ANTON CSENGERY (1822-1880), Hungarian publicist, and a historical writer of great influence on his time, was born at Nagyvarad on the 2nd of June 1822. He took, at an early date, a very active part in the literary and political movements immediately preceding the Hungarian Revolution of 1848. He and Baron Sigismund Kemeny may be considered as the two founders of high-class Magyar journalism. After 1867 the greatest of modern Hungarian statesmen, Francis Deak, attached Csengery to his personal service, and many of the momentous state documents inspired or suggested by Deak were drawn up by Csengery. In that manner his influence, as represented by the text of many a statute regulating the relations between Austria and Hungary, is one of an abiding character. As a historical writer he excelled chiefly in brilliant and thoughtful essays on the leading political personalities of his time, such as Paul Nagy, Bertalan, Szemere and others. He also commenced a translation of Macaulay's History. He died at Budapest on the 13th of July 1880. a :b: c 0.891 : I : 0.799 0.910 : 1 :.0.540 0937: I : 0.974 592
