Description

Scope and Contents

The collection includes typed and handwritten manuscripts, charts, and related materials on life in the Soviet Union which were commissioned by the Research Program on the USSR between 1950 and 1955. Some of these manuscripts were published by the RP-USSR; the majority of these publications are included in the collection as well. The authors of these works were émigré Soviet intellectuals living in the United States and Europe. As such, the majority of the materials are in Russian, with some English materials (often translated from Russian), and a few items in Ukrainian and German.

Its aim was to produce primary sources about life in the Soviet Union while also offering financial support to émigrés.
