Глеб кошанский вариант

Nikolay Gleb-Koshanskiy (17.09.1921-27.2000) - the Staff officer of the Soviet Army, Holder of military decorations and medals, including the Order of A.Nevskiy, a founder and director of the museum of the port of Odesa named after De Wollant.

 

Gleb-Koshanskiy came to work in the port of Odesa in 1961, having started his career as a tallyman. He also worked as the Chief of the warehouse, led the complex of social amenities.

 

After retiring the General Manager of the port N.Pavlyuk suggested him to revive the museum of the port. This was an unexpected proposal, but  Gleb-Koshanskiy got carried away by this idea. Within a year he was a regular visitor of an archive, a museum, Gorky Library.

 

When Nikolay familiarized with rich materials from the history of the port he realized that he can’t remain silent and he must tell it to the port workers. He began to publish brochures, newspaper articles, which were the basis for the book "The port and Odessa," which was published in 1994 on the 200th anniversary of the port and the city.

 

Being engaged in search of materials on port’s history and the first builders of the city, he went to the archives in Moscow and St. Petersburg. Gleb-Koshanskiy found priceless materials, found the tomb of De Wollant. He initiated creation and installation of the busts in memory of De Wollant and.De Ribas.
