Scope and Content Note

The papers of A. A. Dobkevich relate primarily to his service in the First World War and Russian Civil War (in Ataman B. V. Annenkov's unit, on an armored train, and in the security forces of the Chinese Eastern Railway). The collection also includes a few family photographs, and his father's (Lt. Colonel A. F. Dobkevich) military service record (1914).
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 the 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.
