Hart, Editor/Publisher (M.A. 1974, B.A. 1970, Phi
began editing and publishing Serb World U.S.A.in 1984. Prior to that, she had spent several years researching early South Slav immigration to the United States, published a few journal articles, and was several times a featured speaker on the subject. Her early works are based on primary documents and oral history, and much of that focused on Serbs in the American West—Bisbee and Globe in Arizona; Galveston, Texas; and White Pine County, Nevada.
In the magazine, she has turned to cultural topics which include an exploration of the Sokolmovement, a description of The Slav Epicby Alphonse Mucha, and the development of "An Alphabet for the Slavs," the story of Cyrillic. In addition, she is the magazine's primary translator of works from Serbo-Croatian into English for the occasional bi-lingual format.
Among her major translations are the 1992, original English version of Dr. Stojan Lazarevic's History of the Belgrade Choral Society; numerous excerpts from Dr. Jovan Cvijic's (1865-1927) studies of the Balkan Peninsula; and English renderings of over 100 "Letters from Home" (1903-1945) contained in the rare Kosich "Srbin iz Like"Collection.
George Kosich, Chief
joined the magazine in 1984 just after he retired from a 30-year career as an executive in the brewing industry. He is a native of Wisconsin and long-time Milwaukee resident now living in Tucson.
His over 60 feature articles are proof of his wide interest in American Serbs, especially young professionals. He has interviewed artists, athletes, attorneys, judges, and scientists from coast to coast. He also took an in-depth look at Maximilian's Miramar and at cilimweaving in Old Serbia.
However, in the spring of 1985, he made history when he wrote "Mileva Marich of Novi Sad," one of the first accounts in English to conclude that Mileva Marich Einstein was a well-educated scientist in her own right. George Kosich is the master of the short article—focused, sharp, and witty.
Michael D. Nicklanovich,
Feature Writer (M.S. 1966, B.S. 1964)
is an extraordinary writer at home with countless subjects. In addition to a book of poetry and two science textbooks, he began writing for the magazine while he was a professor of biology in Miami, Florida. He has since retired.
His over 100 feature articles extend from a 5-part series on Serbia in World War I to "Michael the Heavenly Warrior." Following the rivers and mountains, he has explored the Balkan peninsula. Tracing the origins of foods and herbs, he has discovered many secrets of the region.
In 1988, he brought the "Pirates of the Adriatic," the history of the Uskoks, and the "Serbs of No Man's Land," the history of the Military Frontier, to Serb World U.S.A.readers. In 1990 and in 1993, he spotlighted American Serbs who had won Pulitzers. The Montenegrin connections to the Merry Widowand the Serbian route of the Orient Express were popular favorites as is his series on America's steel mill towns.
Philip D. Hart,
Production Manager, Writer (M.A. 1975, B.A. 1970)
is one production manager who does everything from typesetting and design to writing feature stories. His original layouts are masterful, an expert selection of sharp images, the effective use of screens and color, and the drawing of original maps.
He is also a professional historian and former museum administrator, and several of his over 50 articles have found their way into bibliographies throughout the country. He began with a ground-breaking series on the American Serbs in the OSS. His article on Indiana Serb Matt Leach added an important chapter to the John Dillinger saga, and his series on the changing maps of the Balkans have included "Balkan Tightrope," "Flash Point," "Revolt in the Pashalik," and the "Treacherous Road to Autonomy."
Milan Opacich, Music
is an all-around tamburitzamaster—a performer, an instrument builder, a teacher, a historian, and a writer—a man who makes both beautiful music and beautiful tamburitzas. Through his fifty years of experience, research, and writing, he has documented the contributions of countless musicians to the 100-year-old tamburitzatradition in the New World. Over 100 of his articles have appeared in his regular column, "Milan Opacich Presents," in Serb World U.S.A. and in his book Tamburitza America available through Black Mountain Publishers.
made her first cake when she was just 8 years old, and her mother, Marta, gave her free reign in the kitchen. That was over 70 years ago, and she has loved cooking ever since. In fact, she married a chef, Andrew M. Nicklanovich, and spent over forty years in the restaurant business. She knows Serbian food, of course, but is just as at home with chili or apple pie.
Over the past 22 years, she has done what few great cooks would ever do: revealed her favorite recipes and treasured secrets. Most of her Serbian dishes were unwritten, taught to her by her mother and close friends. The recipes she has published in Serb World U.S.A.are all authentic. Each was prepared according to exact measurements and then photographed. They are guaranteed, kitchen-tested, and comprise an extraordinary record of the finest Serb cooking.
was a scientific illustrator in her native Krakow, Poland. Since coming to America in the early 1980’s, she has branched out into original oils, exhibit design—and illustrating Serb World U.S.A.'s charming fairy tales. She draws on research and her own knowledge of Slavic folklore, plus a love of the fantastic, to bring the imaginary world of Serbian folk tales to life.
Holly Clark, Circulation
Manager (M. Ed. 1998, B. Ed. 1992)
will receive the orders from this website—after all, she designed it and circulation is her specialty—renewals, new subscriptions and gifts, back issue orders, special requests! After nearly 10 years in the classroom, the former teacher has turned her extraordinary organizational skills to publishing.
Serb World U.S.A.has published articles from numerous sources. Much has been reprinted from the classic works of Vuk Stefanovic Karadzic, Jovan Cvijic, and others.
The magazine has been very fortunate to have attracted the interest of many contemporary authors. Some, like William Jovanovich, need no introduction. Others are known through their outstanding and highly original work published in Serb World U.S.A.
To the contemporary authors is due much of the credit for Serb World U.S.A.'sexceptional variety. They have chosen great subjects. Along with the staff, the contemporary contributors have been telling the story of Serbs, one article at a time, for twenty-three years, in over 130 issues.
