Telegrams: Diaghilev and members of the Ballets Russes

Scope and Content

Telegrams to and from Diaghilev and other persons and artistes involved in the Ballets Russes, relating to the day to day management and running of the company.


The telegrams were housed in 5 large files and arranged in chronological order by Ekstrom during her custody of them. This order has been maintained. Where additional telegrams have been discovered in other parts of the collection, these have been integrated with the main files as far as possible, apart for those to which which no date can be assigned. These are in a separate file at the end of the series.
