Yuri Nikolayevich Rabotnov was born in Nizhny Novgorod, where his family was living, and he spent there his childhood studying at gymnasium. His father, Nikolay Dmitrijevich Rabotnov, has been employed as a teacher at Nizhny Novgorod Polytechnic Institute; he was a member of St. Petersburg Astronomical Society and inculcated the interest of his son to the exact sciences. His mother Elizaveta Ivanovna Rabotnova was bringing up the son and kept the house. She belonged to the gentry, and according to the gentry traditions, she knew perfectly French, as it was her native language, and her son inherited the interest to the study of foreign languages.
