The First Orders Awarded to St. Petersburg Academicians (2006)


google translate: The promotion of another person's order or some other sign of the difference reflects the recognition of its own special merits to the Motherland at the military or civil duties, in public or charitable activities. Curious to see how the state assesses the scientific activity, when and for what scientists were recognized and awarded the highest decorations. The award honors scientists - one of the parties to the relationship of science and government. Especially interesting to see this on the example of the XVIII century, a critical period of development of domestic science. Of the 112 full members (academicians and associate), the St. Petersburg Academy of Sciences in the XVIII century. state awards marked 15 academicians, accounting for 13% of the total composition of the Academy at the time. Moreover, four scholars were awarded twice. This - Kraft, Inohodtsev, Ozeretskovsky and Pallas. The award honors went to the last quarter of XVIII century. Thus, almost 60 years after the establishment of the Academy of Sciences have been awarded the first state awards.
