In 2002, Paul S. Hall and Dorothy F. Hall donated 104 Russian and Ukrainian posters dating from 1917-1921 to the Slavic and Baltic Division, effectively doubling the Library's holding of early Soviet posters. The posters had belonged to a Hall relative, Benjamin Blattner (1890-1956), an investigative accountant who served with Governor Thomas E. Dewey and District Attorney Frank S. Hogan combating racketeering and fraud in New York State. Like Harold M. Fleming (1900-1971), whose collection is also owned by the Library, Blattner had worked in famine relief in the early Soviet era, in his case, with the Joint Distribution Committee. In December 2003, Alex Rabinovich donated thirty-four additional original posters from the Russian Revolution and Civil War further enhancing these holdings. The collection contains examples by internationally-recognized graphic artists such as Dmitrii Moor (Orlov) (1883-1946) and Viktor Deni (Denisov) (1893-1946).
