From the Preface, by John Kleber:
Marios Stephanides presents us with a small beautiful piece of a mosaic for which his Greek ancestors are so renowned. The piece is a detailed history of one ethnic group that settled at the Falls of the Ohio River in Louisville, Kentucky. When combined with the histories of other peoples, it presents a grand mosaic of a city rich in ethnic diversity.As the editor of the Encyclopedia of Louisville, I discovered that only a few of the city's immigrant groups have been fortunate enough to have someone who combined the interest, the ancestry, and the ability to give us a written history, and so the mosaic has many pieces missing. However, thanks to Professor Stephanides there is one less missing piece, and from now on Louisvillians will know the story of their ancestors.
