Letter to Editor

Honoring Our Fathers, Our History

To the Editor:

I recently ran across your article on Greek-American mayors.

I believe my father, George C. Eliades, was the first foreign born Greek-American (Smyrna) to be mayor of a large city here in the USA: Lowell, Massachusetts (population 100,000 at the time), 1950.If any of your readers know of an earlier instance would they kindly contact me.

Christopher G. Eliades, M.D

Nashua, NH

To the Editor: After reading a Letter to the Editor here entitled “Visiting Greece Is More Expensive This Year” (June 18), with the writer being from New York City, my personal experience is totally reversed.
