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.

Batchinsky, Evhen (Eugene) Vasylovych

Leonid Bachynsky

Batchinsky's correspondence with his brother Leonid: 1920-1973. Leonid Bachynsky was born 28 February in Katerynoslav and was a teacher and community activist. During the revolutionary years, he gave many lectures to the solders in UNR army camps and later was involved in the organization of Plast (Ukrainian Scouts) in Transcarpathia during 1923-1929. In 1952 he founded the Ukrainian Museum-Archives in Cleveland, Ohio, which he directed until 1977.

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.

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.

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.

Minor files: Religious materials

This series consists of extensive miscellanea on religious materials: Christmas and Easter, working notes and unfinished manuscript drafts, issues and clippings of newspapers and magazines.

Minor files to supplement other sections.

Autobiography; Manuscript and typescript records

Batchinsky's original collection manuscript and typescript records include: some Dossier indexes and lists, a register of correspondence with accounts of moneys received from supporters and parishioners; address file; sample letterhead; and a catalogue of his library.
