Biographical Note

Samuel Northrup Harper was born on April 9, 1882, in the Morgan Park section of Chicago. He was the eldest son of William Rainey Harper who, several years later, became the first president of the new University of Chicago. His mother, Ella Paul Harper, was the daughter of Dr. David Paul, president of Muskingum College in Ohio.

From his earliest youth Samuel Harper was influenced by academics and scholars. Professors from abroad were often guests in his father's home. It is not surprising therefore that he was drawn to an academic career, or that his field of specialization should be a foreign nation. Harper

INVENTORY

Series I: Correspondence

Harper's earliest letters were written to his father at the age of nine when he, his mother, his brother Paul, and Mrs. (George?) Goodspeed were on a trip to Europe in 1891-92. But the correspondence remains occasional until Harper, at eighteen, worked as a guard in the American Pavilion of the Paris Exposition of 1900. From that time on it is possible to follow his career through his letters with some continuity, especially during his frequent trips abroad. Having never married he lived with his mother until her death in 1942, only a few months before his own. The most complete and intimate account of his interest, opinions, and aspirations is expressed in his letters to her.

Between 1891 and 1899 there are only four letters. Thereafter, counting letters, telegrams, and postcards, there is a fairly steady increase from eight items in the 1900 to eighty-nine items in 1913. In 1914, reflecting to some degree the new interest in Russia occasioned by the war, there is a sudden jump to one hundred and eighty items with the rate of increase rising rapidly and culminating with about one thousand and fifty items in 1918, Harper's first and busiest year with the State Department and also the year of his work on the Sisson documents. Beginning in 1919 there is a gradual decline, which does not level off until 1929, after which the yearly average varies between four and five hundred items.

In connection with his work for the State Department, and also in his correspondence with the Institute of Current World Affairs (founded in 1925), Harper received as enclosures many letters and copies of letters written by or to figures of prominence. In the spring of 1917 he began to keep, as a regular practice, carbon copies of his own outgoing mail. The numbers mentioned above include these letter-enclosures and copies of outgoing mail as well as all types of incoming correspondence.

The arrangement used in this section is chronological. Letters which are dated according to both the old and the new styles (O. S. and N. S. ) are filed according to the new style, or Gregorian calendar. When only one date is indicated it is presumed to be the Gregorian or new style.

Series II: Notes, Diaries and Interviews

There is significant overlap among the three types of material contained in this section. They are all notes of one kind or another - the primary records of Harper's eighteen trips to Russia and forty-three years study of Russian affairs, mainly in his own hand (except for a few interviews in the years, later on half sheets of typing size (51/2 x 81/2").

The notes, which are distinguished from the diaries because they have no chronological arrangement, are of two kinds. Those of sufficient length and coherence are listed in the inventory by their main topics. Those which are too disjointed or fragmentary to make their enumeration practical or their description by a single term or phrase possible are referred to as "miscellaneous. "

The diaries are the dated, chronological records of Harper's travels in the Russian provinces before 1915; later he used the form to make notes in Petrograd and Moscow as well. They contain not only his observations and comments on people, places, events, and institutions, but also random notations - such as names, addresses, personal accounts-and many interviews, usually with unnamed person, on the subject of local conditions. In the inventory the diaries are referred to as "travel" or "diaries" depending on whether they record trips through the provinces or deal with events or issues in the political centers of Petrograd or Moscow.

Finally, there are the longer interviews, often with well known political figures but also with people designated simple "policeman," "priest," "student," etc. In cases where no legible name or designation of the person interviewed has been provided by Harper, the interview is referred to by its main topic.

Almost never verbatim, the interviews are paraphrases, or translations from the Russian, of the original conversations. As the value of such material is to a great extent dependent on the way in which it was collected, the following passage from Pares' Foreword to The Russia I Believe In is pertinent:

We worked out a procedure of our own. We visited anyone who took a prominent part in the hectic life of that time-but never as interviewers; and as all confidences were respected, he would tell us his whole story-how he started, his views, his objects, and the part he had played. Usually, we went together; one of us handled the conversation, and the other committed it to memory; and the results we always recorded before we went to bed. Usually the work of each of us is recorded in the handwriting of the other...Suppose we were seeing, say, the fifth person present at some historical meeting; we could ourselves suggest corrections in his account, so that it was almost as if we were helping him to revise his memoirs before they appeared in print. ...But he [Harper] was also more practical than I, particularly in the tracing and capturing of out-of-the-way materials of political history, which we hunted up over the country. [Harper, op. cit. , p. , vii. ]

The material in this section is arranged chronologically based on the date of its composition in so far as this could be determined. When no date is recorded on an item the year of its composition, and its sequence within that year, have been estimated by examining its contents, and a question mark has been placed after the year. Because of its extremely diverse nature, as pointed out in the preceding paragraphs, the user should not assume that the headings used in the inventory reflect the entire contents of each envelope or folder.

