Scope and Content
This collection consists of the papers of Leonid Kutukov, an officer in the Leib-Gvardii
Moskovskii Polk (Moscow Life Guards Regiment) who emigrated to France after the
Revolution and remained active in regimental activities abroad. The most important part
consists of material related to the history of this regiment, especially during WWI and
the Civil War. Of special interest are holograph and typescript eyewitness accounts by
officers of the regiment re events during the early days of the revolution. This material
was used by Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn in preparation for his multi-volume historical novel
The Red Wheel. The collection contains a letter from the author to Leonid
Kutukov in the WRITINGS FILE.
Also of interest is material related to right wing and monarchist circles in the
emigration, including issues of
Parizhskii Vestnik, published during the
German occupation of Paris, 1942-1944.
Finally the collection contains the writings of Leonid Kutukov, mostly published in the
Chasovoi, and miscellaneous material re the singing career of his
wife, Sophia Kolomeitseva-Kutukova.
