TIME OF TITANS:
GREEK ATHLETES IN NEW YORK CITY

I am excited to announce that The National Herald has given Hellenic Genealogy Geek the right to reprint articles that may be of interest to our group.

The history of amateur Greek athletics in New York City is still a matter of debate. This is especially curious since, from 1901 to the present, published accounts on the Greek amateur athletes of New York City abound. Many Greek immigrants joined local athletic clubs and gyms throughout the five boroughs.
We will restrict our survey here to the Greek American Athletic Club of New York City. As far as available published accounts now report, the GAAC was, at least as of 1901, originally based in Brooklyn’s Ulmer Park. By 16 May 1913, however, the GAAC had moved to Manhattan.

- To the best of my knowledge, these lists include all Males who were eligible to vote in the elections.  
- Names are in alphabetical order by Given name (First n…

Australia's Hellenic Museum was inaugurated in April 2007. ​ Occupying one of the country's landmark buildings, the Museum has taken on an identity of its own in the former Royal Mint building.
