The Syrian World – July, 1927
The Syrian World was an English monthly magazine that was published by The Syrian-American Press of 104 Greenwich Street in Little Syria. Salloum Mokarzel, best known as the co founder of the Arabic language daily, Al-Hoda, was the editor for The Syrian World which began publishing in June of 1926. The Syrian World contained political and cultural news for the Arab Americans during this time period. This issue in particular contains a script of the Syrian-American play, “Anna Ascends” and a poem translated by Ameen Rihani. The Syrian World was a very beneficial resource and tool for the American born Syrians/Lebanese and it also gave them an opportunity to learn about their culture, language, and motherland. Below are several photographs from inside this issue. The entire issue will be available in a high quality scan in the near future.
