Colorado (CO) The Sidney Heitman Germans from Russia Collection Colorado State University Fort Collins CO 80523

Sidney Heitman, ed., German Russians in Colorado (Ann Arbor: University Microfilms International, 1978). Online finding aid available:

A number of online digital projects have taken on the challenge of documenting the experiences of immigrants and this particular website deals with this very subject quite nicely. Through the use of primary documents and detailed oral histories, this website illustrates the experiences of Germans from Russia who immigrated to Colorado in the 19th and 20th centuries. Drawing on work done by Professor Heitman at Colorado State University in the 1970s, visitors to the site can examine transcripts and listen to audio excerpts of interviews of these immigrants (and their descendants). They may also wish to view the online photo gallery which contains images of agriculture work, German-inspired architecture, and home life. Finally, visitors can use a search engine offered here to look for specific materials, if they wish to do so. This research center has a collection of materials, both published and unpublished, pertaining to the Germans from Russia (sometimes erroneously called the "Volga Germans"). Unpublished materials include statistical data; a small amount of correspondence; and taped and transcribed oral interviews of Germans who emigrated from Russia. These interviews relate in part to conditions in Russia and to reasons for emigrating to the United States. A new and growing component of the collection consists of statistical and documentary material pertaining to the history of the German Russians under Soviet rule.

District Of Columbia (DC) American Folklife Center Library of Congress 10 First Street SE
Washington DC 20540

Holdings concern primarily folklife and ethnic groups in the United States. Among its collections is the Chicago Ethnic Arts Project Collection of 335 sound recordings, ca. 3,700 color transparencies, black and white negatives representing ca. 300 rolls of film, field notes, and other written documentation, 1977. Information came from ethnic community leaders and artists. Among the ethnic groups whose music, dancing, and crafts were examined to note the impact of urban America were Lithuanians and Ukrainians. In general, these materials and other collections generated by the work of the Center will eventually go to the appropriate custodial branches of the Library of Congress.

District Of Columbia (DC) Archive of Folk Song Library of Congress 10 First Street SE
Washington DC 20540

Holdings include textual material, both printed and unpublished, and noncommercial recordings and tapes. There are materials pertaining to Russia, Russian-Americans, Armenians, Estonians, Lithuanians, Boshkirs (Bashkirs?), Russians in Alaska ca. 1808, Ukrainians, Laplanders, Mongolians, and Molokans.

District Of Columbia (DC) European Division Library of Congress The European Reading Room
Thomas Jefferson Bldg, Room LJ-249
101 Independence Ave, SE
Washington DC 20540

Manuscript materials in the Division have not been thoroughly processed. A brief examination of holdings revealed: ca. 46 scrolls from the 17th and 18th c; some original ukazy of Empress Anna Ivanovna, 1730s, a few with her autograph; draft of a law code prepared for Alexander I by the State Council, 1813–14; a number of photo albums with pictures of the Imperial family; reports and material relating to the White government at Omsk in the Civil War; material on the murder of the Imperial family at Ekaterinburg; Russian legal and political material, 39 files, pertaining to the legislative and other activities of the preKolchak and Kolchak governments in 1918–19 and to Kolchak himself; and the Iakhontov papers. The letter include not only the final printed texts of minutes of the debates in the Council of Ministers in 1914 but also Iakhontov's pencil notes on the discussions. These papers shed much light on Russian politics, particularly the question of Polish autonomy.

District Of Columbia (DC) Manuscript Division Library of Congress 2nd Street and Independence Avenue SE
Washington DC 20540

In addition to the finding aids mentioned above (most of which are unpublished draft "registers" that describe groups of documents in varying detail), there are also published descriptions of some holdings, including Library of Congress, Annual Report for the fiscal years 1897 to date; Library of Congress, Handbook of Manuscripts (1918) and its supplements; Library of Congress, Quarterly Journal (until 1964 the Quarterly Journal of Current Acquisitions), 1943 to date; Library of Congress, Manuscript Sources on Manuscript: A Checklist (1975). The Manuscript Division of the Library of Congress, established in 1897, contains approximately 10,000 separate collections. Among these are the papers of roughly half of the persons who served as U.S. secretary of state and of 23 presidents from George Washington to Calvin Coolidge (other presidential papers, from Hoover to Johnson, are kept in presidential libraries). References to Russia undoubtedly abound in these papers, but no attempt has been made to describe all of these in detail (see note at the end of this entry). Russian related materials in other groups of documents have been described as much as possible, mostly on the basis of available finding aids.

