    Scope and Content Note

    The primary individual associated with these papers is Nikolai Viktorovich Borzov, but they contain materials connected with the activities of his sons, Boris Nikolaevich and Viktor Nikolaevich Borzov, as well as materials relating to or originating from other family members: daughter Aleksandra Nikolaevna Borzov, and wife, Sofiia Aleksandrovna. Both Nikolai Viktorovich and his son, Viktor Nikolaevich, were active in a large number of organizations with social, educational, and charitable goals, particularly in connection with helping Russian children and students in China and the United States. This collection reflects their activities in this sphere. The papers are especially rich on problems of high school and university education among Russian émigrés.
    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.
