Julius Viktoras Kaupas - 100th Anniversary of His Birth
(March 5, 1920 - March 1, 1964)

March 5, 2020 was the 100th anniversary of my father's birth. He was a psychiatrist, writer, essayist, critic, painter, photographer, and an active participant in Lithuanian literary, cultural and intellectual life.

There were several events planned to mark the anniversary: a seminar at Vytautas the Great University in Kaunas devoted to his writing, a walking tour in Kaunas of the places mentioned in his book, Daktaras Kripstukas Pragare (Doctor Scribble in Hell), and an exhibit at the Maironis Writers Museum. These events will hopefully take place once the current worldwide health crisis has passed.

The Writers Museum had an exhibition about my father in 2015. Here's a link to the "virtual exhibition."
