Origin
The donor's father, Aristotle, came to America from Greece in 1903 and worked many jobs in New York and Ohio, until he settled in Chicago Heights, IL. He founded a small retail general store in 1907 selling ready to wear and specialized in the sale of fabrics. He is reputed to be the first Greek in this business in the U.S.A. His business prospered and he became very active in the church and other community activities in America and in Greece. For his many good services and contributions he was awarded the title of Grand Crusader of the Order of the Orthodox Crusaders of the Holy Sepulcher by the Patriarch of Jerusalem, Damianos II.
