Scope and Content

This collection consists largely of the correspondence of Rev. David Chubov, as well as of collected materials relating to anti-communist propaganda and activities and to Church affairs (1920s-1950s). The correspondence relating to the resettlement of Russian displaced persons and the interned troops of Gen. B. A. Khol'mston-Smyslovskii's anti-Soviet military force (1946-1948) is particularly significant, as are many of the rare brochures and leaflets issued by various Russian émigré organizations.
The collection includes some additional material donated by Chubov's secretary, Sofia Izler, after his death.
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 Museum of Russian Culture. The grant also provides depositing a microfilm copy in the Hoover Institution Archives.
