Abstract:

This volume of Memorabilia Zoologica contains Benedykt Dybowski’s unpublished letters to Janusz Domaniewski from 1919 to 1920. It is a direct continuation of the previous issue of Memorabilia containing correspondence of these scholars from the years 1917–1918. It is also part of the project to publish the letters and documents of Benedykt Dybowski kept in the collections of the Museum and Institute of Zoology of the Polish Academy of Sciences. The letters written by Dybowski during the siege of Lwów and the Polish-Ukrainian war are an invaluable document of the beginnings of the Second Polish Republic, as well as a description and an attempt to analyse the situation of the Polish intelligentsia and the establishment of state institutions.They are also a very important source of knowledge about the history of scientific institutions. The Dzieduszycki Museum and university collections in Lwów, exposed to artillery fire, illustrate the situation of scientific institutions during the war. We also learn from them about the beginnings of the Branickis’ Museum in Warsaw, which were previously unknown to historians. The history of creating new scientific institutions, staffing departments and university policy at the beginning of the Second Polish Republic was also critically discussed. They show the scholar’s commitment to popularizing Esperanto, the discussions about the universal language among the Lwów intelligentsia, and the naive hope that this “universal language” would lead the world to lasting peace. Dybowski repeatedly returns to the concept of rebuilding the Polish State, which he saw as a voluntary federation of nations belonging to the First Polish Republic.The letters published in this volume are a valuable contribution to the biography of both naturalists, as well as to the history of Polish scientific institutions. The correspondence supplements the works devoted to the history of Warsaw zoological collections, mainly of the Zoological Cabinet of the University of Warsaw.
