This edition first collected comprehensive data on Ukrainian immigration to the USA. It was based on all kinds of printed materials published by the Ukrainian National Union departments and was edited by historian and journalist Luka Myshuga (1887-1955). He moved to the USA in 1921 to carry out assignments of the Western Ukrainian National Republic and was actively engaged in the diaspora life. Since 1933, he was the chief editor of the largest periodical of UNU, Svoboda, as well as Ukrainian Weekly, Jubilee Almanac, etc.
The book contains all Ukrainian communities that existed in 1936 (listed by city). The compilers indicated the number of members, history of establishment, trade, business and religious activity. The text was supplemented with numerous group photographs of Ukrainian communities. Names of the people depicted on photographs are printed among information of certain communities.
Apart from America, the edition included Svoboda articles on Ukrainian emigrants living in Brazil, Canada, on Hawaii islands and the Philippines.
