HISTORY OF CHEMISTRY AND CHEMICAL TECHNOLOGY Academician Pavel Ivanovich Walden (on 140th Anniversary of His Birthday) In the early XX century, two positions were pro- vided at the St. Petersburg Academy of Sciences for ordinary academicians in chemistry. Since 1886 these positions were occupied by F.F. Beilstein (1838 1906) and N.N. Beketov (1827 1911). After Beil- stein’s death, his position remained vacant for a cer- tain time, and in 1916, P.I. Walden, professor of chemistry of Riga Polytechnic Institute, was elected member of the Academy of Sciences. In a representa- tion signed by a number of scientists, including Beke- tov, V.I. Vernadsky, and A.P. Karpinsky, Walden’s achievements were noted, in the first place, in stereo- chemistry of organic compounds. As an exception, Walden was allowed to temporarily remain in Riga and to come to St. Petersburg only to take part in ses- sions of the Academy of Sciences. World War I, which began in August 1914, resulted in that Walden did not move Russian Journal of Applied Chemistry Springer Journals
