Detailed annotationAn application, dated 07.10.1936, by Ivan Andrianovich Bagmut, prisoner of the Ukhta-Pechora Camp, to Ia.M. Moroz, head of the Ukhta-Pechora Camp, in which he requests to be involved in the writing of a book “about the exploitation of the natural resources and the industrialisation of the Northern Region”. The application is made in connection with a decision by the head of the Ukhta-Pechora Camp, taken in June 1936, to publish a collection of materials about the industrialisation of the Ukhta-Pechora Region on the occasion of the 20th Anniversary of the October Revolution (it has not been possible to identify the date and text of the decision). I.A. Bagmut reports that he has experience as a writer-essayist and that he is the author of five books. It is known that a central buro for the preparation of the collection was set up under the Department for Culture and Education of the Ukhta-Pechora Camp, but the collection was not published. There is no record of a response to this application; it is not known whether or not Bagmut was allowed to work on the book. In addition, the application also contains the information that in October, 1936, prisoner Bagmut was transferred to Kniazh-Pogost in order to collect samples as a member of a geological party surveying the Ust’-Vym’ – Chibyu railway-line. The document was transferred to the Museum from the archive of the “Progress” factory, the successor to the OGPU water-mine [Promysel] No.2 (Settlement Vodniy).
