The National Hellenic Museum mourns the passing of Frank S. Kamberos. Mr. Kamberos, who has served on NHM’s Board of Trustees since 2005, financed the construction of the National Hellenic Museum’s Frank S. Kamberos Oral History Center. A cornerstone of the Museum’s work to preserve and share the Greek American story, the Frank S. Kamberos Oral History Center has grown in the past fifteen years to become the largest depository of Greek American oral histories in the world and an important resource for scholars, genealogists, and the public. We invite you to listen to Mr. Kamberos’s own oral history here to learn more about the life of this fascinating and generous man–and to see for yourself the incredible value of oral histories in preserving the past. Αἰωνία ἡ μνήμη! May his memory be eternal!
