Overview and metadata sections

Krueger, John Richard, 1927-

Born in Shaimurzino Village, Chuvashia (USSR), located in central Russia, Gennadiĭ Aĭgi was a poet and translator. From 1953 to 1959, Aigi studied at the Gorky Instiutute of Literature in Moscow. His poetry was written in Chuvash, the language of the Turkic Chuvash people that comprise the majority of the population of the Chuvashia region.

The collection consists of Krueger's correspondence with Peter France and Gennadiĭ Aĭgi regarding a Chuvash poetry anthology (published by UNESCO in 1991) and Kreuger's Chuvas language manual, as well as poems (in Russian and English) used in the anthology.

This collection was the gift of Dr. John R. Krueger in 2007.
