Guide to Documents and Manuscripts in the Irish Republic Relating to Russia and the Soviet Union
A supplement to Guide to Documents and Manuscripts in the United Kingdom Relating to Russia and the Soviet Union (1987). The following repositories are included: the Birr Scientific and Heritage Foundation (Birr), The Boole Library (Cork), The Chester Beatty Library, The communist Party of Ireland, The Genealogical Office, Historical Library, Religious Society of Friends in Ireland, Military Archives, National Archives, National Botanic Gardens, National Library of Ireland, Representative Church Body Library (Church of Ireland), Royal Irish Academy, Trinity College Library (all Dublin), Franciscan Institute of Celtic Studies and Historical Research (Killiney), St Patrick’s College Library (Maynooth), Museum of the 4th Field Artillery Regiment (Mullingar), and papers in private ownership listed by the National Library of Ireland or described in the printed reports of the Royal Commission on Historical Manuscripts.
The definition of ‘Russia and the Soviet Union’ has been deliberately very loose, on the grounds that the interests of researchers using this Guide should take priority over geographical and chronological exactness. Two examples of the inclusion of such material are, firstly, the important collection of early Armenian manuscripts at the Chester Beatty Library which are all dated before Armenia became part of the Russian Empire, and, secondly, the extensive records in the National Archives relating to the Baltic states of Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania between the two World Wars.