The following groups of documents have or may have materials pertaining to Russia or Russian-American relations:

(a) The papers of U.S. presidents, including Thomas Jefferson, Abraham Lincoln, James Madison, James Monroe, Theodore Roosevelt, and Woodrow Wilson. All these papers are on microfilm and have name indexes.

(b) The papers of U.S. secretaries of state, including Henry Clay, Bainbridge Colby, Charles Evans Hughes, Cordell Hull, Robert Lansing, and Henry Alfred Kissinger (restricted).

(c) The papers of Frederick Lewis Allen, Vannevar Bush, William E. Dodd, John William Draper, Tom Terry Connally, James John Davis, Henry P. Fletcher, Theodore Francis Green, Nelson Trusler Johnson, Jesse Holmes Jones, Peyton C. March, George Fort Milton, Charles Linza McNary, George Foster Peabody, Key Pittman, Donald Randall Richberg, Frances Bowes Sayre, Eric Arnold Sevareid, William Boyce Thompson, and Henry Agard Wallace.

Collections include the Office of War Information Collection, National Press Club Collection, United Nations Records Collection, 1946–63, and others with scattered Russian/Sovietrelated material from the early 1940s to the present. Individual items include recordings of literary figures such as Andrei Voznesensky, Evgenii Evtushenko, M. Gorkii, Valentin Kataev, and A. Solzhenitsyn; of musical composers and musicians (e.g., Gregor Piatigorsky, Sergei Rachmaninoff, and Alexander Siloti); of singers like Feodor Shaliapin; and of political leaders such as Nikita Khrushchev and V. Molotov. Unpublished recordings are too vast to attempt a representative sampling, however. There are finding aids for some of the larger collections.

The library has several thousand photographs of trees and plant specimens in Russia at the turn of the century up to the 1930s. The photos were taken by U.S. Department of Agriculture plant explorers, particularly Mr. Frank Meyer, 1906–17, and Messrs. Westover and Enlow, 1930s. Staff requests advance notice from those wishing to use the collection.

District Of Columbia (DC) National Archives and Records Service National Archives and Records Service 700 Pennsylvania Avenue, NW
Washington DC 20408

Guide to the National Archives of the United States (1974) is the most complete introduction to the materials in the National Archives. For Russian-related materials, see the guide on which much of this entry is based, Elizabeth Buck, comp., Materials in the National Archives Relating to the Russian Empire and the Soviet Union (1952) [National Archives Reference Information Paper no. 41]. This guide divides Russian-related materials by subject matter and historical periods (rather than by record groups) and could be of use to a researcher looking for information on a specific topic or event. The guide, however, is quite dated, especially on the post-World War II era. Inventories, preliminary inventories, and special lists to materials in individual record groups are mentioned in Select List of Publications of the National Archives and Records Service (revised, 1977). Microfilms of materials in the National Archives, and the publications that frequently accompany them, are listed in Catalog of National Archives Microfilm Publications (1974) and supplement (1979). Unpublished finding aids to various materials are frequently available at individual operating units of the National Archives.

The National Archives houses the records of the U.S. government and contains millions of paper documents, still pictures, maps, charts, and other materials. The great size of these holdings precludes a complete description of all their Russian-related materials.

All that has been done here, therefore, is to provide an overview of items pertaining to Russia/USSR among various National Archives record groups ("RG"). Some of these items may be widely scattered throughout a record group and may be difficult to locate. It is suggested, therefore, that researchers contact the National Archives operating unit in charge of specific record groups before attempting to examine the materials they contain. List of Record Groups of the National Archives and Records Service (October 1976, to be updated) lists which operating units (e.g., Diplomatic, Military) have responsibility for a given record group. Note: With a few exceptions, the total size and inclusive dates of record groups below are taken from the 1976 revised looseleaf edition of the Guide to the National Archives of the United States. These measurements and dates are, of course, subject to change and may be already outdated.

Restrictions: There are various restrictions to some of the materials cited above, especially for more recent items. For details, contact the National Archives or see the National Archives Guide (1974) cited below.

District Of Columbia (DC) Photographic Archives National Gallery of Art Constitution Avenue at 6th Street NW

The staff has prepared various card indexes and guides to the collections, including its "Information for Visitors to the Operational Archives" used in writing this entry.

