Sylva Natalie Manoogian prepares Shahan Natalie's manuscripts for publication

 Sylva Natalie Manoogian is presently engaged in the arduous process of translating into English and preparing her father's manuscripts for publication!

It was many years ago . . . Marash Girl will not reveal exactly how many . . . . that Sylva, then a senior at Radcliffe College (now Harvard University) sat freshman Marash Girl down and told her about Marash Boy.  "This is the man you must marry.  You are perfect for each other . . . , he's Armenian,  he's Protestant, he has blue eyes, he's getting a Ph.D. in Middle Eastern History from Harvard, AND he's Marashtsi!"

Little did Sylva (or Marash Girl, for that matter) know that many years later, Sylva's blessing would take hold.

Let Marash Girl return the favor, Sylva, and recommend that all of her readers go to the link above and read about the work you are doing: gathering, translating and publishing into book form your father's writings!

From Wikipedia:  Shahan Natalie (ArmenianՇահան Նաթալի) (1884–1983) was a member of the Armenian Revolutionary Federation's Bureau and the principal organizer of Operation Nemesis wherein the Turkish masterminds of the Armenian Genocide were assassinated.[1] He later became a writer on Armenian national philosophy, and notable for his essay, The Turks and Us.
