Goshkevich, V. I.

Goshkevich was a talented amateur, who began studying astronomy but could not afford to stay in the university. He fell in love with the history and archeology of southern Russia and was ultimately personally very influential in developing the archives and museum in Kherson, where he also edited the city’s first newspaper. His commitment to Kherson included work at: the Kherson Province Statistical Committee, the Museum of Antiquities of Kherson Region, and the Kherson Archive Commission.
