Abstract:

Thayer's diary of the Mission describes its progress from its official formation in St. Paul through its delivery of 70 tons of medical and surgical supplies to the Russian army and its efforts to co-ordinate relief activities, to its return to the United States.

Topics include the journey to Russia, including travel on the Trans-Siberian Railroad, the activities of Mission leader William Boyce Thompson, anti-Semitic sentiments concerning the Revolution and the Bolsheviks, conditions in Petrograd, difficulty in co-ordinating relief agencies, work of German agents against Allied efforts, General Lavr Kornilov, the fall of Riga and chaos in the Russian army, scurvy, and disagreements with a Mr. McCarthy of the Phipps Institute for Tuberclosis.

Also a week long stay in Moscow during fighting between Bolsheviks and loyal troops, accomplishments of the Mission, departure on the army controlled railroad, and return home.

He also mentions briefly conditions in Romania, the Kurds and Armenia, Manchu "cowboys," the Polish Army, anti-American meetings, Lady Muriel Paget, a speech by Leon Trotsky, Madam Catherine Breshkovsky and fears concerning the Revolution.

With the diary are two smaller accounts of the Mission's week in Moscow.
