Uvarov, Sergey (Semyonovich), Count
born Sept. 5, 1786, Moscow, Russia
died Sept. 16, 1855, Moscow

Russian administrator.

Uvarov served as a diplomat (1806–10), head of the St. Petersburg educational district (1811–22), and deputy minister of education (1832) before being named minister of education in 1833 under Tsar Nicholas I. In an influential report, Uvarov declared that education must adhere to the "principles of orthodoxy, autocracy, and nationality," which was adopted as an ideology rooted in loyalty to dynastic rule, traditional religious faith, and glorification of the Russian homeland. Uvarov was also president of the Academy of Science from 1818 until his death.
