The collection consists of correspondence, manuscripts of her diary, published under the title "Dnevnik, 1899-1906" (New York, 1951), documents (primarily personal), photographs chiefly taken in Manchuria at the turn of the century, and printed materials, especially clippings. The clippings include articles by Rossolimo, articles about her and members of her family, and about subjects of interest to her. The correspondence spans the years 1845-1952 but concentrates around 1951, the year of the publication of "Dnevnik, 1899-1906." Among the correspondents are Georgiĭ V. Adamovich, Vera N. Bunina, Anton and Ksenii︠a︡ Denikin, Georgiĭ P. Fedotov, Vasiliĭ A. Maklakov, among others. The diary raises issues of feminism and describes in detail the life of Russians in Manchuria, especially during the Russo-Japanese War.
