Michael Karpathakis
Copyright (1935)

Michael was born in Symi 1912 while the island was still Italian, therefore arrived in Australia with an Italian passport. He was my wife's (Sadie's) father. Died 18/12/1961 in Sydney. Was a professional fisherman. Had many friends in the Immigration Department and assisted scores of Greeks coming to Australia working on ships, then "jumping" ship. He managed to get permits for them as well as passports later. He had many Kytherian friends.
