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.

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.

Autobiography (series)

This series consists of 24 bound volumes and 12 preparatory folders and typescript notes, correspondence, postcards, travel vouchers, restaurant menus, photographs, sketches, paintings, souvenir objects of people and places, clippings, pamphlets (some rare), etc. A running commentary is added and various paginations are imposed on the volumes. Volumes are identified by serial number of date span.

Batchinsky began compiling his "autobiography" when he was eighty-four years old. He states that is was compiled in an unsystematic fashion; it does, for the most part, take the form of an extended scrapbook. There is no index to these materials.
