In 1922, as a result of a bloody civil war, a large number of Russians who opposed Communism found themselves living in exile. As political refugees cut off from their homeland, many remained defiant, convinced in the justice of their cause, and determined to persevere. This comprehensive eleven-frame exhibit tells the history of ethnic Russian émigrés during the seven decades of Communist rule in their homeland. It includes propaganda, scouting, and charity labels issued by Russians in many of the countries where they found refuge. Among its highlights are some of the earliest issues of the 1920s White Army veteran charity vignettes, local post stamps of post-World War II DP camps, the propaganda issues of "Free Russia" and the National Alliance of Russian Solidarists, Orthodox church labels, vignettes of philatelic societies and youth organizations, and much more.

The title "Watchmen at the Gates" derives in part from the book by Mariana Tax Choldin, "A Fence Around the Empire." Even though there was indeed a fence, there remained ways in and out - the gates - and people who had to guard them. Purpose of the exhibit 1) To show the three legs of the Imperial Russian foreign-books-and-periodicals censorship tripod (Customs, the Foreign Censorship Committee and the Postal Censorship) and the kinds of literature imports against which they were targeted; 2) demonstrate the sweep and pervasiveness of the censorship by providing examples of the individuals and institutions that were subjected to such scrutiny; 3) examine the quirks and foibles that reduced the effectiveness of this censorship and put the government at odds with its citizenry and foreigners in the country, and 4) present a large, nearly comprehensive selection of censor marks and notations.
