Immersion in the history of the native land

On April 7, the delegation of the Ussuriysk Society of Regional Studies visited the University Museum. Members of the Society study the history of the city and the region, meet interesting people, travel to the beautiful natural corners of Primorye, and make excursions to museums and enterprises of the Primorsky Territory. The essay by G.P. Yakunina «Descendants and Heirs» in the magazine «Far East» (No. 1 for 2015) brought local historians from Ussuriysk to our Museum. The essay was dedicated to the fate of the descendants of Gennady Nevelskoy and the meeting of the ANMSU delegation with the great-grandson of the admiral Nikolai Kukel-Kraevsky, which took place in Omsk in 2013. At a meeting with Ussuriysk ethnographers Galina Yakunina (a participant in a meeting with the descendants of Nevelskoy in Omsk), spoke about this, illustrating her story with photographs from the Kukel-Kraevsky family photo album. The guests of the University visited the Museum, where they got acquainted with the history of the University. Anatoly Batyushev, a graduate of the Ship Engineering Faculty 1972, was among the members of the delegation, who gladly showed off his graduation album and supplemented the story of the Museum director with his personal memories. Recently, interest in the figure of Admiral Nevelskoy has noticeably grown. In February of this year, by Internet voting, the residents of Kostroma chose the name of the famous countryman, a native of the Kostroma province Gennady Nevelskoy, for the Alley of Recognition in the city center. In the town of Kineshma, Ivanovo region, also associated with the name of Nevelskoy, a draft «monument to three admirals» including Gennady Nevelskoy was put forward for voting. The airport in Khabarovsk, which bears his name, is decorated with a large modern exposition about Nevelskoy. But in Vladivostok, the monument to Admiral Nevelskoy, the first monument in the city, opened back in 1897, is in disrepair… Calls to the city authorities are not heeded. The only «trustee» of the monument and the keeper of the memory of the admiral is the Maritime University, in whose Museum you can always learn about the history of the Nevelskoy family full of heroic deeds and tragedies.
