A. Oreshnikov was an historian and numismatist. He was an employee of the Historical Museum in Moscow and involved in the review of articles and documents from the Imperial palaces received in the Kremlin Armory after the revolution until his death in 1933. His diary entries in 1922, and beyond, are fascinating with details when opening crates.

I have only had time to translate portions of the diary for my Winter Palace research. He is an inspiring man, although heartbreaking to read his navigating the political landscape in the 1920s.

Fine, but where can one access his original Russian diaries?
Are they on-line anywhere, or only in manuscript form in an archive?

Thank you.
