Subject Dossiers

This series consists of the Subject Dossiers that range from the 1920's to the early 1970's. They are concentrated in the later 1930's and 1940's. The Dossiers contain correspondence, clippings and sometimes official documents.

Although Batchinsky originally concentrated his documentation in the Biographical Dossiers, he also created a few Subject Dossiers concerning organizations, religious and secular groups, countries or cities where Ukrainian questions arose, and dealing with particular periodicals, publishing houses and other businesses. Sixty-five subjects are covered, of which only eight occupy more than one folder. The relationship of these Dossiers to other Dossier files and to Batchinsky's autobiography is unclear: the Subject Dossiers may have been depleted by transfers to the larger but more structured files.

Ukrains'ka Avtokefal'na Pravoslavna Tserkva (UAPTs)

The series consists of Batchinsky's manuscript drafts of his shitroy of the UAPT, UAPT documents, and clippings and publications concerning the UAPT and Ukrainian religious affairs in general.

Batchinsky, a strong supporter of the Ukrainian national church movement, was appointed in 1922 official lay representative in Western Europe of the Ukrains'ka Avtokefal'na Pravoslavna Tserkva (Ukrainian Autocephalous Orthodox Church), established in 1920. This "church" was dissolved by Soviet state authorities in 1930, however, Batchinsky continued his religious activities as a lay person and later (from 1955 on) as a bishop in one of the branches of the UAPT in the Diaspora.
