Yu. Gracheva. The Dorpat School District in the correspondence of Emperor Alexander I and Professor G. F. Parrot // Petersburg historical journal, no. 3, 2022, pp. 33–47
The article is devoted to the initial period of the implementation of educational reforms in the Dorpat School District, in which the first rector of the University, professor Georg Friedrich Parrott, was directly involved. The correspondence of Emperor Alexander I and Professor G. F. Parrot, introduced into scientific circulation, allows us to highlight the range of issues that aroused the greatest attention of the Dorpat professor and which required the personal intervention of the emperor. Thanks to the personal friendship that existed between the Russian emperor and Parrot, the university management was able to receive not only additional funding from the treasury for the construction of a complex of university buildings, but also to achieve the inclusion of Baltic educational institutions in the general imperial system of management of educational institutions, excluding the direct influence of the Ostsee nobility on them.
