2018-2019 GEORGE PAPAIOANNOU FELLOWSHIP
THE GENNADIUS LIBRARY OF THE AMERICAN SCHOOL OF CLASSICAL STUDIES AT ATHENS
THE 2018-2019 GEORGE PAPAIOANNOU FELLOWSHIP
Research in Modern Greek Political and Social History
Deadline: January 15, 2018
The George Papaioannou Fellowship was established by Mrs. Nadia Tzevelekou to honor her father George Papaioannou. A doctor by training and a member of the Greek parliament since 1933, George Papaioannou was the leader of the Trichonis (in Aitolia-Acarnania) sub-division of the National Republican Greek League (EDES). After the end of the Greek Civil War, he served as mayor of Agrinion and a member of the Greek Parliament.
The George Papaioannou Papers contain material relating to the Civil War, as well as information about the recognition of the EDES guerilla fighters during the dictatorship in 1969. Other materials include many photographs, various reports by Napoleon Zervas (the leader of EDES), correspondence between Papaioannou and British major G. McAdam, and several issues of local newspapers from the 1950-1960s.
