In the first half of the 20th century, Russian emigrants in China created a network of higher education institutions based on the Russian pre-revolutionary education system. By analyzing periodical publications and memoirs, we can trace the history of major institutions: Harbin School of Law, Harbin Polytechnic University, State Higher Teacher Training Institute, Institute of Oriental and Commercial Sciences. These institutions were also the cradle for Chinese intelligentsia, with Russian professors successfully teaching future engineers, lawyers, orientalist scholars, teachers, theologians and musicians.
