Scope and Content Note

Olga Morozova was a novelist who published several works in China in the 1930s. This collection contains her rare and unpublished writings, including reminiscences of Tubabao, a camp in the Philippines for Russian displaced persons from the Far East, and collected materials for a biographical dictionary of prominent Russian émigrés, entitled "Kul'turnye sily rossiiskoi emigratsii."
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.
