In Memoriam

Denis SinorThe Department of Central Eurasian Studies lost a valued scholar of Hungarian in January with the death of Distinguished Professor Emeritus Denis Sinor. Sinor came to IU in 1962, and was chair of the Department of Uralic and Altaic Studies from 1963 to 1981. From 1965 to 1967 he was chair of the Asian Studies Program. In 1967 he founded the Asian Studies Research Institute, to become the Research Institute for Inner Asian Studies. In 2006 it was renamed Denis Sinor Institute for Inner Asian Studies. Indiana University honored him with the "Rocking Chair Award" and the Thomas Hart Benton Mural Medallion, the John W. Ryan Award and inclusion in the President's Circle. He would have been 95 in April. There will be a Concert of Hungarian Music in his memory held March 3 (5:00pm in Auer Hall) and a campus memorial service on March 4 (4:30 p.m. in the University Club).
