abstract

Details of the development of studies, the circle of communication and the subsequent fate of colleagues of Th. Dobrzhansky during his work in Kyiv in 19201924 are considered. Information is given on the stages of professional growth and affiliations of the young scientist (5 key positions) and his main scientific achievements during his work in Kyiv (5 positions), which became the basis for further rise to worldwide recognition. The only known collective photo of the Kyiv period is analysed in detail with attention to the location and colleagues showed on the photo. The photo was unambiguously taken in the Zoological Laboratory of Kyiv Polytechnic Institute. This is evidenced by the details of the entourage and comparison of images of stuffed animals in the photo of 1924 and 1902. Detailed information is given about each of Dobrzhanskys colleagues showed in the photo: M. Greze, S. Ivanov, Y. Kerkis, L. Kossakovsky, O. Lebedev, M. Levitt, and G. Shpet. With the exception of Dobrzhansky, Prof. Lebedev and M. Greze, the team in the photo can be identified as a group of zoologists, most of whom just planned to became or already were students. Among Dobrzhanskys students or junior colleagues, only Y. Horoshchenko is absent in the photo. All of them remained in contact with Dobrzhansky after his departure to Petrograd and New York.
