L. Z. Morokhovetz, professor of the Moscow University, made an important contribution to national medicine of late XIX-early XX centuries. However, during almost a century very little attention was paid to his personality. The article, on the basis of documents, describes activities of this eminent physiologist, historian of medicine, scientific research organizer and public figure. At that, a number of significant gaps and inaccuracies in his scientific biography were eliminated.
