    Scope and Content Note

    V. Ia. Tolmachev was a professor of archaeology and zoology in interwar China (Manchuria). He founded and organized the commercial/industrial and archeological sections of the Harbin state museum and the Railway Museum there, of which he was curator for 10 years. The collection contains his speeches and writings on a variety of themes associated with archeology, ancient history, biology, zoology and related studies. Many of the underlined titles listed in SPEECHES AND WRITINGS are in fact limited edition off-prints of his articles in "Vestnik Man'chzhurii." There is also a small amount of correspondence and notes on Russian philately (SUBJECT FILE/Stamp collecting).
    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.
