Rector also stated that he was one of those rare individuals who could combine the best sides of a teacher and scientist, as well as man and patriot.

 

“Stepan Melik-Bakhshyan’s legacy will remain in our history forever, and our dear professor’s books have become a handbook for all historians, especially for students. I remember him as one of the best professors at the Chair of Armenian History, whose speech was often spiced with humor, too. He was very pedant in his undertakings. And the best evidence of his consistent work is the monumental dictionary, prepared by him in cooperation with his two colleagues – “The Dictionary of Toponyms”, - said YSU Rector.
