    Scope and Content

There is a detailed collection of printed matter related to the Russian author, Alekseĭ Remizov, including photocopies of his writings. Finally, there is a substantial amount of material dealing with the "Stundist" Movement in the Ukraine and the U.S., including accounts of religious persecution in the U.S.S.R.
