Description

Scope and Content

The collection includes correspondence, memoirs, organizational records, and printed materials. The correspondence -- which covers the 1923-1963 period -- concerns the activities of a number of emigre Cossack groups, scout groups and anti-Communist organizations throughout Europe, Canada and the United States. There is a two volume memoir written by P.P. Cherepanov, a member of the Tiflis Cadet Corps. The organizational records include accounts, membership lists, poems and songs, protocols and receipts, chiefly for the Tiflis Cadet Corps. Among the printed materials are issues of emigre and Cossack publications (such as "Bodrost,́" "Mikhaĭlovt︠s︡y" and "Rodimyĭ kraĭ") and ten folders of clippings about Cossack events and members. One of the scrapbooks contains guest lists of various events, clippings and photographs (including photographs from the filming of a 1920s production of "Khadzhi Murat"), while the other scrapbook has records of Cossack events and a number of original watercolors.
