GOLOS (The Voice), a daily political and literary newspaper; was published from January 1863 to February 1883 under the editorship of its publisher А. А. Kraevsky (from 1871 jointly with V. А. Bilbasov). Enjoying the stature of Petersburg's most popular and influential newspapers, it was aimed at the practical implementation of the new reforms. Founded with a contribution of the Minister of People's Education V. A. Golovin, the Interior Minister P. A. Valuev and Financial Minister М. K. Reitern, in 1863-65 it received funding from the Ministry of People's Education; in the 1860s, however, it gained the reputation of an official publication. By retaining ties with the governmental circles the newspaper had access to the most up-to-date and authentic information. Its circulation in 1865-75 increased from 4,900 copies to 22,600. At various times among others А. N. Pleshcheev, P. D. Boborykin, V. P. Bezobrazov, V. V. Chuyko, G. А. Laroche, V. R. Zotov contributed to the Golos as staff writers. In 1881-82 the newspaper received a number of warnings; in February 1883 the publication was suspended for a noxious orientation (with a reservation to resume publication with preliminary censorship; however Kraevsky preferred to close it down). In the 1860s the editorial office was located at Kraevsky's house (36 Liteiny Avenue).
