The Armenian diaspora has a fascinating history in the USA. In New York City, this includes some notable facts across the past two centuries--a rich history of triumph, scandal, tragedy, achievement despite adversity, with such colorful notables as Kristapor der Seropian, M. Vartan Malcom, Raymond Damadian, Nicholas Kristoff, Haik Kavookjian.
