Donation of Kostan Zaryan's archive to Mashtots Matenadaran

On July 24, Kostan Zarian's grandchild dren donated to Mashtots Matenadaran the archive of the outstanding Armenian writer, poet, novelist, and art historian. The donation also includes published and unpublished, handwritten and typewritten works in different languages by Kostan’s son, Architect Armen Zarian, concerning architecture, urban development, and art.
The goal of the donation is to preserve, coordinate, archive, study, publish, publicize and digitize Kostan Zarian's literary and art history works, letters, notes, and biographical material, all of which are of great value.
It should also be noted that the archive has not been completed yet. In the coming months, Kostan Zarian archives in other countries, too, will be brought to Armenia, and the preservation of this material will also be entrusted to Mashtots Matenadaran.