At the start of World War II, the Office of Naval Records and Library (a predecessor of the present Naval History Division) began to collect the reports, plans, and diaries that flowed into Washington from combat naval commands. The collection formed during that war is the core of the holdings of the operational archives; its primary coverage is from 1939 to the present, although there are limited materials from earlier periods as well. Among the Russian-related sources in the archives are the following:

The Naval History Division also has copies, bound and indexed, of the Oral Histories in the collection of the U.S. Naval Institute in Annapolis, Maryland. Relevant holdings are described in the entry for the Naval Institute.

Immigration History Research Center: Guide to Manuscript Holdings (University of Minnesota, January 1976) for all the general and ethnic collections; and the IHRC Ethnic Collections Series (1976): no. 1 is The Baltic American Collection, compiled by Joseph D. Dwyer, and no. 9 is The Ukrainian American Collection, compiled by Halyna Myroniuk and Maria Samilo. (For those interested in materials on Finns and Poles, which might indirectly relate to the Russian Empire and Soviet Union, nos. 3 and 6 in this series respectively are germane.)

The Immigration History Research Center, founded in 1964 as the Center for Immigration Studies/ Immigrant Archives, has a vast and unique collection of materials on American ethnic groups originating in Eastern Europe. At present its library holds over 35,000 volumes, 4,000 reels of microfilm, and 2,500 ft. (3,000,000 items) of unpublished manuscripts. Among the groups for which the IHRC has holdings are Russians, Ukrainians, Estonians, Latvians, Lithuanians, Armenians, Byelorussians, Carpatho-Ruthenians, and Jews (also other Eastern and Southern Slavs, Poles, and Finns). Because the focus of collections is ethnic groups in America, most of the materials shed only indirect light on the respective homelands of these peoples. Even so, these collections represent major archival resources for the study of the Russian Empire and the Soviet Union.

Holdings are divided into "General Collections," which are records of agencies and individuals active in refugee resettlement, intercultural education, immigration policy, and similar work, and "Ethnic Collections," which currently cover 24 different nationalities. Collections may contain both published (usually books, newspapers, and serials) and unpublished items. Most are in the native languages but sizeable amounts are also in English.

A detailed listing of all relevant holdings would only duplicate existing published guides, which are excellent and readily available (see under Finding Aids at the end of this entry). This description will be brief, listing the names, sizes, and some further information for various collections under the individual ethnic groups and in the "General Collections."

The library also holds scattered correspondence from Russian/Soviet scientists, ca. 1900–1950, in its microfilm and manuscript collections; and a card index, the National Catalog of Sources, on physicists and astronomers, which might be useful in locating the papers of scientists who have had contacts with Russia/USSR. Restrictions: Individual oral history transcripts may have special restrictions; inquire at the library. Access to all manuscript materials and oral history interviews is restricted to persons who have completed an application for access which has been approved by Center staff.

New York NY 10027

The Bakhmeteff Archive has developed by means of gifts and purchases from a great many private individuals, including both persons who left Russia and also a number of Americans. The archive is open to qualified scholars in accordance with the policies of the Rare Book and Manuscript Library of Columbia University. A certain number of collections also have additional restrictions placed on them by their donors; these are indicated by the word "Restrictions" at the end of the collection. Interested scholars should contact the curator of the archive in advance concerning access. In addition to the listings that follow, the archive holds a great deal of Russian-related materials of an archival nature, primarily printed matter and issuances of organizations. Moreover, there are many files of rare and unusual periodicals or serials that have been omitted. It should also be emphasized that the listings that follow are based on preliminary inventories completed by the staff shortly before research for the guide in hand began. The reader is forewarned that some of the entries are incomplete.

The Oral History Collection of Columbia University, edited by Elizabeth B. Mason and Louis M. Starr, 4th ed. (New York, 1979). Every memoir has a name index. In addition, a computerized name, subject, and topical index (combined) is in preparation but only for the memoirs available in microform (those labeled "Micro") at present.

Columbia's oral history project, begun by Professor Allan Nevins, was the first such endeavor in this country. It remains the largest collection. Some of the listings below, though given separately, are also part of larger group projects (e.g., the "Eisenhower Administration" interview project). The larger project is indicated in parentheses after the individual name. In many cases, Russian/Soviet-related information forms a very small part of a total interview. The designation "Micro" at the end of a listing means that the transcript is also available in microform from the New York Times Oral History Program (Microfilming Corporation of America in Sanford, North Carolina). Many research libraries around the country will have some or all of these microforms. PRCQ means permission required to cite or quote.

