Paper Abstract

The history of science in Siberia has begun long before the establishment of the Siberian Branch of the national Academy f Sciences. The following fact confirmed this statement: 1) the foundation ofthe Tomsk Imperial University in 1878 and after this the foundation of the Tomsk Technological Institute in 1896; 2) the foundation in 1922 in Tomsk of the Institute of Applied Physics of the Siberian Technological Institute ( as a social service), which was reorganized in 1928 into the Siberian Physico-Technical Institute (SPTI) as a result of enormous work of physicists, and first of all, professor Vladimir Dmitrievich Kuznetsov, the founder of SPTI and its permanent director from 1928 to 1933 and then from 1938 to 1960. Right until the beginning of establishment of the Siberian Branch of the USSR Academy of Sciences in 1957 the city of Tomsk, undoubtedly, was the first in Siberia in the progress of science, but, nevertheless, a decision was made to establish the science centers of the Siberian Branch of the USSR Academy of Sciences in Novosibirsk, Irkutsk and Yakutsk based on the West-Siberian, East-Siberian and the Yakut Branches of the USSR Academy of Sciences as well as on a blank pace in Krasnoyarsk and not in Tomsk through the fault ofthe administration of the Tomsk region of those days.
