Biographical Note

Gerim (sometimes spelled Qerim) Panarity was the editor of the first Albanian-American newspaper in the United States, Dielli ("The Sun"). Taking on the position in the 1940s, he remained there for nearly 25 years, until his retirement in 1963. Started in 1909 by the Society of Besa-Besen in Boston, Dielli is now the oldest continuously-published Albanian language newspaper in the world. In 1912, the Pan-Albanian Federation of America, Vatra ("The Hearth") was formed, becoming one of the most influential voices in the movement for Albanian independence. Dielli became Vatra’s main organ for fostering Albanian nationalism.

Gerim Panarity was dedicated to the cause of Albanian independence his entire life. As a young man in 1911, Panarity left the United States for Albania, to fight with Memet and Faik Konitza for liberation from the Ottoman Empire. He eventually returned to the United States to complete his education, attending the Hitchcock Free Academy in Brimfield, Massachusetts. He graduated from Clark University in Worcester, Massachusetts in 1926, receiving the Washington Franklin Medal for excellence in history. During World War II, Panarity broadcast through the Voice of America in Albania, encouraging Albanian resistance to the Axis powers. He was also instrumental in post-war efforts to send food, clothing and medicine to the country.

Throughout his life, Panarity published numerous articles and books on the subject of Albania. In 1925, he published an article in Current History entitled, "Albania’s Latest Revolution." He was also chief author of the WPA Federal Writers’ Project book The Albanian Struggle in the Old World and the New. In 1957, he published and edited the collection Albania: The Rock Garden of Southeastern Europe and Other Essays. He published a work on Metropolitan Fan Noli, a prominent Albanian-American leader with whom he was in active partnership through Vatra. He also contributed to such publications as The Globe and The Christian Science Monitor.

Scope Note

This collection contains the correspondence, newspaper clippings, diaries, photographs, legal documents, maps, manuscripts and Albanian/Albanian-American newspapers kept by Gerim Panarity. Most materials relate to the Albanian-American community and modern Albanian history and politics. A significant percentage of the materials in this collection are in Albanian.

Series I contains Panarity's professional and personal correspondence. It also includes secondary correspondence generated through Mr. Panarity's translation work for Albanians in America trying to file legal claims in Albania after World War II.

Series II contains Panarity's writings, both personal (diaries) as well as numerous notes, drafts and manuscripts for articles and books.

Series III contains materials on Albania in the twentieth century, including writings and speeches from Albanian political figures, articles and books, radio transcripts, stamps, paper money, and maps. A small section of materials in Series III are from or about American missionaries to Albania in the 20th century.

Series IV generally contains material about Albanian-American life, its organs and organizations. Included is a small collection of ephemera from the Albanian Orthodox Archdiocese in America and several of their churches in the greater Boston area. This series also contains a set of sheet music from Professor Thomas Nassi, an Albanian-American graduate of the New England Conservatory who developed liturgical music for the Albanian Orthodox Church together with Bishop Fan Noli.

Series V contains images of prominent Albanians and Albanian life, including a number of images produced by the government of Communist Albania in the 1950s and 1960s.

Series VI contains material from Gerim Panarity's life unrelated to his interests in Albania, as well as a collection of obituaries published after his death.

Oversized materials throughout the collection have been removed and placed in Series VII, which also contains a number of early 20th century Albanian nationalist newspapers, maps and Panarity's scrapbook.

While the contents of the collection span nearly the entirety of the 20th century, the majority of the materials fall in the period from the 1940s-1970s.
