The Diniacopoulos held one of the largest private holdings of antiquities in Canada, and the fonds documents the personal and professional lives of the Family, Vincent and Olga Diniacopoulos as antiquarians, collectors, dealers and travelers; and Denis Diniacopoulos as a photographer and a teacher.
In 1998, Olga Diniacopoulos oversaw the dispersal of the remnants of the collection in order to raise funds for a major scholarship endowment at Concordia. Academic research on the remarkable contents of this collection continues.
Together, over 150 documents have been digitized to facilitate research around the world. Click on the link to see the documents related to Olga and Vincent Diniacoupolos; and on the following link for the ones documenting the life of Denis Diniacopoulos.
