Mikhail Mikhailovich Ermolaev, one of the most prominent Soviet arctic scientists of the 1920s and 1930s, embarked on his arctic career almost by accident. On 23 November 1924, while a student at the Petrograd Polytechnical Institute, he was actively involved in rescuing people in danger of being swept to their deaths during the Petrograd Flood. Soaked and exhausted, Ermolaev developed pneumonia, which subsequently developed into tuberculosis. He survived but was advised to move to a drier climate.

Abstract: Mikhail Mikhailovich Ermolaev (pronounced Yermolayev) -a Russian pre- and post-war geographer and geologist-is not a well-known scientist, neither in an international nor a Russian context. But he was an outstanding person in the lives of the many people he met during his long academic career. His difficult life in many ways reflects Russian scholarship during all stages of the Soviet era, from the Bolshevik Revolution to its dissolution, including the terrible years of Stalin’s reign of terror against academic society.
