Description

Summary

Correspondence, manuscripts, diaries, documents, subject files and printed materials of Vorobév. Following the 1917 Revolution, Vorobév emigrated to Constantinople, Belgrade, and eventually to Nice. The correspondence dates from 1920 to 1950. The manuscripts primarily concern ethnography, agriculture and horticulture in the Black Sea region, and approximately half the manuscripts are by Vorobév himself. In addition, there are several diaries (dating from the 1940's) in which Vorobév recorded his professional activities. The documents include a number of contracts and receipts. The subject files cover a variety of topics including antisemitism, flora in the Kuban River region, notes on the "dance of death" and the Obshchestvo okhranenii︠a︡ russkikh kult́urnykh t︠s︡ennosteĭ (the Society for the Preservation of Russian Cultural Antiquity) in Paris, of which Vorobév was secretary. Among the printed materials are articles, clippings and maps.
