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.
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.
