Diary Dossiers

  • The daily Diary Dossiers (DD) are the third major file in the Collection, both in quantity and in importance in Batchinsky's system of file building. There are about 230 folders of manuscript, documentary and clipped material, and about 400 folders of removed whole publications (DDR), mostly newspapers.
  • The period covered extends from 1905-1939, with notable gaps in 1914, 1916, 1919-20, 1922-23, 1925, 1927, 1929-30 and 1933-38. The gaps match some years available in the Chronological Dossiers which constitute a less detailed record. In view of the historical value of the Diary Dossiers, the file is the first to have been microfilmed.

After creating the monthly Chronological Dossers, Batchinsky trasformed some of them into daily Diary Dossiers. He arranged the selected material in day-date order and interlaved a manuscript commentary describing his activities on the relevant day, with other background information about the accompanying correspondence, news clippings and other papers. Batchinsky used the terms "volumes" and "diary" in referring to materials in the resulting bundles in this file. He did not indicate why only some of the Chronological Dossiers were transformed into Diary Dossiers.

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.

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.
