CHRONICLE Petr Fomich Rokitsky (In Commemoration of the 100th Anniversary of His Birth) 1920, Rokitsky went to a gymnasium in Mozyr; in 1920, he entered an Experimental Exemplary School– Commune founded by Modest Nikolaevich Lepeshin- skii in the former squire’s estate Lemen’ near Cherikov. After graduation in 1921, Rokitsky accepted the invita- tion of the Lepeshinskii brothers to stay at school as a teacher of biology and physics. The whole atmosphere of this interesting school, which was genuinely innova- tive for that period, had a great influence on Rokitsky and determined his scientific interests for many years. In 1923, Rokitsky entered the Faculty of Science of Moscow State University. He studied at the department that was headed by N.K. Kol’tsov. When Rokitsky was still a student (in 1925), he began to work, under the supervision of S.S. Chetverikov, at the Laboratory of Genetics of the Institute of Experimental Biology, the head of which Kol’tsov then also was. In 1926–1927, Rokitsky participated in a large-scale study on natural populations Russian Journal of Genetics Springer Journals
