Description

Scope and Content

The papers consist of correspondence, manuscripts, subject files, and printed materials. Correspondence includes letters by Vladimir Kokovt︠s︡ov, and letters concerning the posthumous publication of Kryzhanovskiĭ's memoirs. Manuscripts include drafts of these memoirs and other items by Kryzhanovskiĭ. There are also manuscripts, chiefly memoirs, by other persons; most were evidently sent to Kryzhanovskiĭ as editor of the emigre journal "Russkai︠a︡ Letopis"́ in the 1920s, but were never published. They deal with such topics as the Imperial police and government and the 1917 Revolution and the Civil War. There is a large group of manuscripts and related printed items, evidently prepared by Kryzhanovskiĭ, on the projected governmental system of a post-Bolshevik Russia. Subject files deal with the 1917 Revolution, emigre monarchism, and other topics.
