Description:
Nina Nikolaevna Berberova was a Russian writer of novels, short stories and poetry. She was born August 8, 1901 (July 26, 1901, old style) in St. Petersburg, Russia and emigrated to the United States in 1950. She taught at Yale and Princeton before retiring in 1971. In 1991 she moved from Princeton, New Jersey to Philadelphia, where she died in 1993.
The collection is in Russian and English and includes translations of some letters from Russian to English.
Abstract:
Series I was collected and donated by Berberova's former student Murl Barker. Barker's collection includes correspondence, papers, photographs and audiovisual recordings which document Berberova's career, especially after her emigration to the United States in 1950. Several folders of material relate to Bii︠a︡nkurskie prazdniki i drugie rasskazy (Billancourt Tales). Series II, donated by John Malmstad, consists chiefly of letters from Berberova to Malmstad.
