▪ 2006

      Bulgarian-born American literary scholar (b. Dec. 8, 1907, Pazardzhik, Bulg.—d. Nov. 19, 2005, Lantana, Fla.), was a renowned French literature scholar. Artinian translated and edited The Complete Short Stories of Guy de Maupassant (1955), considered by many to be the definitive English-language edition of the great French writer's stories. He also published a number of critical studies on Maupassant. Artinian served as a professor of French at Bard College, Annandale-on-Hudson, N.Y., from 1935 until his retirement in 1964. A prominent figure in literary and academic circles, Artinian served as the basis for the character of professor Aristide Poncy in Mary McCarthy's 1952 novel The Groves of Academe and for the character of the psychiatrist Dr. Artinian in Gore Vidal's 1960 play The Best Man.
