Description

Scope and Content

Correspondence, manuscripts, subject files, and printed materials. Cataloged correspondents in the collection include Georgiĭ Adamovich, Mstislav Dobuzhinskiĭ, and Sergeĭ Lifar.́ Manuscripts consist of typed copies of Pierre Kovalevskiĭ's extensive diaries, which begin in Petrograd in 1918 and continue to 1973; the only missing years are 1961-1969. Subject files chiefly concern emigre organizations with which Evgraf was involved, especially the Russian Academic Group (Russkai︠a︡ Akademicheskai︠a︡ Gruppa) and the Russian Committee of United Organizations (Russkiĭ Komitet Obʺedinennykh Organizat︠s︡iĭ). Post-World War II organizational files of Petr Kovalevskiĭ are on the Society for the Preservation of Russian Cultural Valuables (Obschestvo Okhranenii︠a︡ Russkikh Kult́urnyk T︠S︡ennosteĭ), and the Committee to Commemorate the 250th Anniversary of St. Petersburg (I︠U︡bileĭnyĭ Komitet Oznamenovanii︠a︡ 250-ti letii︠a︡ St. Peterburga).