Manuscript Collections in the Columbia University Libraries: A Descriptive List (New York, 1959) is brief and selective.

Although the bulk of the Russian-related archival materials of the Columbia University Libraries is in the Bakhmeteff Archive, the Manuscript Department (and other divisions) also have significant holdings.

Many collections in the Manuscript Department hold a small amount of Russian-related material (e.g., a calling card with brief signed note of P. Chaikovskii [Tchaikovsky]). Time did not permit identification of all such scattered holdings.

Since 1968 American scholars in the Russian/ Soviet field have been studying in the Soviet Union under the auspices of this organization (while their Soviet counterparts come here). In the course of their work, the researchers have examined large amounts of material on virtually all subjects, in a variety of archives and repositories. Many of them have brought back from their stays reproductions of these Soviet archival materials. Taken altogether, these photocopies and microfilm holdings may well represent one of the greatest resources in this country. But until now there has been no central record of which materials are in the U.S. Access to these items is enormously difficult, since they are in the hands of working scholars. Some years ago IREX attempted to compile a directory of these holdings, but responses to the circular inquiry were minimal. IREX is again planning to identify the materials that American scholars have used and duplicated. More information about this undertaking is available from the IREX staff, particularly the section how headed by Dorothy Knapp.

Other files and reports maintained by IREX that could be of interest to a researcher studying U.S.-Soviet exchange programs are generally kept confidential. However, some in-house reports are available for outside distribution. One current example is a bibliographic project that lists participants' published works based on research in the USSR. In addition, there are ways in which IREX can bring together researchers in fields of mutual interest. Thus, it might be possible to locate especially relevant duplicated materials in the U.S. on an individual basis, independent of the planned directory of such holdings. Such requests for specific information should again be directed to Dorothy Knapp.

The New York Public Library Research Libraries have published the Dictionary Catalog of the Manuscripts Division, 2 vols. (Boston: G. K. Hall, 1967).

One of the earliest and largest collections of Russian holdings in the United States, the New York Public Library has an impressive number and range of pertinent archival materials, scattered in several different divisions. It began the serious collection of Russian-language materials long before any other major U.S. repository and has continued to add to its riches over the years.

Manuscript materials not in the Manuscripts and Archives Division collections are described in other NYPL entries. Some of the Manuscripts Division's holdings are not physically located in the 42nd Street building but are in the Annex (521 West 43rd Street, New York, NY 10036; phone: 212-790-6338). As materials continue to be shifted to the Annex, some items described hereinafter as in the division may eventually go to the Annex. Collections known to be in the Annex already are so designated.

New York (NY) Jerome Robbins Dance Division New York Public Library for the Performing Arts 40 Lincoln Center Plaza (65th St and Columbus Ave)

New York NY 10023
(212) 870-1657

The Dictionary Catalog of the Dance Collection, 10 vols. (Boston: G. K. Hall, 1974). In 1973 the library published A Decade of Acquisitions: The Dance Collection 1964–1973. All of the information contained in this entry came from these 2 published finding aids.

The Jerome Robbins Dance Division in the New York Public Library at Lincoln Center is the most comprehensive, for all forms of dance, in the United States, perhaps in the world. The amount of Russian/Soviet-related material in the repository is extensive; the description that follows cannot do the collection justice. The Dance Collection comprises textual material, photographs, motion pictures, prints, original designs, sculpture, and sound recordings. Items are listed in the card catalogue under 4 rubrics: names (persons—dancers, choreographers, authors, composers, artists, designers; companies; organizations; etc.), titles (ballets, concert works, folk and ethnic dances, films, books, etc.), topical subjects (folk dancing, history and criticism, etc.), and geographical place names. In general, one can say that for every major Russian/Soviet dancer, choreographer, impresario, and ballet there are archival holdings in the New York Public Library. (Not all pertinent materials, however, are physically located in this division.) A selected listing of holdings, which follows, can give only the barest idea of the size and scope of relevant materials. Note: Many items are part of much larger collections. When known, these collections are indicated in parentheses at the appropriate point in descriptions. But the catalogue and published guides used in compiling this list were not always clear about this matter.

