The collection contains documents relating to the investigation into the assassination of Pyotr Stolypin. Stolypin (1862-1911), after having served as governor of the provinces of Grodno (1902) and Saratov (1903-1906), was appointed in April 1906 as Minister of the Interior and in July 1906 was named chairman of the Council of Ministers in which capacity he served until his assassination. He headed the Russian government at a time of massive protests by workers and peasants against the autocracy. Though firm in suppressing the protests and repressing revolutionary groups, he managed to introduce governmental, economic, and agrarian reforms aimed at improving conditions for farmers. Stolypin's policies irritated not only revolutionaries but many people in positions of power. After surviving several attempts on his life, Stolypin was shot by Dmitrii Bogrov, a leftist radical and agent of Okhrana, in Kiev on 14 September 1911, and died from his wounds four days later. The documents concern the course of the investigation, and the sentencing to death of Bogrov.

Beilis Case Papers=Dokumenty po delu Beilisa. State Archives of Kiev Oblast, Kiev. Minneapolis, MN: East View Information Services, 20--?.
The collection contains documents relating to the trial of Mendel Beilis (1874-1934) held in September and October 1913. Beilis, a Jewish clerk at a brick factory on the outskirts of Kiev, was accused of murdering a young Ukrainian boy, Andrei Iushchynskyi. The identity of the real persons responsible for the crime were known by police but the government--at that time debating a draft law on abolishing the Jewish Pale of Settlement--sought to convict a Jew and thus to incite mass anti-Semitic pogroms in Russia. Progressive members of the Russian and Ukrainian intelligentsia came out in support of Beilis, who was eventually acquitted by the 14-member jury. The documents cover the two and half-year investigation, the trial itself, and the events around it. The collection contains proceedings of the court, forensic reports, testimonies of all 355 witnesses, speeches by the prosecution and the defense, materials of the investigation, and articles from newspapers.