Series III: Lectures and Lecture Notes

The material in this section consists of notes, outlines, and fully developed lectures. It has been divided into three sub-series: General, Russian History, and Miscellaneous. Under the heading "General" material is arranged topically, in alphabetical order. The dates of composition after each designation in the inventory are those that appear on the item or, when followed by a question mark, those which have been suggested by Harper in his contents of the item. Some were apparently used by Harper in his courses at the University of Chicago, others were addresses delivered at his many appearances before civic groups.

The sub-series "Russian History" contains material for Harper's courses on that subject. As its organization is historical it is arranged chronologically from "Kiev and the Tartar Period" to "Twentieth Century Russia. " No dates of composition are given for these items; the dates in the inventory are those of the historical periods, which are the subjects of the lectures. Included here too are bibliographies compiled or collected by Harper and used in his courses. [Box 35, f. 23, 24, 25. ]

Under the sub-heading "Miscellaneous" are filed fragments, which apparently belong in this section.

Series IV: Articles, Reports, and Translations Collected by Samuel Northrup Harper

The largest class of material collected here consists of copies of reports from American embassies and legations in Finland, the Baltic States, Turkey, and the Balkans. Based largely on translations form the Soviet press, they are addressed to the Secretary of State and were passed on to Harper for study in his capacity of special assistant in the Russian Division. Another large class are other translations and resumes of Russian sources-laws, decrees, speeches, and editorials-some of which may have been made by Harper himself. Finally, there are clippings of articles from Western magazines and newspapers on the subject of Russia and Bolshevism.

The arrangement used in this section is by subject, in alphabetical order, and within the subject by chronological sequence. The categories used were established for the most part by Harper and correspond roughly to those in Series VIII, "Translations for the State Department 1918-1922. " [About half of the material here was unfilled when the collection was received by the University of Chicago Library. As some of the unfilled items did not readily fit into the original categories, a few new ones were added to accommodate them. ]

Because of the overlapping nature of many of the categories the user may have to search under more than one heading to find the material he is looking for. In such a search the following examples and explanations may be helpful.

When the subject of an item clearly falls within the scope of an established category, it is, obviously, filed there. But there are numerous cases in which the subject of an article or speech may be difficult to narrow down. For example, the title of an editorial in Pravda of October 10, 1923, "The Peasant Reserve of the International Proletarian Revolution," might suggest that it be filed under "World Revolution," a conventional term of Communist dialectic used by Harper as a category, or under "Agriculture," which Harper uses very broadly to include everything from food shortages (but not famine) to life in the villages. However, a close scrutiny of the article in question reveals that it is about neither revolution nor the peasantry per se but the International Peasant's Conference held in the Kremlin in October of 1923. It is therefore filed under "Communist Party, International Activities. "

As stated above, priority of filing is given to the subject of an item. A speech by Stalin about Trotski is filed under "Trotski. " Directives from the Supreme Soviet regarding railways are filed under "Railways. " On the other hand, when an item treats more than one subject it is filed under its source. A speech in which Stalin speaks of foreign affairs, social problems, and trade, is filed under "Stalin. " But to this general rule there are two qualifications. 1) The institutional source is preferred to the personal. If Stalin's speech was delivered at a meeting of the Ninth Congress of the Third International, it is filed under "Communist Party, Third International. " 2) If the sum of the topics discussed in a single item such as a newspaper article or report fits under one of the general headings such as "General Conditions" or "Revolution and Civil War," it is filed there. These, and a few other very general categories, have been used to prevent and unmanageable proliferation of headings.

Series V: Articles by Harper

This section contains articles by Harper including book reviews, reports privately distributed by the Institute of Current World Affairs, and drafts, some of which were never developed into articles. A comparison of Ronald Thompson's bibliography of Harper's writings with the material in this section will show that many items listed by Thompson are not represented here in any form. The memoranda for the State Department listed by Thompson are filed in Series VII, "Reports to the State Department. "

The arrangement here, made by Harper, is mainly by subject, in alphabetical order, and chronological within each subject. There are also some form categories such as "Newspaper Articles" and the articles on Russia filed under "Compton's Encyclopedia" and "World Book Encyclopedia. "

Series VII: Reports to the State Department

The reports, memoranda, and drafts in this section were for the most part developed by Harper from the studies and translations which he made while employed in the Russian Division of the State Department. They are arranged chronologically with the drafts and notes relating to a particular memorandum or report preceding it in the inventory.

Since Harper carried on much of his work for the Department in Chicago, going to Washington only periodically, there is a great deal of information concerning these reports and memoranda in the correspondence in Series I.

