Nikolai Alexandrovich Morozov

Nikolai Alexandrovich Morozov (1854-1946) was a revolutionary, social figure, scholar, historical revisionist, author, and scientist. He was also an honorary member of the chemistry, physics, and mathematics department of the Academy of Sciences of the USSR.

Some of the works of Morozov can be found online here, here, and here. A special thanks goes out to the WordPress user “Owen” for placing all three of the links above onto Ctruth’s radar. A massive archive of his works can be found here.[8] More links to his works and information about him can be found here.[9]

He was alive during the Bolshevik Revolution, and while he was happy that the old government was falling, he did not agree with the impositions of the new Bolshevik government.[7]


Morozov’s Biography

1854, June 25/July 7: He was born in Borok, Mologsky district of the Yaroslavl province, Russia.[3], [7]

1869: He began attending the Second Moscow Gymnasium after being education at home by his mother, bonnets, governess, and governor.[3] He did not do well at that school and ended up getting expelled.[7]

1871-1872: He volunteered at Moscow University.[3], [7]

1874: He joined the Tchaikovsky Circle and took part in the “going to the people” populist movement.[3] He traveled to Geneva, Switzerland as a representative of Tchaikovsky.[7]

1875: He joined the International Workingmen’s Association. He returned to Russia and was arrested because of his potential involvement with revolutionary movements.[3], [7]

1876: He was released on bail and then was arrested again.[3]

1877: His poetry was published in ‘From Behind Prison Bars’.[3]

1878: “193’s Trial” occurred and Morozov was set free.[7]


1879: Land and Liberty split into two groups and Morozov rejected the continual use of propaganda for bringing about social change.[2] He became a founder ‘Narodnaya Volya’ (People’s Will).[7]

1880: He travelled to London and met Karl Marx for the first time.[3] One motivation for this travel was in part due to the disagreements he had with his contemporary revolutionists “about the role of terror in the political struggle”.[7]

1881, January: He was arrested with his wife at the Russian border for attempting to enter illegally.[3], [7]

1882: He was sentenced to prison for life “as part of the “Process of Twenty””.[7]

1882-1884: He was imprisoned in the Peter and Paul Fortress.[7]

1884-1905: He was imprisoned in Shlisselburg. While imprisoned in these two locations, he wrote 26 volumes of manuscripts which included commentaries on issues with a number of sciences. He also learned 11 languages which he previously did not know.[7]

1905, October 28th: He was given amnesty and freedom.[3], [7]

1907: He married Ksenia Alexandrovna Borislavskaya.[3], [7]

1908: He joined the newly founded masonic lodge “Polyarnaya Zvezda” (“l’Etoile Polaire”),(“Polar Star).[4, p.107-108], [5, p.468] According to a different source, Morozov was a member of the “St.-Petersburg”s Dawn”, Grand Orient of Russia’s Peoples. The source does give a disclaimer at the beginning saying “The following list of names is derived from the writings of a number of Russian authors and is presented with no guarantee of accuracy” and so I don’t know how valid the claim is.[6] It appears to me that Morozov being a member of the Polar Star lodge is a better established claim than the St. Petersburg’s Dawn one.

1907-1917: He lectured in “Petersburg and Moscow (repeatedly), Kiev, Yuryev, Dvinsk, Riga, Kovno, Vilno, Grodno, Elizavetgrad, Nikopol, Yekaterinoslav, Kremenchug, Poltava, Kharkov, Yaroslavl, Rybinsk, Poshekhonye , Mologa, Vologda, Taganrog, Rostov-on-Don. Novocherkassk, Simferopol, Sevastopol, Kostroma, Perm, Yekaterinburg, Nizhny Novgorod, Saratov, Penza, Samara, Simbirsk, Tiflis, Baku, Kutaisi, Arkhangelsk, Tyumen, Tomsk, Novo-Nikolaev, Omsk, Krasnoyarsk, Irkutsk, Verkhneudinsk, Chita -on-Amur, Khabarovsk, Harbin, Nikolsk-Ussuriisky, Vladivostok”.[3]

1941: There was a documentary released about him.[3]

1942: The Nazi’s attack on Leningrad (where Morozov was working) inspired him to join the fight against the Nazi and to defend Leningrad. At first the military did not allow Morozov to join but he was persistent and eventually they did enroll him in the front line. He joined the Volkhov Front and had around a dozen confirmed kills.[7]
