Description
Correspondence, reports, receipts, and accounts, relating to the payment of Russian soldiers in Bulgaria and Yugoslavia, financial subsidies to refugees, administration of refugee camp facilities, and the composition and distribution of units of the First Army Corps and the Don Corps
Background
These records, together with those of the Justice Department of the Russian Army (Sudnoe Otdielenie Russkoi Armii), were previously accessioned at the Hoover Institution as the F. F. Abramoff collection. Both groups of records at one point were in the possession of General Abramoff, who commanded the Don Army Corps in Bulgaria, but he was not the originator of the records themselves. The office of the Chief of Supply was relocated in Bulgaria after the evacuation of General Wrangel's Russian Army from the Crimean Peninsula in 1920, and was responsible for the distribution of funds to the First Army Corps and the Don Army Corps, both of which were billeted in Bulgaria after 1922. General Abramoff probably assumed possession of the files of the Chief of Supply after many of the Russian Army organizations and offices disintegrated in 1926-1927 because of the acute shortage of funds.
