Background. In the history of any university, an important role is played by a person who takes on the main job of creating a new educational institution. In the history of Samara’s first university, this role fell to the famous scientist Pavel Ilyich Mitrofanov. Professor Mitrofanov did much not only for the domestic science, but also for Samara, being the first rector of the newly opened educational institution. However, the personality of Professor Mitrofanov, like his work, was not previously the subject of a special study, which determines the relevance and scientific novelty of this study. The aim of the work is to study the biographical data and the contribution of the first rector of Samara’s first university to the formation of higher education in the Samara region.
Materials and methods. A number of sources were used to solve the research problems. First of all, these are archival materials of the State Archive of the Samara Region, since no works specifically dedicated to the biography of the first rector of the Samara Polytechnic were found. As the main methods were used methods of objectivity, historicism and chronological method, which together gave the opportunity to achieve the goal.
Results. As a result of the work, the biographical data of P. I. Mitrofanov, the first rector of the Samara Polytechnic, and his contribution to the development of higher education in the Samara region.
Conclusions. As a result of the study, it was concluded that Professor Pavel Ilyich Mitrofanov was the main engine and executor of the project for the construction and opening of the first higher educational institution in Samara.
