The article addresses milestones in the history of the Maxim Kovalevsky’ Sociological Society. The authors note when such a professional society had been established the processes of institutionalizing sociology in Russia became stronger and the consolidation of sociologists became real fact. Today, as shown in the article, the Society develops sociology at different levels of Russian socium, and propagation of sociological knowledge and education is emphasized as one of the important part of its activity. The authors assume that the Maxim Kovalevsky’ Sociological Society preserves today traditions launched in early 20th century Russia and contributes to the consolidation of sociologists’ professional community.
