Scope and content
Records of the Harvard University Russian Research Center's Project on the Soviet Social System. This project interviewed Soviet emigres on a broad range of topics. The records consist of mimeographed typescripts of these interviews. They are divided into two major categories: "personal life history documents" (A schedules); and interviews on economics, family, government, nationalities, wartime occupations, partisan movements, professions, and stratification. There are also clinical interviews, copies of questionnaires, and an interviewer's guide.
