Scope and Content
Papers consist of correspondence, manuscripts, documents, photographs, subject files, and printed materials. Malamuth translated such works as Trotsky's "Stalin" and Valentin Kataev's "Kvadratura kruga." After World War II, he worked successively for the American Joint Distribution Committee in Europe and the Middle East, the Voice of America, and Radio Liberty. These papers reflect many aspects of Malamuth's career. Among the correspondents are Max Eastman, Eugene Lyons, Adolphe Menjou, and Lev Trotsky. There are one or two items each from Ili︠́a︡ Erenburg, Evengiĭ Kataev, Anatoliĭ Lunacharskiĭ, Alekseĭ Tolstoĭ, and Evgeniĭ Zami︠a︡tin. Manuscripts include a signed typescript of Boris Pilńi︠a︡k's "Volga vpadaet v Kaspiĭskoe more," a film scenario by Viktor Shklovskiĭ, and plays by I︠U︡riĭ Olesha, Tolstoĭ, and Zami︠a︡tin. There are photographs of David Ben-Gurion, Bela Kun, Lev Kamenev, Vladimir Lenin, and Grigoriĭ Zinovév. There are also photographs from Soviet Russia ca. 1920, and some about the resettlement of the Adenese Jews to Israel. Subject files deal with the publication of Trotsky's "Stalin," the American Joint Distribution Committee, the Voice of America, and Radio Liberty.
