George Margoulies (1902-1972) was a Russian-born author and translator. He lived primarily in France from 1919 until his death in 1972 and obtained degrees from various French institutions. Margoulies was a lecturer at Ecole des Langues Orientales, Paris, from 1926 until1939. He was sent on an educational mission to China by the French educational ministry in 1930. From 1945 until 1966 he worked as an international official and interpreter to the UN Secretary's office. Margoulies published numerous books and articles on history and literature in French, English, German, Spanish, Russian, and Chinese. He also read Latin and Portuguese. The collection includes correspondence (in French, English, German, Spanish, Russian, and Chinese), notes, and manuscripts of Margoulies's translations. There are also ten notebooks of Margoulies's diaries dating from 1918 to 1925.
