Dmitry Nikolayevich Anuchin portrait (1843 - 1923) was a Russian
anthropologist, ethnographist, archaeologist, and geographer. He
was a member of the Russian GeographicaL Society and convened the
ethnographic sub-section of the Twelfth Congress of Russian Natural
Scientists and Physicians held in Moscow in 1909. Here he pushed
for the professionalisation of ethnography as compared to
missionaries and amateurs. However he opposed Lev Sternberg's call
for the establishment of an imperial bureau of ethnography, fearing
that the discipline would become too tied up with the Tsarist
bureaucracy. However in 1915 he did become involved with the
Commission for the Study of the Natural Productive Forces of Russia
(KEPS) which assisted in the wartime mobilisation of resources in
the Russian Empire. He argued for a second government-sponsored
commission to study the population along the lines of the American
Bureau of Ethnology. The Russian Academy of Sciences dismissed his
proposal as unrealisable, but did establish within KEPS a Committee
for the Description of Russia by Region.
