    Scope and Content of Collection

    The Rostislav Evdokimov papers relate to activities of the Narodno-Trudovoĭ Soiuz (NTS) and other anticommunist and labor organizations in the Soviet Union, as well as political conditions in the Soviet Union, post-Soviet Russia, and the city of Saint Petersburg. The collection consists of correspondence, writings, memoranda, newspaper issues, election campaign literature, printed matter, photographs, and video tapes.
    The bulk of the collection dates from 1987 through 2000, after Evdokimov, a writer and social activist, was released from labor camp. He took on leadership roles in the International Society for Human Rights and St. Petersburg branch of the NTS, as well as being an active member of the Editorial board of the NTS publication Posev.
    The collection consists of six series, each presenting different aspects of Evdokimov's activities. The Narodno-trudovoĭ Soiuz (NTS) Saint-Petersburg branch materials and the Election campaigns file record Evdokimov's activities as a leader of the Saint-Petersburg political group and his participation in local elections.
    While working on his writings, Evdokimov collected material reflecting his interests in the social, politica,l and economic situation in the Soviet Union, post-Soviet Russia, and former Soviet republics. This material in the Subject file, became a foundation for his published political books and articles found in the Writings. The Printed matter and Video recordings series contain additional documents reflecting NTS activities and political events.
