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.
