Description
Correspondence, reports, memoranda, and notes, relating to relations between France and the Russian Provisional Government, the Russian Revolution, counter-revolutionary movements, the Paris Peace Conference, and Russian emigres after the revolution. Entire collection also on microfilm (38 reels).
Background
The files of the Russian Embassy in Paris at the Hoover Institution cover the period of the ambassadorship of Basil Maklakoff. Maklakoff was appointed ambassador of the Russian Provisional Government to France by Alexander Kerensky in March 1917, and remained as the Russian ambassador until France recognized the U.S.S.R. in 1926. The bulk of the records is dated from 1918 until 1922 and document the operations of White Russian forces in their five-year struggle against the Bolsheviks. Activities of the Russian Embassy in Paris included participation in the Paris Peace Conference, 1919, and the organization of network of social welfare offices for the Russian immigrants, military and civilian, who fled Russia during the Russian Civil War.
