Scope and Content Note
Semen Dmitrievich Ignat'ev was well-known as a composer and conductor of the Kuban' Cossack Chorus, and later of church choirs.
This collection consists mainly of materials relating to these activities. Other subjects include autobiographical writings
dealing with his experiences on Gallipoli in the early 1920s and in Berlin in 1945, as well as writings, subject files and
printed matter relating to Russian Orthodox liturgical music. Some of the correspondence is with relatives in the Soviet Union.
Detailed processing and preservation microfilming of 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 the Museum of Russian Culture. The grant
also provides depositing a microfilm copy in the Hoover Institution Archives. The original materials remain at the Museum
of Russian Culture, San Francisco, as its property. A transfer table of corresponding box and reel numbers is available at
the Hoover Institution Archives.
