The Tsakopoulos Hellenic Collection

CSUS Special Collections & Archives - Tsakopoulos Hellenic Collection

Tsakopoulos Hellenic Collection


The Department of Special Collections and University Archives also houses the rare and archival materials of the Tsakopoulos Hellenic Collection, donated to the Library in December 2002. Among the nearly 1,500 rare books are early productions of Greek presses dating to the early nineteenth century, editions of Modern Greek writers, Homerica, Ottoman Turkish chronicles, travel literature, and a sizable collection of scarce pamphlets.

The centerpiece of the collection's archival holdings is the manuscript collection of Basil Vlavianos, publisher of the Greek-American newspaper Ethnikos Keryx (National Herald), which includes professional files, photographs, and correspondence.

For more information, please contact George Paganelis or visit the Tsakopoulos Hellenic Collection website.
