Famous Czech- and Slovak-Americans

Throughout Czechoslovakia’s turbulent history, many Czechs and Slovaks have immigrated to the United States. Many were well-known in the areas of science, politics, sports, and the arts and entertainment before coming to the US and many made great achievements after arriving. This exhibit highlights some of these Czechs and Slovaks, and their descendants. It is a Who’s Who of Czech- and Slovak-Americans, and some of them may be a surprise.

The NCSML traveling exhibition program is generously supported by American Czech Association, Los Angeles and American Sokol Los Angeles.

    Hi! You will be sending Wilson, KS a traveling exhibit of famous Czech Americans for our Czech Festival July 29 and 30th. Could you please send some information and pictures soon so that we will be able to advertise this attraction?
