Not many people know that in the 50-ies of the last century before the current main building of the Tauride state agrotechnological University named after Dmitry Motor was installed the sculpture “a Student with a book.” She showed the image of the student of those years and lasted until 70-ies. Unique photo appeared at the disposal of RIA Melitopol.
It should be noted that the area in front of Misham (Melitopol Institute of agricultural mechanization) looked radically different. There was a square, fenced with stone fence. Honorary citizen of Melitopol, Professor Igor Gray, who for a long time was the rector of the University, recalled:
Remember that was a square, planted with poplars and Acacias, in the 70-ies of the last century the most part of trees was found in an emergency. By the way, at this time, the Institute significantly expanded. In 1974 was built the student dining room, 1975-76 years – library to 1977, he built the club, and after some time, he was elevated 10-storey education building (today’s building 2). It was during the construction of the building began the demolition of the Park. Trees uprooted by the students of the military Department. Instead of the old square, the architect Vasily Dobrovolsky developed the new draft. So we see it now.
