Batchinsky, Evhen (Eugene) Vasylovych

Monographs

Four hundred sixty-five catalogue monographs (books and pamphlets) exist. Approximately four hundred others, consisting of standard texts, reference words and multiple copies are unlisted.

Only the remnants of Batchinsky's library (i.e. of his books as opposed to his papers) were acquired by Carleton. As noted in the General Description, it appears from his own statements in the Autobiography, from his surviving lists and from other clues in the Collection that Batchinsky's holdings of books and serials had been considerably depleted by theft, as well as by donations, such as those to the Symon Petlura Library in Paris.

Serial Collection

Two hundred fifty eight catalogued serials represented by at least several issues or known to be important appear in the list with holdings. Square brackets around holdings, e.g.[2-4], indicate defective copies of holding gaps between the first and last issues cited. Approximately two hundred fifty other titles are unlisted and are held only in single or scattered issues.

In addition to the thousands of single serial issues (newspapers, newsletters, journals, etc.) dispersed by Batchinsky to specific dossiers concerning individuals, organizations, particular dates and subjects, the Collection contains many collected runs of serials published in the Ukraine and Western Europe

The serial files range from the late nineteenth century to the 1960's, but cover principally the period spanned by the two World Wars. The collection is notably strong in newspapers and the bulletins of Ukrainian press services of that period in Western Europe. Many formats, frequencies (daily, weekly, monthly), and languages (but predominantly Ukrainian) are represented. Holdings vary from fragmentary to extensive. Some, especially the newspapers, are extremely rare or fragile, or both.

Minor files

This series consists of small separate files supplementing other sections: Het'man Pavlo Skoropads'kyi (1873-1945): articles and publications, 1933-1958, mainly from emigre courses.

Lev Yurkevych

This series consists of photographs

Lev Yurkevych was a prominent member of the Ukrainian intelligentsia in tsarist Ukraine, a prolific writer on the national question and socialism, a well-known social democrat, and actively involved in publishing. Along with Volodymyr Vynnychenko (a leading Ukrainian social democrat) and Iurii Tyshchenko, they established the Dzvin publishing house in 1907.

Soiuz vyzvolennia Ukrainy (SVU)

This series consists of a large number of pamphlets, broadsides, photographs etc. There are a large number of copies of the SVU's main organ Vistnyk Soiuza Vyzvolennia Ukrainy, which are found in the Serials series. Of special interest is a substantial collection of posters and programs for cultural and educational events (plays, concerts, etc.) sponsored by SVU for these prisoners. Because of their large size, the posters are separately located.

The materials in this series reflect SVU's attempt to raise the profile of the "Ukrainian question" during World War I, and record its cultural-educational work among tsarist prisoners of war in Austrian and German camps.

Taras Shevchenko

This series contains a very broad selection of Shevchenkiana ranging from miscellaneous newspaper articles to commemorative souvenirs. There are two typescripts of a history of Swiss-Ukrainian relations.

Batchinsky was interested in all things concerning Shevchenko and collected almost anything that he could find on this theme. Batchinsky was also interested in any connections between Shevchenko and Switzerland.

Swiss Ukrainica: Chyzhevsky and Mexin

This series consists mainly of business correspondence between Pavlo Chyzhevsky (Tchijewsky) and Salomon Mexin (representing the Ukrainian trade delegation to Switzerland) concerning their dealings with PABISCO in Geneva for the purpose of establishing credit and financial aid for the UNR Subjects including the financing of propaganda in favour of the UNR, support for a Ukrainian army, the liberation of Ukraine from bolshevism and its reconstruction as an independent nation-state.
