Scope and Content Note
Iustina V. Kruzenshtern-Peterets (1903-1983) was a poet, writer, and journalist in China and the United States. She wrote
for a number of émigré publications, among them
Gun-Bao in Harbin and
Vecherniaia zaria in Shanghai, and
Novoe russkoe slovo and
Russkaia zhizn' in the United States, and also worked as a commentator for Radio Liberty (the collection contains transcripts she worked
on; see SPEECHES AND WRITINGS/General/Transcripts). Of particular interest are her correspondence with well-known émigré writers
and poets, and her untitled memoirs of life in Harbin and Shanghai (SPEECHES AND WRITINGS/Untitled memoirs and "V krasnom
Russkaia zhizn', 1961). The collection later passed through the hands of Mariia Tourkoff (Vizi), and includes explanatory notes in her hand,
as well as photographs and certain additional material in the subject file.
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.
