Scope and Content Note
This collection consists of correspondence, clippings and other matter reflecting Kniazeff's involvement in various émigré
organizations. He was a member of the San Francisco Trans-Baikal Cossacks' Stanitza and of the Harbin Polytechnic Alumni Association,
and senior scoutmaster of the Natsional'naia Organizatsiia Russkikh Skautov (National Organization of Russian Scouts, or St.
George's Knights, as it was incorporated in California). Most of the collection relates to the history of the Russian Boy
Scout movement abroad, particularly for the period 1963-1975.
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.
