With regard to the upcoming 150th anniversary of the Tobolsk Historical and Architectural Museum-Reserve, events connected with its centenary in 1970 were reconstructed. For the first time, collected publications by Prof. P. I. Roshchevsky (University of Tyumen) were used as a source.
This research aims to clarify the museum’s role and a particular researcher in the socio-cultural sphere. The goal is to understand how the centenary of the museum was celebrated, how the conditions of Soviet reality were reflected in these celebrations, what was the support of the Siberian scientific centers in the Tyumen Region in the late 1950s-1970s.
This has required comparative and comparative-historical methods, which allow a thorough study of the problem in the context of specific sociocultural and political conditions.
This article shows collaboration between Prof. Roshchevsky and the Tyumen museums in arranging the conference. The conference showed the intellectual and scientific values of the museum. The main attention was paid to the topical problems of the history of the Ob north. The arrangement of the conference can be regarded as the first steps in the evolution of the museum from a cultural and educational institution to a research and development center.
The long and complicated history of the publication of the conference papers shows that the materials have not lost their scientific value. The professional historians of the Tyumen Teachers Training Institute contributed to the shaping of the humanitarian community in the region.
