  • Richard Nelson Frye

    Mahmoud Ahmadinejad donated a house in Isfahan to Professor Richard Nelson Frye, an American scholar of Iranian and Central Asian Studies. In 2007, Frye wrote directly to Ahmadinejad requesting permission for his own future burial on the banks of the Zayanderud River in Isfahan. Ahmadinejad instructed former interior minister, Mostafa Purmohammadi to provide the prerequisites for compliance with Frye’s request. Frye traveled to Isfahan on Sunday and attended the ceremony in which he received the house from officials in Isfahan, the Persian Service of ILNA reported on Sunday. Where in the world is there a country with such rich culture, music and beautiful art, Frye expressed at the ceremony, adding, “It is a great honor for me to be here among the Iranian people in the historical city of Isfahan.” It is said that the house would be converted into a museum after the death of the professor.
