    Scope and Content Note

    K. V. Semchevskii was a Russian army colonel and member of the association of graduates of the Corps de Pages and former officers of the Guards Horse Artillery. Most of the correspondence (almost entirely with former comrades-in-arms), writings, and subject file reflect his involvement in these organizations and general information on Russian military history. The SUBJECT FILE/Russia. Armiia/General contains the diary of Gen. Bezobrazov for 1917-1924.
    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.
