History / Biographical Note
Papers collected by Roman G. Mi︠a︡gkov, primarily concerning several Imperial military units, consisting of correspondence, documents, photographs, subject files, printed materials, money, and military memorabilia. There are photographs and picture postcards of the Imperial family, of soldiers (ca. 1890-1936), and of military reunions in exile. Units which turn up include the Caucasus Grenadiers Artillery Brigade, the Ninth Kiev Hussars, the Mikhaĭlov Artillery School, and the Tiflis Cadet Corps. Memorabilia include medals, ribbons, shoulder-boards, a red-blue-white Russian national flag, and guidons of the Ninth Kiev Hussars. There is also a painted icon (ca. 1920). Money includes an 1837 1 1/2 silver ruble piece, and a 1613-1913 Romanov commemorative coin, plus paper money.
