The Greek Heritage Society of Southern California (GHS) was established
in 1985 to preserve the rich culture, heritage and traditions of Greek
immigrants in Southern California. With the association of the Basil P.
Caloyeras Modern Greek Studies Center at Loyola Marymount University,
GHS sponsors and produces exhibits, stage productions and programs that
showcase and preserve the artistic, academic, professional and athletic
achievements of the local Greek community. With a database of over 500 interviews of Greek immigrants and Greek Americans in southern California, GHS produced its award winning, "The Pioneers: 1900-1943." This documentary featured the struggles and successes of the first Greeks that emigrated to southern California. "The Promise of Tomorrow: 1943-2007," a documentary currently in
post-production, chronicles the successes of subsequent generations and
how their assimilation into the American culture does not diminish their Greek traditions and heritage. In conjunction with the documentary series, the Oral History Program
(FLOGA Project) will be established to provide an extensive archival
database for research and cultural awareness, as well as promote
cross-cultural studies.
