Scope and Content
The papers contain correspondence, reports, and financial records. The materials almost entirely date from 1919-22 and concern the Civil War and its immediate aftermath. There are several letters from General Nikolaĭ I︠U︡denich to Pilkin, and many letters and reports which passed between Pilkin and his assistants. The majority of the collection is made up of financial records, such as income and disbursements for the "Morskai︠a︡ organizat︠s︡ii︠a︡" in Paris (1919-22), and the "Morskoĭ fond" in Helsinski (1920-24); and subsidies disbursed to White naval personnel living in Estonia (1920-23).
