In Memoriam of Oleg Grigor'evich Kusakin

In Memoriam of Oleg Grigor'evich Kusakin Russian Journal of Marine Biology, Vol. 28, No. 1, 2002, pp. 73–75. Original Russian Text Copyright © 2002 by Biologiya Morya, the Editorial Board. OBITUARY In school, Oleg Kusakin was an excellent and very literate pupil. He was equally interested in biology, astronomy, literature, philosophy, and history. He cer- tainly would have become an excellent decoration for any of these sciences if to chose it as his main occupa- tion, but he chose the biology. In 1948, Oleg Grigor’evich entered the Department of Biology and Soil at the Leningrad State University. He chose biology to be as far away from political activ- ities as possible. The period of his university years was a dark age in Russian science, a time of obscurantism and politicization of everything (let us remember the dishonorable session of the Soviet Academy of Agri- cultural Science in 1948 and the events that followed). Therefore, instead of the Department of Darwinism, which was the first choice of Oleg Grigor’evich, he entered less political Department of Marine Hydrobiol- ogy headed by Prof. E.F. Gur’yanova. He actively worked in the department starting from the very first year of his university life, preparing important scientific reports and processing, under Russian Journal of Marine Biology Springer Journals
