Ivan Suryan arrived in New York harbor from Yugoslavia in 1939 knowing no English. He crossed the U. S. on a train and arrived in Anacortes to re-united with his brothers in Anacortes. By 1945 he was a naturalized citizen, and by the time of this article (probably June in the mid 1950s) he owned a home, a car, and was skipper of the SWEET HOME. He worked hard at learning English, especially by watching movies. This article is titled, "First Sight of America Amazes Naturalized Son" and was published in an unknown paper at an unknown date. On the back of the article is an ad for Dairy Queen at 22nd and Commercial, from which the probable dates are established.
