This talk concerns the friendship of Attila T. Szabó with Dezso Pais, a scholar who determined the intellectual atmosphere of the Society for decades. Dezso Pais, professor of linguistics at the university of Budapest, legendary editor of the 'Hungarian Language', a prominent figure of the Budapest school of linguistics, became aware of the work of the young Transylvanian linguist rather early on. In the thirties, he was one of the first to publish Szabó's articles in the journal of the Society, and to aid his professional development with good advice and personal encouragement. During his stays in Budapest, Attila T. Szabó actively participated at the meetings of the Society, and made the acquaintance of the members of 'Kruzhok', a fraternity of linguists. After the Second World War, in the first decades of the communist regime, direct personal contacts between Hungarian scholars living in Romania and those living in Hungary became impossible. In those years, Pais and Szabó had to rest content with exchanging personal letters. The talk presents interesting details of those precious documents of the history of Hungarian linguistics.
