Kadir Rakhimovich Timergazin was the eighth and last child of a poor peasant family. As a child, he was a shepherd and farmer. At the age of 14, he was sent to the Argayashskaya boarding school. In 1930, he joined the University of Kazan, where he graduated from the Faculty of Geology in 1935.

Subsequently, from 1947-1950, he served as the head of the Laboratory of Lithology and Geochemistry at the Ufa Research Institute of Petroleum. During this period, in 1949, he defended his thesis on "The terrigenous rocks of the Devonian-Bavlinsky Tuimazinsky oil region."

Scientific advances[edit]

Timergazin was one of the first to give a description of the lithology of the western slope of the Southern Urals. He conducted a comprehensive study in the area Tuimazinsky Permian coal-rock and Devonian sediments. The results of these works have influenced the exploration for oil and gas fields in the USSR.

Throughout his academic career Timergazin authored 70 scientific papers. [2]
