Luka Pintar

After finishing his studies in Graz, he was first a trainee and then a real professor at a secondary school in Ljubljana. In 1898, he was appointed scriptwriter of the Provincial Study Library in Ljubljana. After the death of the curator of the State Study Library, Konrad Stefan, in 1909, Luka Pintar became his successor and later also the director of the institute, which he led with dedication until his death. He was also one of the initiators of the establishment of the first club of amateur photographers in Slovenia.

In the field of literature and history, he established himself as a scholar of Prešeren.

As the headmaster of the then Lyceum, he obtained a valuable relic of Prešeren, which was donated to the library in 1905 by its owner Bamberg at Pintar's request. Today, this acquisition is considered one of the greatest treasures of the National and University Library.
