collage of materials from the Museum of Russian Culture Microfilm collection

Museum of Russian Culture Microfilm Collection


Eighty-five collections from the Museum of Russian Culture in San Francisco are available on microfilm at the Hoover Archives. These collections open new horizons in the study of Russian émigrés and their contribution to the intellectual, cultural and scientific life of their adopted countries and closely dovetail with Hoover's holdings. Historians, specialists in Russian literature and social scientists will all find materials well worth their scholarly interest.

Detailed processing and preservation microfilming for these materials were made possible by a generous grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities and by matching funds from the Hoover Institution and Museum of Russian Culture. The original materials and all copyright to them (with certain exceptions) remain in the Museum of Russian Culture, San Francisco, as its property. Requests to publish should be directed to the Hoover Institution Archives.
