Legacy of Kosta St. Pavlović, which was donated to the Historical Archives of Belgrade by his son Stevan, includes diaries kept in the period between 1930 and 1934, and between 1944 and 1954. The diaries are useful to the researchers interested in Yugoslav history in the interwar period and during the Second World War. They also provide information on the life of an individual who continued to live in the emigration after 1945.

The diaries kept in the period when Kosta Pavlović was personal secretary of Vojislav Marinković, 1930–1932, represent important historical source for the researchers and wider audience. Information provided in the diaries is precise and accurate. For this period, Pavlović’s journal provides precious information on various events and individuals, including information on relationship between king Aleksandar and distinguished individuals of the 6th January regime, relationships between former radicals, democrats and Petar Živković; civil activities, students and extremist opposition activities, and government's treatment of them; intended changes of the Constitution, proclamation of new laws and elections held in 1931; information on activities within Ministry of Foreign Affairs and diplomatic service; relations between Yugoslavia and states in the Little Entente, official visits of Vojislav Marinković to Athens and Warsaw; work of Yugoslav delegations, foreign officials and diplomats in the League of Nations, on the Conference on Disarmament in Europe and other international conferences; international reactions regarding the proposal of Aristide Briand on European States Federation, etc.

Since the publication offers information on numerous individuals, institutions and events, the Journal is preceded by an introductory study meant to make easier to the wider audience to read and follow various topics described by the author of the diary. The study is dedicated to the changes in Yugoslav government and society, which occurred after proclamation of the 6ht January regime and to the domestic and international reactions in the period between 1929 and 1932.
