Manuscripts, documents, photographs and printed materials of Georgiĭ A. Teslavskiĭ. Teslavskiĭ's manuscripts include a three-volume autobiographical novel entitled "Burelom" that chiefly deals with the 1917 Revolution and the Northwestern front during the Civil War. "Vospominanii︠a︡" discusses Teslavskiĭ's education, military service during World War I and the Civil War and emigration to Argentina. Among the documents is a certificate issued to Teslavskiĭ's grandfather during the reign of Aleksandr II. There are four photographs of Teslavskiĭ, a few caricatures of Russian army officers and members of the Semenov chorus in Warsaw, 1943, and copies of "Sei︠a︡tel"́ and "Smena" periodicals published by the emigre community in Buenos Aires.