Series VIII: Translations for the State Department, 1918-1922

This section consists of translations, summaries, and notations of news items from the Soviet press made by Harper while he was special assistant in the Russian Division of the State Department. Since it follows the subject arrangement established by Harper and is the most closely divided of any in the collection, its categories reflect distinctions indicative of Harper's basic attitudes, views, and interests, and are therefore of some importance in themselves.

There are several earlier indexes to this section in Box 64, f. 29, none of which contain all the headings now included in the inventory.

Series IX: Translations from the Russian Religious News Service

The existence of a number of drafts in this section suggests that Harper may have been the translator of at least a portion of these articles from the Soviet Press that appear to have been distributed by the Russian Religious News Service which operated out of an office at 347 Madison Avenue in New York City. The first third of the material here, under the sub-heading "Religion," concerns the Soviet campaign to suppress religion in Russia. The rest, under the sub-heading, "General," are articles of general interest, all written with a view to Marxist edification. The arrangement used in this section is a rough chronological order by year, with some subject grouping.

Series X: Exceptional Laws of Tsarist Russia

The notes contained in this section deal with the special extra-legal discretionary powers which were invested in the Tsarist police and administration "to safeguard the political order and public peace. " Harper apparently intended this to be the subject of a dissertation. [See the copy of a letter of recommendation from Maxim Kovalevsky (n. d. ), Box 1, f. 13. ] Though he never wrote a dissertation he did publish an article on "Exceptional Measures in Russia" in the Russian Review. [Box 59, f. 18. ]

The headings and organization of this section have been preserved as Harper left them except that seven items which did not bear headings have been assigned them based on an examination of their contents. It should be noted that because of the discursive nature of some of this material the headings used are only rough indications of the contents.

Series XI: Documents in Russian Collected by Harper

Harper was particularly intent on ferreting out documents of historical significance during his sojourns in Russia. [Harper, op. cit. , p. viii. ] Before the Revolution his many acquaintances in the opposition parties helped him acquire numerous documents relating to the activities of their parties or of other dissident groups. As there was no question of publishing these under the circumstances of repression prevailing at the time it is possible that some of the documents contained here provide information unavailable elsewhere.

Some are handwritten, such as the "Private Conference of Zemstvo Representatives in St. Petersburg, November 6-9, 1904" included in the "Kazan newsman's diary"; [Box 73, f. 3. ] others, like the transcript of the Peterhof Conference (July 19-20, 1905) are carbon copies of typescript; a few are typescript originals, such as the "Accusation Against fifty-five members of the Social Democratic Party. " [Box 73, f. 6. ]

In addition to the type of material mentioned above, this section also contains government committee reports, both Tsarist and Soviet, teaching plans, course outlines and syllabuses on the subject of Soviet political education; excerpts from Russian newspapers and T. A. S. S. press releases; Tsarist and Bolshevik broadsides and circulars; Tsarist émigré publications; and certain other diverse items such as a typescript copy of Tolstoy's, "The Destruction of Hell and its Restoration. " [ Box 73, f. 1] The index to this collection, arranged by both subject and title, lists some 1, 500 entries. Dating from both the Tsarist and the Soviet periods, they deal with almost every political and social issue of the times. Harper acquired many of them through his connection with the State Department which received material confiscated as subversive by the United States Post Office.

Series XII: Selected Material For the Memoirs and Drafts

At his death on January 18, 1943, Harper left the manuscript of his memoirs through the year 1936 and for a period in 1941-1942. Mr. Ronald Thompson, one of Harper's students, selected from Harper's papers notes and correspondence with which to continue the story from the beginning of 1937 until the end of his life. This section contains the notes selected by Thompson as well as Harper's manuscript memoirs and the drafts of their published version, The Russia I Believe In, edited by his brother Paul V. Harper, with the assistance of Thompson. The correspondence which was contained in this section has been refilled in Series I.

The Russia I Believe In ends its account of Harper's career in June 1941. The importance of this section to anyone interested in Harper is that it contains, in manuscript, memoirs for 1941-1942, and, in the earlier drafts of The Russia I Believe In, information which does not appear in the book. In Thompson's prefatory notes, the first item in the following inventory, there is no suggestion that the last nineteen months of Harper's life would be omitted from the book, nor any indication as to why they were.

The organization used in this section is chronological. The chapters referred to are the drafts of those in The Russia I Believe In.

Series XIII: Miscellaneous

Collected here are calling cards of Harper's friends and acquaintances, engagement and address books, postcards, and photographs. No attempt has been made to order the calling cards. The engagement and address books that are dated are arranged chronologically. The postcards, most of which have not been used, are ordered according to the subjects of their illustrations. The photographs are also grouped according to the nature of their subjects (landscapes, portraits, etc. ). Both the postcards and the photographs pertain largely to Russia. Other postcards, photographs, and negatives of photos in this collection are located in the S. N. Harper collection of Russian pamphlets (DK246 . S2 Rare).
