Prof. Thanasis Maskaleris Collection

Thanasis Maskaleris

The Tsakopoulos Hellenic Collection acquired the private library of the late Thanasis Maskaleris, professor of comparative literature and classics at San Francisco State University and founder of the former Center for Modern Greek Studies there. Particularly rich in Modern Greek poetry, this collection consists of ca. 3,000 volumes of books, journals, and magazines; approximately 100 audiovisual recordings; and approximately nine linear feet of Maskaleris’ writings, notes, and related materials. Following Maskaleris’ death in 2017, the Modern Greek Studies Foundation (MGSF) acquired the material from Maskaleris’ son Dionysos; in September 2022 MGSF in turn donated the collection to Sacramento State for the enhancement of the Tsakopoulos Hellenic Collection.
