Faculty of Physics and Mathematics of Saratov State University (1917–1945)

Abstract

The article systematizes historical data on the opening in 1917 and the subsequent development of the Physics and Mathematics Department of Saratov University during 1917–1945. Professor Vladimir D. Zernov, Master of Physics, a student of the world famous professor of Moscow University Peter N. Lebedev was elected the first Dean of the Faculty of Physics and Mathematics on September 5, 1917. The further development of the faculty was held with the participation of leading Russian scientists. When writing the article we used the reports of the Council of the Imperial Nikolai Saratov University dated 1916, various historical and biographical materials, family archives, photographs of 1918 and 1936, characterizing the activity of the Physics and Mathematics Faculty until 1945. In 1945 the Faculty of Physics and Mathematics was divided into the Department of Physics and the Department of Mechanics and Mathematics. Today these faculties are leading educational structures of the Volga region in teaching students in physics, mathematics and information technology.
