Nicholas Karas is a lifelong Lowell, Massachusetts resident.  Upon graduation from Lowell High School, he entered the Army Air Force and served in the Pacific Theater of Operations during World War II.  Later, he received degrees from both the University of Massachusetts at Amherst and Northeastern University.  He worked as a physicist at the Air Force Research Laboratories at Hanscom Air Force Base in Bedford, Massachusetts until his retirement.

He has a deep and abiding interest in the heritage and experiences of the Greek immigrants of Lowell, Massachusetts. He has written three books about their recollections and memories: The Greek Triangle of the Acre, Greek Immigrants at Work, and The Greek Immigrant Chronicles.  He is currently working on a fourth book, Greek Immigrant Voices and Images.
