Hoover’s earliest holdings on Moldavia go back to the Congress of Paris (1856): the miscellaneous records of the Congress refer to the reorganization of Wallachia and Moldavia following the Crimean War. The Alexander Krupenskii  papers and V.A. Maklakov papers are rich and important resources for the history of the region during the Russian Civil War, 1917-1920, including the issues of Romanian intervention and possible independence of Bessarabia. Contemporary issues, including materials related to Pridnestrov’e, can be found in the Moldavian subject collection and Igor Mikhailov collection.
