Dmytro Doroshenko (1882–1951) was a prominent historian, historiographer, and moderate conservative political figure. Before the Revolution of 1917, he was associated with the Society of Ukrainian Progressives. During World War I, he served in the Union of Cities, a relief organization in Russian-occupied Galicia and Bukovyna. Post-revolution, Doroshenko became the Russian Provisional Government's commissioner of Galicia and Bukovyna and was later elected to the Ukrainian Central Rada. He declined a government leadership position and served as Ukrainian commissioner of Chernihiv gubernia. Subsequently, he held ministerial roles in Pavlo Skoropadsky's Hetman government. In 1919, Doroshenko emigrated, becoming a key figure in the émigré Hetmanite movement. He held academic positions in Ukrainian history across Europe and North America and authored nearly 1,000 works on various aspects of Ukrainian history, culture, and politics. Notably, he wrote the seminal "A Survey of Ukraine's History," providing a perspective on Ukrainian statehood and elite development. His works were published in multiple languages, reflecting his international influence and scholarly reach.
