In a recent NASE RODINA-Journal of the CZ Genealogical Society International,
a Robert Wahal asks for names of "famous" CZ Americans (born in USA) for
inclusion in a book which he is publishing. He needs dates of birth and death if
deceased, occupation, and basis for fame.

There is a multi-volume set of books coffee-table sized books which was
published in the late 1980's of notable Czechoslovak expats. The set is
called "Posledni Pocta" by Jozka Pejskar. I know for sure that the MMI
(Masaryk Memorial Institute) in Toronto has a set....and probably many
university libraries in the USA also have it. Hopefully they included not
only those born in the "old Country", but the "new world" generations also.
Good luck with your search.
