Help Wanted: Russian readers




Last Friday, we received from a local practitioner three Russian LPs (yes, that's LP as in vinyl records). The materials were presented to Ralph Crawshaw, MD, on the occasion of his trip to Russia in the 1970s on a US-USSR scholar exchange program. Dr. Crawshaw neither speaks nor reads Russian, and sadly, we have no Russian readers on staff here at Historical Collections & Archives (we cover a lot of languages, but not this one!)

So, for any volunteers out there, here are scans of the front covers of the three albums (click on each for larger images). We'd love to hear from you if you know what these are!
