Abstract
The focus of the article is the life and work of Dmitry A. Olderogge (1903—1987), a founder of African studies in Russia (the Soviet Union), a specialist in ethnography, linguistics and history of Africa. The author shares memoires about his relations with the scientist and the atmosphere of the Stalin and post-Stalin period in the Soviet Union that had a great influence on scientific activities and personal lives of researchers at that time. The author suggests to consider the circumstances of the epoch when scientists did their researches while judging their achievements.
