Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



The first Slovenian teacher in geography (1927-1966) at the new University of Ljubljana after the first world war Anton Melik (1890-1966) has published beside the numerous papers also two monographs of Slovenia, the first one in two books (in 1935 and 1936 with 719 pages), and the second one in 1963 (517 pages) with former four books on the separate parts of the country in the years 1954, 1957, 1959 and 1960, altogether 2861 pages. From all Slovenian geographers till now he achieved the highest recognition of the slovenian scientific and public authorities. Despite of that the students of the last class at the Department of geography in Ljubljana in a questionnaire in the year 2006 considered the Melik's publications to have mostly historical and not actual value for the Slovenian geography. This article quotes some topics from Melik's publications still important for contemporary geography. This article considers the reasons for the oblivion on Melik. The only report on Anton Melik in foreign countries, characteristically, was published by Thomas Collin in Geographers Bibliographical Studies 9 in 1985. - (IKR)
