Description

Summary

The collection consists of correspondence, manuscripts, memoirs, minutes of meetings, documents, maps, photographs, and printed materials, mostly relating to World War I. Correspondence, mostly to Owie, includes a letter from Grand Duke Gavriĭl Konstantinovich. Memoirs are by Sergeĭ Konoplev concerning World War I, and manuscripts appear to be by Owie on the war and anti-Communist topics. Minutes are from the Society of Officers of the 3rd Infantry Regiment of the Life Guard (Leĭb-Gvardiĭ 3-iĭ strelkovyĭ polk). Maps, documents, and photographs deal mostly with Owie's service during World War I. Among the photographs is one of Nicholas II from 1913.
