Languages of publication
It is not a well-known fact that Władysław Kotwicz (1872–1944), a world famous Mongolist and Altaist, in 1923 also became the first President of the Polish Oriental Society and held this position almost until his death. This paper concerns this very sphere of his acti- vity. It emphasizes merits of Kotwicz as the organizer of the Polish Oriental Society and the editor of its publications but also deals with other matters concerning Kotwicz. The article is illustrated with photographs from Kotwicz’s private archive that to date have not been published.
