Abstract

The article objective is to study the personnel policy of the Russian government aiming to form the corps for regional heads in Yakutia (1805-1852). Nowadays, extensive studies are carried out in regard to the institution of governorship in the Russian Empire, but there is still no special investigation of the institution of regional heads, which operated on the outskirts of the country. The state paid special attention to the margin territories taking into account its regional peculiarities (geopolitical, economic, ethno-demographic, etc.). Undoubtedly, an important place belonged to the staff policy, because the work on the ground, especially in remote regions of the vast empire depended on the head. That is why certain criteria appeared to choose candidates for the regional heads. Functioning of this institute of the regional head in various territories of the country caused distinctive signs, which undoubtedly affected the corps formation. Thus, the research has certain relevance. The author used a comparative method, which contributed to the analysis of the staff of the regional heads in Yakutia. The article for the first time in the Russian historiography studies the personnel policy in relation to the Yakut regional heads. It identifies an important principle of the corps formation related to cargo transportation and close connection with remote points of the Russian Northeast.
