Description

Scope and Content

Papers consist of correspondence, manuscripts, and printed materials. Correspondents include Nadezhda Teffi and Pierre Fresnay. There are manuscripts of stories, novels, plays, scenarios, and memoirs by Oks. Oks' memoirs touch on his legal career in Russia and meetings with Sarah Bernhardt and Fedor Shali︠a︡pin; the memoirs of his wife, Lidii︠a︡ Borshch, concern the period of the Revolution and Civil War in Russia and meetings with Maksim Gorḱiĭ in Italy in the 1920s. Among the printed materials are the first issue of the emigre literary journal "Chisla," theatrical newspapers from Petrograd in 1914-16, and issues of French periodicals with Oks' memoirs about his legal career in Russia, including contacts with Lenin and Trotsky.
