About RGAE
Formerly known as TsGANKh SSSR, the centralized archive for postrevolutionary records relating to the economy, was renamed RGAE in 1992. The archive is the principal repository for all-union records relating to economic and fiscal matters, including those of central agencies of economic administration of the USSR from 1917 to 1991 on different levels of the economy—from local offices and trusts to the people’s commissariats (narkomats) and ministries and state committees throughout the USSR. The first major complex of fonds comprises records and statistical materials of state commissariats and later ministries, state committees such as the State Statistical Committee (Goskomstat), planning agencies such as Gosplan, and other central governmental agencies and organizations. The second large complex of records in RGAE combines fonds of manufacturing organizations, which were under the authority of the central administrative agencies for the national economy. A third complex of records is represented by fonds of scientific and research institutions (NII). Still another complex comprises fonds of central administrative organs for producers’ cooperatives and consumers’ cooperative societies. The archive has also accumulated a large complex of personnel files and personal papers, including those of leading functionaries in all branches of the national economy.
