    Scope and Content

    This collection consists of the papers of Leonid Kutukov, an officer in the Leib-Gvardii Moskovskii Polk (Moscow Life Guards Regiment) who emigrated to France after the Revolution and remained active in regimental activities abroad. The most important part consists of material related to the history of this regiment, especially during WWI and the Civil War. Of special interest are holograph and typescript eyewitness accounts by officers of the regiment re events during the early days of the revolution. This material was used by Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn in preparation for his multi-volume historical novel The Red Wheel. The collection contains a letter from the author to Leonid Kutukov in the WRITINGS FILE.
    Also of interest is material related to right wing and monarchist circles in the emigration, including issues of Parizhskii Vestnik, published during the German occupation of Paris, 1942-1944.
    Finally the collection contains the writings of Leonid Kutukov, mostly published in the journal Chasovoi, and miscellaneous material re the singing career of his wife, Sophia Kolomeitseva-Kutukova.
