Wall Memorial to Nobel Prizewinner Set in St. Petersburg

Economics Nobel Laureate, Leonid Kantorovich (1912-1986) applied his mathematical gift in the most varied spheres of life: from the Soviet atomic project to reducing waste in metal sawing and optimizing taxi service. 

      The commemorative plaque in his honor financed by the St. Petersburg State University has been set on the wall of the house (32/1, Bolshoy Avenue), where Leonid Kantorovich lived from the age of 11. This is from where the 14-year-old boy went to classes in the Leningrad University, which he graduated from at the age of 18. Right after graduation he started teaching at this higher education institution, having already over 10 scientific efforts published.

      The scientist's bust from the personal collection of his foster daughter Irina and her spouse Josef Romanovsky served as the prototype for the bas-relief of Leonid Kantorovich in the wall memorial.
