MATENADARAN DIRECTOR RETIRES
Academician Sen Arevshatyan resigned today from the post of director of Matenadaran, a museum of ancient manuscripts. The ministry of education and science awarded the academician with a golden memorial medal.
Levon Mkrtchyan, minister of education and science, recalled that Arevshatyan enriched the museum with 1000 manuscripts in the course of 25 years in office. The minister said Arevshatyan will not direct the museum due to pension age but will be the chairman of the museum governing board.
An acting director will be appointed in the course of one week. The ministry of education and science will form a board to elect a new director in a closed voting in one month.
