The Center for Modern Greek Studies at San Francisco State University, with the support and collaboration of the Modern Greek Studies Foundation, a non-profit organization whose purpose it is to help support the Nikos Kazantzakis endowment, has established the Northern California Greek American Archive at the Center for Modern Greek Studies at San Francisco State University.
The Archive's long-term goal is to document the history of local Greek immigrants and Greek Americans from the earliest immigrations through the twentieth century and continue as an ongoing project into the present millennium. The archive focuses on the history of Greek Americans in northern California but primarily focus on the Bay Area, and contains a collection of videos, audio tapes, primarily of oral histories, photographs, music and other memorabilia in digitized format on computer discs. In addition, a comprehensive microform collection of Greek American newspapers published throughout California as well as a collection of books and periodicals related to the scope of the Archive and to the history of the Greek American experience are to be housed at the J. Paul Leonard Library at San Francisco State University.
The Greek American Oral History Archive began the process of recording interviews in the Spring of 2001. To date, we have conducted approximately thirty oral histories and have begun transcription of completed interviews.
The Archive has also begun a collection of periodicals related to Greek Americans.
Anyone wishing to volunteer to interview Bay Area Greek immigrants and Greek Americans should please call the Center. We are currently also soliciting names of candidates to be interviewed.
