Scope and Content
I︠A︡lyshev's memoirs deal with his student days in Kiev at the turn of the century, including unrest in 1900, and with the Russo-Japanese war. There are two manuscripts by A.A. Vishnevskiĭ, one on the White Army of General Bulak-Balakhovich in Poland in 1920, the other on the "Ukrainian question" in the 1920s. Subject files concern the Brat︠s︡tvo Sv. Nikolai︠a︡ (Brotherhood of St. Nicholas) in Istanbul in the early 1920s, of which I︠A︡lyshev was the president; the refugee camp of "Victor Hugo" near Marseilles in the mid-1920s; and the Obʺedinenie XVIII-go Armeĭskago Korpusa (Union of the 18th Army Corps) in the 1920s and 1930s.
