Jovan V. Ćirić, MD: A sketch for professional and political portrait


The study is primarily focused on the reconstruction of professional and political biography of Jovan Ćirić, MD, who was a doctor, the last mayor of Pirot Municipality before the April war and a man who can be seen as one of the renowned and from the historiographic point of view certainly interesting people originating from Pirot, whose mark is outstandingly visible on the journey through the 20th century. Although it is defined as a draft for a biography, the study can be seen as a contribution to more comprehensive research of the 20th century town history and as separate segment research of political and social circumstances in Pirot between two world wars. The text is generated exclusively according to the data provided for by the archive sources and makes it possible to portrait Jovan Ćirić, MD, historiographically as a doctor and partly as a politician, the portrait being only the sketch now, as clear as the source material allows it.
