I formulated the aims of my research as the following: -- to discover specific ties between charitable organizations such as the Ford Foundation, government, and society in the USA during the Cold War era, using a case study of Free Russia Fund / East European Fund; to study an institutional history of Free Russia Fund / East European Fund, its organization, financing, functioning, and liquidation; to clarify the role of Russian émigrés in establishing and maintaining different enterprises, supported by Free Russia Fund / East European Fund; to study general tendencies of the development of Russian-language community in the USA in the 1950s and the impact of American philanthropy on it.
