At a Glance
The collection consists of Skorino's correspondence, manuscripts, documents, photographs, printed materials and drawings. The correspondence, primarily from the late 1940s through the early 1960s, is chiefly of a personal nature as are the documents. The manuscripts, photographs, and printed materials pertain in large measure to the activities of the Egerskiĭ Polk, its veterans' organization in Belgium, and to other military veterans' organizations in exile. Of particular note are two dozen glass negatives of photographs of Russian military life in the World War I era.
