Although its name and more importantly its affiliation with the Soviet Ministry of Transportation may suggest a rather boring undertaking, it could not be further from the truth. And despite the fact that it started as a small newspaper dealing primarily with industry news, over time due to its growing popularity it became a nationally distributed newspaper attracting top talent from the burgeoning Soviet literary scene. Some of the authors and journalists whose works appeared on the pages of Gudok were the famous Soviet journalist and satirist Ilya Ilf, the writers Mikhail Zoshchenko, Lev Slavin, Sasha Krasny, Alexander Kabakov and many others. At the height of its popularity in 1970s it had a daily circulation of 700,000.
Although it is the most complete run available, select issues are missing.

The Novoe Russkoe Slovo (NRS) digital archive provides access to issues of the most important and influential Russian émigré publication in the United States. Novoe Russkoe Slovo (New Russian Word) was initially published as Russkoe Slovo in 1910 and displayed overt pro-Communist leanings. However, a decade later, in 1920, with the influx of refugees from the Russian revolution, the newspaper underwent nominal and ideological changes. First it changed the name by adding the word “Novoe” (or “New”) to the original title and secondly and perhaps most importantly it shed its pro-Communist sympathies and established itself as the premier newspaper of the Russian émigré community in New York and beyond. Many prominent writers and scholars of the Russian émigré community, both in the USA and Europe, contributed to the paper. In the years of the Cold War, when the freedom of expression was suppressed in the Soviet Union, NRS published the Soviet authors whose work was banned in Russia.
Although this is the most comprehensive representation of NRS to date, at this moment not all issues are available for digitizing, therefore there are some gaps in the print run, especially lacking are the initial years of the Russkoe Slovo, as well as the last years of the run.
