Overview and metadata sections

Naĭman

Anatoly Naiman (1936-2022) was a Russian poet and translator who for a time served as secretary to fellow Russian poet, Anna Akhmatova. Along with Dmitrii Bobyshev, Joseph Brodsky, and Evgenii Rein, Anatoly Naiman was a member of the "Akhmatova Orphans" circle, a group of four poets whom Akhmatova called her "magic choir."

The collection primarily consists of correspondence to Russian poet, translator, and writer Anatoly Naiman (1936-2022) from friends, family, and colleagues along with some writings, photographs, personal documents, and clippings. Other individuals represented in the collection include Anna Ahkamatova, Galina Narinskaya, and Naiman's mother, Asya Davidovna Naiman. Additional 20th-century Russian literary figures represented include Joseph Brodsky, Sergei Dovlatov, Lidia Chukovskaya, Evgenii Rein, and Dmitrii Bobyshev.

While processors imposed intellectual organization for Naiman's papers as well as some physical organization of like materials, original order of physical arrangement at the folder level was largely maintained.
