Description

Scope and Content

Correspondence, manuscripts, documents, photographs, subject files, and printed materials. The bulk of the correspondence consists of copies of reports and dispatches sent by Botkin to the Council of Ambassadors (in Paris) in 1919-35. Also included are many letters to Botkin by Baron V. Osten-Saken, and Botkin's letterbooks for 1930-34. Manuscripts include Botkin's memoirs. Extensive subject files concern Russian prisoners of of war in World War I, the Civil War in the Baltic region, and the emigration in Germany in the 1920s and 30s. Also included are miscellaneous materials relating to the Imperial Ministry of Foreign Affairs in the 19th and early 20th centuries, including consular correspondence, departmental circulars, passports, and texts of treaties. There is a letter signed by the painter Orest Kiprenskiĭ, and letters and documents signed by such officials as Aleksandr Izzvolśkiĭ, V.N. Lamzdorf, Ivan Paskevich, Sergeĭ Sazonov, and Sergeĭ Uvarov. These items were collected by Botkin.
