A Memoir by Ghaus Ansari

Ghaus Mohiuddin Ansari was born in Lucknow, India. He was educated at Lucknow University, University of London, and University of Vienna where he earned his Ph.D. in anthropology in 1957. He served in research and teaching positions at universities in Baghdad, Libya, Kuwait, and Vienna, where he was appointed professor emeritus. He was the founding chairman of the IAUES Commission on urban anthropology. After retirement he lived in Calpe, Spain and Vienna, where he died in 2012.

Arif Ansari was born in Lucknow’s King George’s Medical College hospital; the silver jubilee of its namesake’s coronation is the starting point of this story. He grew up in Aligarh, India, where he attended Our Lady of Fatima Secondary School. He was educated in electrical engineering at AMU, Aligarh, India and SIU, Carbondale, IL. A wireless communication engineer by training and profession, he lives near Washington D.C.
