 File — Box: 3, Folder: 5

Scope and Contents note

From the Collection:

The Victor M. Baydalakoff Collection consists of correspondence, documents, reports, and photographs, as well as some interesting examples of anti-Communist agitational literature. It contains various organizational materials, documents, reports, and publications generated by various administrative, information, and operational sectors of the NTS (Natsionalno-Trudovoi Soiuz, trans: The National Worker's Alliance), an organization Baydalakoff founded in 1930. Mr. Baydalakoff's personal correspondence (1952, 1954 - 1965) and papers are also present in the collection.

Although a small amount of pre-war material is found in the collection, the bulk of the material spans from approximately 1948 through 1956. It reflects the organization's past achievements, present challenges, and future goals, as well as providing a graphic illustration of the various internal power struggles among the leadership, which ultimately resulted in Victor Baydalakoff's split with the organization in 1956.

Consisting of ten boxes and one oversized container of approximately 6.5 linear feet in length, this collection offers researchers an opportunity to trace the historical, political, organizational, and ideological development of an important anti-Communist emigre organization (which is still in existence today), as well as the personal philosophy of its founder.
