Yes, if you have access to the command line on the server, use:

$MAILMAN/bin/list_members -fp $LISTNAME

where $MAILMAN is the path to your mailman installation, and $LISTNAME is 
the name of your list.

$MAILMAN/bin/list_members --help

will tell you some options that you can use.

You can use "sync_members" to restore the list.
