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. The Bay
