About the archives

Archival holdings at the Shevchenko Scientific Society shed light on the life and work of Ukrainians in different European and American places since the 1840’s.

After the Society’s reestablishment in New York City in 1947, it continued to acquire and preserve both private and organizational collections of correspondence, writings, personal documents, photographs, subject files, and maps. A significant percentage of the archive’s collection documents the life of Ukrainians and citizens of other counties who lived in Ukraine, Ukrainian life in post-war Europe (namely in the Displaced Persons camps), and life in the United States. Archival acquisitions include those of various literati, civic activists, politicians, professors, artists, musicians, and educators. The primarily language of collections is Ukrainian; however, much of material is written in English, German, Polish, and Russian. .

The Bulletin of the Shevchenko Scientific Society, published twice per year, features articles about the newest acquisitions both to the archives and the library, and publishes some material from the archival repository. Look for a series of memoirs from the Society’s to be published beginning 2018.
