Dates of existence



George Papadatos is a Greek Canadian who lived in Toronto from 1969 to 1984. He was very active in organizing cultural activities on the Danforth and was co-owner of the Trojan Horse coffee house where a number of anti-junta activities took place. Alongside Fotis and Dimitris Stamatopoulos, he founded Eastminster Community Services in 1972, an organization that supported Greeks in their interactions with Canadian federal departments and agencies. Papadatos taught Greek language and culture courses at the University of Toronto Scarborough (then Scarborough College) between 1979 and 1984 when he returned to Greece. He was also a journalist and local community organizer who organized and promoted several music tours of Greek musicians, performers and poets who were invited to tour the United States and Canada by the Cultural Workshop of Toronto to raise awareness of local conditions in Greece. In 1979, Papadatos and Nancy White published "Ta Tragoudia tou Agona - Songs of Struggle," a collection of translated songs. A year later, he published "Anthologio Antistasiakis Technis," an edited collection of works produced by Greek artists during the 1940s. In recognition of his journalistic and publishing activities, he was awarded a Print Prize by the Canadian Ethnic Media Association. In 1984, he was awarded a metallic plate for his services as the Secretary of the Hellenic Athletic Federation of Ontario.
