The correspondence between one of the founders of the Russian archaeology Vasiliy Alexeevich Gorodtsov (1869—1945) and David Natanovich Lev (1905—1969), an archaeologist from Leningrad, has brought to us valuable information about the history of the Institute of Anthropology and Ethnology in the 1930s. This information adds a lot to what we knew from published and archived official documents. As early as 1970 P. I. Boriskovsky and A. P. Okladnikov noted that V. A. Gorodtsov’s and D. N. Lev’s letters to each other “would undoubtedly serve as an important sourse for every historian of the Russian archaeology”. The letters reflect feelings and psychology of both scholars, as well as their attitudes towards various events that took place in social and academic life. The texts are reproduced after the originals stored in the Department of Written Records of the State Historical Museum.
