We continue studying history of Ukrainian science, technology, and industry, and this time we will talk about an outstanding person. In our fund of rare books we keep periodicals of Emperor’s Russian Technological Society, ‘Publications of IRTS’. It is known that activity of the Society played a crucial role in creating a line of higher polytechnic schools in Russian Empire in the end of XIX century. For a long time P.A. Kochubei (1825-1892) carried out the duties of the head of Society and chief editor of the Publications. He was the descendant of the Cossacks, soldier, honorary member of the Mineralogical Society, scientist and chemist, historian of technology, explorer of the agriculture, philanthropist and public person.
We dedicate to him the next lecture of our cycle «Outstanding personalities of Ukrainian science and technology. P.A. Kochubei (195 years from date of birth)».
