Scope and Content

Most of the collection consists of letters to Golśteĭn; there are some as well to her second husband, Vladimir A. Golśhteĭn. The materials reflect Golśhteĭn's ties to Russian liberalism and populism and also to both French and Russian art and literature. There are groups of cataloged letters from Renʹe Arcos (15), Mykhaĭlo Drahomaniv (52), Andrʹe Fontainas (31), Renʹe Ghil (32), Vi︠a︡cheslav Ivanov (17), Petr Lavrov (49), Vladimir Vernadskiĭ (20), and Maksimili︠a︡n Voloshin (29). There are also items by Jurgis Baltrušaitis, Henri Martin Barzun, Henri Bergson, Ivan Bunin, Sergeĭ Di︠a︡gilev, Paul Fort, Vladislav Khodasevich, Aristide Maillol, and Odilon Redon. Manuscripts are chiefly by Golśhteĭn, and include her memoirs on Drahomaniv. There are also poems by Voloshin and by Konstantin Balḿont. Subject files deal with such topics as the Russian famine of 1891-92 and the Russian Liberation Committee at the time of the Civil War. There is a copy of Golśhteĭn's book, "Serf Life in Russia."
