To whom it may concern: I am putting together a special exhibition which will be on display at the Saint Photios Greek Orthodox National Shrine in St. Augustine FL during calendar year 2015. Entitled Pioneering Priests: Establishing the Greek Orthodox Faith in America, it will feature major clerics in the early history of the Greek Church in America. Among those I hope to include is Father Elias [Louis] Tsaousis, who served the St. John the Baptist Greek Orthodox parish in Omaha for many years and passed away on October 22, 1942. Would it be possible for you to please send me a copy of the obituary and related articles which may have appeared in the local press at that time? Thank you so much for you assistance. William H. Samonides, Ph.D. 1933 Miami Court NE Canton, OH 44714-2236 Home telephone: 330-452-5162
