Vladimir Sergeevich Khitrovo was born in Russia in 1891, graduating from the Pazheskii korpus in 1910. In 1918 he served as an officer in General Kirpichev’s Kievskaia dobrovol’cheskaia druzhina, and in 1920 he worked as the chief of the Russian press bureau in Constantinople. Khitrovo died in Paris, France in 1968.
These papers contain the correspondence and writings of Vladimir Sergeevich Khitrovo, a graduate of the Pazheskii korpus and participant of World War I and member of the White Army. In emigration, Khitrovo was active in the alumni association of the Pazheskii korpus, the Soiuz pazhei, which is reflected in a number of organizational files of this association, including bylaws, correspondence, and lists of members within the Subject file. Of particular interest is Khitrovo’s unpublished memoir of World War I, “Vospominaniia i materialy dlia istorii. Leib-gvardii konnaia artilleriia. Chast’ II-aia. Voina 1914-1917. Pokhod v vostochnuiu Prussiiu,” which include numerous original photographs.
