This collection was created by Baroness Mariia Vrangel', mother of Baron Petr Nikolaevich
Vrangel', last commander of the White Army, as a memorial to the cultural, academic and
social contributions of the so-called first Russian emigration. This group was formed by
individuals who emigrated from Russia after the defeat of the White Movement in the early
1920's and included many prominent representatives of the cultural and political elite of
Imperial Russia. The collection incorporates a great variety of material, including
biographical information which Baroness Vrangel' solicited from individuals as well as
organizatons active in the emigre community, personal correspondence, short biographies
and autobiographies, memoirs, original and printed works as well as photographs. There is
also a large volume of clippings from the contemporary emigre press. The collection
consists of two parts, the first is arranged by the profession or field of activity of an
individual or organization. This includes writers, artists and academics as well as
social and professional organizations. The second is arranged by geographical location
and includes material about emigre communities scattered around the globe.
