Abstract

In January, 2002, our Nordic countries lost one of their pioneer Latin Americanist scholars, the Norwegian Gudmund Stang, with his brilliant mind and strong personality. He was born in Buenos Aires in l933 by Norwegian parents. His father Einar was a fine artist who in his drawings caught the image of the River Plate countryside. Gudmund received an Anglo-Argentine education. He would remain a member of the Anglican Church until his death. He did not move to Norway until 195l to carry out his military service. Then he started studies in primarily history at the University of Oslo until his graduation in l962. He was especially interested in the theory and methods of history and social sciences and wrote his thesis in British historiography. At the same time he gathered an impressive knowledge and understanding of both the philosophy, literature, art and music of the Nordic countries, Britain and Latin America. When an Assistant Professor in History at the University of Minnesota 1967-1969, this part of the world became his favourite field of studies.
