco on 24 November 1987. He was devoted to his alma mater, the Harbin Polytechnic Institute, and collected many materials on it, including photographs and a run of the journal issued by its graduates abroad, Politekhnik, which also carried a number of articles written by Kalugin himself.

Scope and Content Note

The bulk of this collection deals with Russians in Manchuria and particularly Harbin in the 1920s-1940s. N. P. Kalugin was an engineer, and his papers contain significant information on the Russko-kitaiskii politekhnicheskii institut, later the Harbin Polytechnic Institute (Kharbinskii politekhnicheskii institut), including a complete run of the periodical Politekhnik, issued by its alumni association in Australia, and collected after his death by Kalugin's son, Nikolai.
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.
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.
