The Museum’s researcher L. Tremsina presented the results of the one and a half years of work done with E. Kolosovich and other volunteers to describe 45 boxes of archival material collected by G. Kumansky. She presented documents of many Russian organizations and photographs of individuals. The collection reflects the participation in these Russian organizations of L. F. Kumansky, Mr. Kumansky’s wife.

G. V. Kumansky’s presentation also aroused great interest.

N. Hidchenko donated rare Russian pre-war editions from Shanghai and Harbin to the Museum.

Senior archivist M. Meniailenko demonstrated a unique collection of articles “Depositories of Russia Abroad”, published in a small edition in San Francisco in 1954.
