Rodrigues, Armand

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Chronological Dossiers

The series consists of materials extracted from the Biographical Dossiers and rearranged by year and month. Either for personal or historical reasons, Batchinsky selected materials he considered most important: correspondence, photographs, clippings, whole newspapers and documents. Where they exist, his notes of such transfers, written on various containers, are filed at the front of the year.

The monthly Chronological Dossiers (CD) form the second major file created by Batchinsky. They consist of about four hundred folders on contemporary events spanning the periods of 1914-1968.
