TAMBOV PROVINCE COMMISSIONER OF THE PROVISIONAL GOVERNMENT YU.V. DAVYDOV

Annotation

The research is devoted to the prominent statesman and public person Yuri Vasilyevich Davydov. His activity was studied as Tambov Provincial Commissioner of the Provisional Government in spring-summer of 1917. An attempt was made to give an objective assessment of the provincial commissioner Y.V. Davydov, which Soviet historiography has traditionally viewed as one-sided class approach. Sources for this writing became published documents, materials stored in the State Archives of the Tambov region, as well as Yuri Vasilyvich Davydov brother’s Alexander memoirs. The taken measures which were analyzed connected with maintenance of public order, strengthening the combat readiness of military units, the execution of orders of the Provisional Government, regulating and protecting the economy of the Tambov Province. The separate considerations were honored the attempts made by Yuri Vasilyevich Davydov to regulate trade and production of alcohol, activities in the field of housing and communal services. Particular attention is paid to the role of the Tambov Provincial Commissioner in creating land committees. It is proved that the activity of Yu.V. Davydov at the post of provincial commissioner was directed not so much to suppress the social movement, but rather on regulation of social and economic processes in the Tambov Province.
