Platon Tchoumachenko
1935 - 2019


Dr Platon Tchoumatchenco, of Sofia, Bulgaria describes himself as “a Bulgarian geologist of White Russian ancestry”. He would like to collect a list of all geologists of White Russian origin, from all generations after the Civil War (between the White and Red Russian armies) which was followed by victory of the Red Army and the subsequent White Russian exodus. “Many [White Russians] became geologists and worked in their new countries”, Tchoumachenko writes, “I would like to commemorate the contributions they made to their adopted countries’ geology.”
