On the 100th anniversary of the Ilmen Reserve
"It was recently, it was a long time ago…" (from a song)
50 years ago in one great state, which is not now, Ilmensky reserve lived peacefully. It was created in 1920 g. by decree V.I.. Lenin and proudly bore his name.
Reserve directors for previous 50 years changed often. 23-m became a young and energetic V.A.. Koroteev, which started work in January 1970 g. A year ago he defended his Ph.D. thesis, worked as Scientific Secretary of the Institute of Geology and Geochemistry in Sverdlovsk. He had so much strength and energy, that I was able to take part in the winter sports day of the peoples of Russia, which took place in January 1970 g in Miass, after running on skis 20 km over time is better than the 1st category. He was sent to Miass to stabilize and improve the work of the reserve., in which then there was no longer a single candidate of sciences, there was a very small scientific team.
