Alexander Alexandrovich Kornilov (Russian: Алекса́ндр Алекса́ндрович Корни́лов; 1862–1925) was a Russian historian and liberal politician.

Biography[edit]

With deputats of the First Russian State Duma

Prior to the Russian Revolution of 1917, Kornilov was a history professor at the Polytechnicum of Peter the Great in Saint Petersburg and author of a definitive history of 19th century Russia. He specialized in the reign of Alexander II of Russia and the life of Mikhail Bakunin. In 1917, he served as secretary of the Central Committee of the liberal Constitutional Democratic Party and chairman of the party's Petrograd Committee.

After the Russian Civil War (1918–1920) Kornilov taught at the renamed Polytechnical Institute in Petrograd and continued his work on Bakunin.
