Origin
Mr. Loumos was the first elected president of the Greek Community of Chicago in 1897. Loumos arrived in Chicago in 1893 and supported the faction that favored the establishment of a new church community by the Arcadians. He was responsible for organizing the formal community known officially as the "Association of the Greek Community of Chicago-Holy Trinity." His election to the presidency was probably due to the fact that he was not an Arcadian but a Laconian from Sparta. In 1939, Mr. Loumos retired to California.
