Clear Lake Public Library - 200 North 4th St. - Clear Lake, Iowa


Helen Karamitros, a NIACC sociology instructor, comes from a family of Greek immigrants who came to America in the early 1900’s when there was a worker shortage in Mason City.  She & her family lived in Lehigh Row which was one of three segregated neighborhoods in Mason City during that time.  The neighborhood housed Southern and Eastern European immigrants as well as Mexicans who worked mostly in either the cement or brick & tile plants.  Helen will share with us her experiences growing up in Lehigh Row.  Come and share your afternoon with us.
