    Scope and Content Note

    This collection consists mainly of clippings, along with some leaflets and a small amount of internal documentation of the Union of Russian Taxi-Drivers in Paris in the late 1920s-early 1930s. The Union, whose membership at one point numbered in the thousands, was a potent labor group that participated actively in the strike of 1934.
    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 grant also provides depositing a microfilm copy in the Hoover Institution Archives. The original materials remain in the Museum of Russian Culture, San Francisco, as its property. A transfer table indicating corresponding box and reel numbers is available at the Hoover Institution Archives.
    The Hoover Institution assumes all responsibility for notifying users that they must comply with the copyright law of the United States (Title 17 United States Code) and Hoover Rules for the Use and Reproduction of Archival Materials.
