A glimpse of some of the embroideries and costumes the family of Doreen Canaday Spitzer (1914-2010), well known American Philhellene, recently donated to the Greek Institute.
On her first visit to Greece, Doreen Canaday wrote to her cousin, "I have seen the Parthenon in full moonlight, have seen Sophocles' Electra in the Odeon of Herodes Atticus...I have got lost, almost, on the slopes of Hymettus, of honey fame, and seen such sunsets and sunrises as people only dream of. Sometimes I can't believe it's really true..."
