Documents that belonged to Greimas are being preserved in various institutions, as well as private archives. The largest collection can be found at the Vilnius University Library that has possession of his personal archive. As the documents are researched, an ever richer portrait of this personality takes shape. On this page, we present digital versions of photos, letters, article manuscripts and other documents.
