Nicolas Gyenes was born in Pancevo, Yugoslavia (formerly Hungary) on 27 July 1911. He received his early education in England and Yugoslavia; his academic career started with enrolment at the University of Zagreb in 1930. Over the next three decades he studied at a variety of Universities and Institutes across Europe. By 1963 he held three degrees: Licence a Lettres, Sorbonne (1949); Diplome de l'Institut d'Etudes Politiques de l'Universite de Paris (1950); and Doctorado en Filosofia y Letras, University of Salamanca (1963). These three decades of study were punctuated by war, military service, prison, concentration camps and exile. Dr. Gyenes came to the University of Saskatchewan in 1968 as Assistant Professor of Art. He was promoted to Associate Professor in 1970 and Full Professor in 1978. Upon his retirement in 1979 he was named Professor Emeritus.
