    Biography / Administrative History

    Zygmunt Haupt 1907-1975, was a native of Poland. He began his career in writing and painting after abandoning earlier studies in architecture and urban planning. Following the German invasion of Poland in 1939, Mr. Haupt escaped to Hungary, then on to France and England, where he continued to serve with Polish forces until the war ended. Mr. Haupt came to the United States after the war and became a United States citizen. He worked for 18 years for the U.S. Information Agency. During that time his writings appeared in the principal Polish ?migr? journals Wiadomosci (London) and Kultura (Paris). His book, The Paper Ring, was published for the first time in Paris in 1962 and won the Kultura literary award. In 1971 he received the annual award from the Koscielski Foundation in Geneva for his contributions to the Polish literature.
