PAHH stands for the Preservation of American Hellenic History.
PAHH strives to safeguard the Greek-American past, present, and future.
Preservation of our American Hellenic history is continual. It is our purpose to establish dialogue among those of us who are already collecting and documenting. It is also our purpose to stress the importance of preservation and to assist others.
Organized groups are working in a systematic fashion. Unsung heroes are quietly squirreling away precious artifacts and conducting research.
There are also many thousands of "live museums". Yes, live museums ~ our own homes ~ museums of our daily lives and furnishings as well as our past. Carrying this further, we may say that each of us is a living book. Each of us holds the memories of those who have gone before us, the experiences of our parents, our responses to historical events. In today's hectic world, however, few of us make the effort to record our own experiences. Let's make the effort. Let's do this.
The facilitation of dialogue throughout the country has finally been realized through this website. It is our purpose to establish dialogue among those of us who are already collecting and documenting. It is also our purpose to stress the importance of preservation and to assist others in organizing their own groups.
Our motto is
Have Portfolio, Will Travel.
We have helpful material that is printed and ready to send, experiences to share, recommendations to offer.
Are you seeking advice about developing a regional group?
… or about organizing a local symposium (a conference, seminar, or workshop)?
Are you conducting research into Greek-American history?
Would you like to come aboard with your own ideas and enthusiasm? Please do.
Currently, we are looking for new people to manage this website. Just contact PAHH.
Do you already have an active history preservation group in your region? You might like to put your group in the list of regional groups.
