Description

Scope and Content

The collection consists of correspondence, manuscripts, case files, a few subject files, printed material and three caricature drawings of Filonenko. By far the greatest amount of material is in the form of manuscripts and case files. The manuscripts fall into two categories: notes and drafts, written in French, dealing with legal matters, and a diary, containing a large number of clippings, in which Filonenko chronicles and comments upon events in Russia, Eastern and Western Europe during the period 1918-1920. The case files, primarily from the 1930s, contain materials gathered in the process of defending his clients, chiefly Russian emigres, before the French courts. Included among these are the records of Filonenko's defense of Nadezhda Plevitskai︠a︡-Skoblin in the General Miller kidnapping trial in 1937-38.
