As per our current Database, Dimitrija Cupovski died on Oct 29, 1940 (age 61).
He worked as a painter in Bulgaria before studying in Belgrade and St. Petersburg.
However, after that he continued his education in Belgrade and Saint Petersburg. The Bulgarian Macedonian revolutionary Hristo Shaldev, who lived then in St. Petersburg, described him as a person sharing pro-Russian views. According to Shaldev, a member of the Secret Macedonian-Adrianopolitan circle in St. Peterburg and IMRO, the main ideologists under whose influence Čupovski failed, were the Serbian professors Stojan Novakovic, Jovan Cvijić and Aleksandar Belić. Especially Novaković used his diplomatic role in St. Petersburg to put his ideas into practice, through his support to the Macedonian Literary Society, established in Saint Petersburg in 1902, and its "Macedonist" members as Čupovski.
He was one of the founders of the Macedonian Literary Society, established in Saint Petersburg in 1902, and served as its president from 1902 to 1917. Čupovski was also the author of a large number of articles and official documents, publisher of the printed bulletin of the Macedonian Colony, and organiser of several Macedonian associations. He wrote verse both in Russian and Macedonian. He also produced the first Macedonian-Russian dictionary, worked on a Macedonian grammar and an encyclopaedic monograph on Macedonia and the Macedonians. He also drew up an ethnic and geographical map of Macedonia.
When in 1905 Čupovski tried to organize for the first time a pan-Macedonian conference in Veles, he was expelled from the town by a local chief of IMRO Ivan Naumov, and was threatened with death for his pro-Macedonian and anti-Bulgarian ideas. Blaže Ristovski claims that it happened because of the intrigues of the local Bulgarian Metropolitan bishop and the activity of Shaldev, who then described Čupovski as a Serbian agent, but eventually, in his Memoirs, would present a letter from Čupovski, written in 1904, in which he speaks against “the Serbian propaganda in Macedonia and its destructive influence amongst the people”. Some Bulgarian researchers also suppose that Čupovski was a marginal figure and Serbian agent on a service of the Russian Imperial Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
After the outbreak of the Balkan War in 1912, Čupovski arrived on November 17 in Sofia, where he met with a part of the Macedonian emigration, but without much success. On December 4, he arrived in Skopje where Čupovski stayed at the home of his uncle and also met with some local citizens. This attempt to persuade them to adopt his pro-Macedonian ideas failed too, and he was even expelled by his relative.
Dimitrija's father was killed and his hometown burned during a politically turbulent time. Following these tragedies, Cupovski settled in the Macedonian village of Krusevo with his mother and brothers.
