Valentyn Ivanenko


On the basis of the own memoirs and observations it is considered some plot lines of life and creative biography of K.I. Poznyakov – Dnipropetrovsk professor of history, Honored Worker of the High Schoolof the Ukrainian SSR. An attempt is made to distinguish the most characteristic and peculiar facets of the scientist outstanding personality, emphasizing his long-term and constructive interaction with colleagues of the local classical university, which was always for him (as for a graduate of the historical faculty) not only Alma mater, but also a source of constant intellectual inspiration and growth for almost all conscious life. It is emphasized that the researcher left a significant scientific heritage in the area of the history of the Civil War of 1918–1920 and other problems of the national past, occupying a prominent place in the historiographical process of the second half of the 20th century. He was a high-class professional, authoritative organizer of science and education in the higher educational establishments of Pridniprovʼya, a wise mentor, a wonderful lecturer-speaker, a harmoniously integral, decent, modest man, with his values and ideals in the spirit of the then communist representations in the USSR.
