Scope and Content of Collection

These papers contain the correspondence and writings of Vladimir Sergeevich Khitrovo, a graduate of the Pazheskii korpus and participant of World War I and member of the White Army. In emigration, Khitrovo was active in the alumni association of the Pazheskii korpus, the Soiuz pazhei, which is reflected in a number of organizational files of this association, including bylaws, correspondence, and lists of members within the Subject file. Of particular interest is Khitrovo's unpublished memoir of World War I, "Vospominaniia i materialy dlia istorii. Leib-gvardii konnaia artilleriia. Chast' II-aia. Voina 1914-1917. Pokhod v vostochnuiu Prussiiu," which include numerous original photographs.
