When the first recorded Greeks arrived in 1889, Houston was not much more than a swamp, but the entrepreneurial spirit of the fledgling city beckoned with economic promise. Learn how their hard work and perseverance became the foundation for one of the largest Greek communities in America.

Constantina Michalos earned her doctorate in literature at Rice University and is visiting assistant professor of English and director of tutorial services at the University of St. Thomas.
