Amherst Center for Russian Culture
The Amherst Center for Russian Culture was created by Amherst College in Amherst, Massachusetts after the gift of a major collection of Russian books, manuscripts, periodicals and ephemera by Thomas P. Whitney in 1991. The Center has a particularly strong collection of works by and relating to Russian emigres. Subsequent major gifts of material have come from Dmitri Tarasenkov and George Ivask.
The center has a gallery for the display of over 50 works of Russian art from the collection that was donated to the college by Thomas P. Whitney.
