Frank Golder--professor of Russian history and the first curator of the Hoover War Collection--founded the extraordinary Slavic collection now housed in the Hoover archives. Golder visited Russia repeatedly during the first three decades of the century, witnessing Russia's entry into the Great War, the Revolution, the early workings of Lenin's government, and the changes in Soviet society after Lenin's death. Herewith excerpts from Golder's historic diary and letters, selected by Acting Archivist Elena S. Danielson.
