The Naval Museum of the Northern Fleet congratulated senior researcher Alevtina Krivenko on the 50th anniversary of her labor activity. She has been working continuously at the Navy Museum since February 1971.

Alevtina Vasilievna was born at the height of the war in 1943 in the Murmansk region. It was in this year that the commander of the Northern Fleet, Arseny Golovko, gave an unusual order to Lieutenant Fyodor Drachkov: to collect everything that may have value for history. During the two years of the war, more than 1000 exhibits were accumulated, and in October 1946, on their basis, the Northern Fleet Museum was created, the collection of which today exceeds 8 thousand historical relics.

Alevtina Vasilievna is called the living encyclopedia of the museum. Over the years, she thoroughly studied all the historical material available there. It seems that she knows all the crews of wartime ships and can tell about every warrior of the North Sea. She corresponded with the families of the veterans. I met and made friends with many. Through her, photographs, documents, personal belongings were donated to the museum.

Today Alevtina Krivenko is collecting a book in memory of sailors who fought in the Arctic, and is working on the reprint of the book “The Northern Fleet in the Great Patriotic War.”
