Maximo Jose Kahn, one-time Republican Spanish Ambassador to various Balkan countries, died here yesterday at the age of 56. He was an author of importance in this country, waiting in Spanish on many Jewish subjects.

Born in Germany, Sr. Kahn went to Spain at the age of 19, becoming almost immediately a figure in Spanish literary circles. After Franco’s victory in Spain, he went to France, then to Mexico and finally to this country. Among his works was a Spanish translation of the works of Yehuda Halevy.
