Enn Tyugu: a Deported Estonian and a Soviet Academician
This work is dedicated to an Estonian scientist in Computer Science, Enn Tyugu (1935–2020). The article focuses on two significant events in his biography: deportation in 1941 and his interest in computers. The topic appears relevant since in the post-Soviet (the same as in the USSR) environment research on the life paths of the representatives of deported nations was scarce; we know little about their life and the life of their progeny. We will not elaborate on the issue of access of science and technology specialists (technocrats) to political power and administrative decision-making and will limit our interest to their socio-professional identities.