Note: The photo, print, picture, and clippings holdings of the library exist for virtually all of the persons, ballets, and subjects mentioned in the preceding description.

New York (NY) Music Division New York Public Library for the Performing Arts 40 Lincoln Center Plaza (65th St and Columbus Ave)
Third Floor
New York NY 10023

The library has published Dictionary Catalog of the Music Collection, 33 vols. (Boston: G. K. Hall, 1964) and a supplement, 13 vols. (1973). "A selected list of microfilms currently available in The Toscanini Memorial Archives of The New York Public Library, November, 1969" appears in College Music Symposium, 17 no. 2 (1977). Finally, manuscript acquisitions for all divisions since 1971 are listed in the Dictionary Catalog of the Research Libraries, an automated book catalogue.

A selected listing, taken from published finding aids, follows. Other divisions of the library hold related materials.

The Julliard School in New York at present holds some manuscript material of the composer Arkadii Dubenskii which it intends to give to the New York Public Library in the near future.

Restrictions: Persons requesting copies of manuscripts in the collection will be asked to outline their purposes and agree not to duplicate further or publish without specific permission.

New York (NY) Billy Rose Theatre Division New York Public Library for the Performing Arts Dorothy and Lewis B. Cullman Center
40 Lincoln Center Plaza (65th St and Columbus Ave)
New York NY 10023

All of the preceding information came, as noted, from the Catalog of the Theatre and Drama Collections, 3 parts, 30 vols. (Boston: G. K. Hall, 1967), and from the 2 supplements issued in 1973.

The catalogue of these 2 collections lists an impressive amount of Russian/Soviet-related material under a variety of headings, 30 vols. The catalogue is divided into book and nonbook listings, but even the first section has unpublished items. The descriptions which follow, taken directly from the catalogue, differentiate material according to the way the catalogue lists them; this listing is not exhaustive.

Note: The collections include a number of phonodisc recordings of plays by Russian/ Soviet authors (e.g., Anton Chekhov). (See listings under "Theatre—Recordings.") There are also related materials—for ballets and musical works—in the New York Public Library's other collections for Music and Dance and in the holdings of the Manuscripts and Archives Division and Prints Division.

A revised and enlarged 2nd edition of the Catalog of the Slavonic Division, 47 vols. (Boston: G. K. Hall, 1974).

Like nearly all the major divisions of the Research Libraries of the New York Public Library, the Slavonic Division holds a large amount of unpublished or archival materials relating to the Russian Empire/Soviet Union. It is impossible to estimate how much and what kind of archival material is deposited in the Slavonic Division, since no distinction is made between archival or manuscript materials and published titles. Even the subject heading "Manuscripts" is of limited usefulness. All manuscripts, unpublished typescripts, albums of photographs in bound form and other archival materials in original form or in photoreproduction are treated the same way as published monographs, i.e., they are catalogued by author, title, subject, bound and classed according to the subject with published books.

There is also a large quantity of unpublished short articles, personal biographies, and memoirs, bound, in the Division's pamphlet volume collections. These pamphlet volumes are all physically located in 1 area (though again catalogued separately). Below are listed some examples of specific holdings of archival materials found in the collection of the Slavonic Division:

Many of the preceding items are on Reserve; for conditions of access, please inquire at the Slavonic Division.

This repository began as the private library of the famous financier and banker J. Pierpont Morgan. In 1924 Morgan's son made it a public institution in memoriam to his father. The library is particularly rich in early, illuminated manuscripts and in the holographs of well-known cultural figures. In 2008 the Morgan acquired the James Fuld Collection of music and dance materials.

The Polish Institute has 2 large collections of materials that include some pertinent holdings: over 300 microfilms relating mostly to East European history and society, in 9 languages; and the oral and sound history collection, ca. 240 cassettes and tapes. Among the microfilms are manuscripts of Kazimierz Baginski on the trial of the 16 Polish Underground leaders in Moscow in 1945 (he was one of the accused), and of I. Nekrasov on Russian labor camps in Dmitrovsk and Samara. In the oral and sound history collection are the taped memoirs of General Michal Tadeusz Karaszewicz-Tokarzewski, commanding officer of the Polish Resistance Movement during World War II. Additions are expected in both these collections. There is also a biographical file which might hold data relating to the Russian Empire and Soviet Union.
