The collection consists of correspondence and manuscripts. The correspondence, both incoming and outgoing (copies), spans the years 1921-1938, and includes both personal and official letters as well as such ancillary materials as financial accounts, reports, clippings, circulars, etc. It deals with the activities of the White army at the end of the Civil War (Crimea, Gallipoli, Bulgaria) and with the policies and programs of the Russkiĭ Obshche-Voinskiĭ Soiuz (ROVS) in the emigration. The manuscripts are in the form of memoirs, both General Shatilov's and his wife's; there is also a memoir by an unidentified author. There are two copies of General Shatilov's 2,000 page manuscript. In it he recounts his childhood and military education, his participation in the Russo-Japanese War, and his role in World War I, the Civil War, and subsequently in the emigration in Europe, through World War II.
