The Hoover Institution’s holdings on Armenia, while not extensive by volume, are historically significant, spanning that country’s history from the early 20th century through the 21st. The collections relating to Armenia during the period of the First World War and Paris Peace Conference are particularly important, including the United States Military Mission to Armenia photographs (1919) and the John Shishmanian papers. The Vahan Emin collection is important for the study of the Nagorno-Karabakh issue and Armenians in the USSR, and more current materials are to be found in the Armenian Subject collection.
