The paper describes the decisive role of B. I. Verkin in the return from oblivion the name of L. V. Shubnikov and the restoration of the place worthy of his contribution to the low temperature physics and its applications. We begin with a brief survey of Shubnikov’s works, several of them are of the Nobel prize level. Then we briefly describe the foundation by B. I. Verkin of the Institute for Low Temperature Physics and Engineering. Finally, we outline the history of writing the book about Shubnikov and the outstanding efforts by B. I.Verkin in the realization of this last, according to him, achievement of his life.
Key words: B. I. Verkin, L. V. Shubnikov.
