ANDRÉ MAMAN, professor emeritus of Romance languages and literatures, died April 13 in Princeton. He was 90. Maman joined the faculty in 1958, served as assistant dean of the college from 1968 to 1971, became a full professor in 1976, and retired in 1991. The following year, he was elected to serve a nine-year term as a senator of France, representing French citizens who live outside the country. Maman won the President’s Award for Distinguished Teaching, and a senior-thesis prize in the French and Italian department is named for him. “To generations of Princetonians, Maman was the incarnation of France,” said professor emeritus François Rigolot.
