Scope and Content Note
This collection contains the records of the Federation of Russian Charitable Organizations, whose primary purpose was to assist
in the immigration of Russian displaced persons from the Far East and Europe to the United States and Australia following
the Second World War. The collection was originally arranged by the organization's director, Anatolii Stefanovich Loukashkin,
and his classification has been retained. The records include the organization's predecessors and affiliates, e.g. The Committee
of Russian Charitable Organizations of Northern California, Russian Orthodox Churches Relief Fund, and Russko-Amerikanskii
soiuz zashchity i pomoshchi russkim vne Rossii (aka Russian-American Union).

Culture, San Francisco as its property. A transfer table indicating corresponding box and reel numbers is available at the
