Jacques Tocatlian (1929-2019)
Jacques Tocatlian worked at UNESCO for twenty years in programs for international co-operation and assistance to the developing world in the fields of library, scientific and technical information, documentation and archives services. In his last years at Unesco before retiring he was responsible for the project of the Revival of the Ancient Library of Alexandria. Jacques has two passions: writing and oil painting. He has held several painting exhibitions and won the Julien Miallon medal in 1998. His first novel, Around the World in Eighty Missions, is not an autobiography, but rather the product of an interaction between imagination, experience, fiction, reminiscence and fantasy, tempered by a sprinkling of light humor.
