Emanoff participated in the construction of St. Nicholas' Russian Orthodox Church (1932), on Rue Corneille, and was secretary of the Russian Engineering Society in 1934.

In 1936–1937, he worked at Unit Furniture Co. and Modern Homes, the company of Richard and Rudolf Paulick ("interior architects and designers, furniture, decorations, interior woodwork").

In the 1940s, Emanoff was Secretary of the Foreign Affairs and Migrations section of the Russian Emigrants' Association; he was suspected of being a Soviet agent.
