The AHEPAN Spring 2022 - 12

their pursuit of the American Dream, they worked hard, made
every effort to assimilate into their new society, and became
American citizens. These eight individuals were: Brothers Harry
D. Angelopoulos (Angel) and John D. Angelopoulos (Angel),
James Campbell, George Campbell, Nicholas D. Chotas, George
Nickopoulos (Polos), Spiro J. Stamos, and James N. Vlassopoulos
(Vlass).
Six of the eight founders were born in villages in the
Peloponnesus. Five of the eight anglicized their last names, and
all became fluent in English. Most worked in the food service
industry at least once over the course of their professional lives,
and at least half of them were married with families. Although
unconfirmed, it is suspected that three of the eight may have left
Atlanta later in their lives, making it challenging to learn more
about them.
On June 23, 2022, two presentations aim to shed light on the
circumstances in which these men arrived in Atlanta, and the
findings obtained from interviews and oral histories given by
their grandchildren. Local author Stephen Georgeson will begin
by discussing his book, Atlanta Greeks, an Early History. He will
examine post-Civil War Atlanta, the need to rebuild the economy,

the demand for workers, and how this impacted the arrival of
those early Greeks. Following Stephen's presentation, Dr. Victor
Polizos will present background on life in Atlanta in the late
1910s and early 1920s, and he will review research on the origins
of AHEPA's founding and the lives of the men who started it.
Following the June 23 presentations, the centennial celebration
will continue with the dedication of the AHEPA Founding
Monument on June 25, and a Grand Banquet and Dance that
evening.
