Miklos Pogany Biography

Miklos Pogany




Miklos Pogany was born in Budapest, Hungary, in 1946. He moved to the United States for his education, first attending St. Procopium College in Illinois where he earned his BA in English and philosophy in 1964; and then at the University of Chicago, where he earned his M.A. in Comparitive Literature/Aesthetics in 1965. While studying for his Ph.D. in Chiacgo, he studied art independently while working as a lecturer, and in 1972 he completed his pursuit of English Literature at UofC in 1972.
