Scope and Content

The collection consists of correspondence, manuscripts, documents, photographs, subject files and printed material. The correspondence is primarily from the 1920s and includes letters from Georgiĭ E. Lv́ov and Sergeĭ P. Melǵunov and one or two items each from Mark A. Aldanov, Ivan A. Bunin, Nikolaĭ V. Chaĭkovskiĭ, Aleksandra L. Tolstai︠a︡, Vladimir F. Zeeler and others. The manuscripts are primarily in the form of notes in Polner's hand and include Polner's diary from the years 1919-1925. The documents belong to Tikhon Polner's brother, Sergeĭ, and deal with the latter's expulsion from the USSR in 1921. There is extensive material in the subject files on the writings of Lev Tolstoĭ, including typescript copies of several Tolstoĭ manuscripts and clippings of the reviews of Polner's book on Tolstoĭ. Also included is a photograph of Alexander Herzen from the 1850s.
