It is with great regret that we received the news of the death, on April 24, of Eduardo Mayone Dias at the age of 94.
He was a well known figure who gave much to the Portuguese community in the USA in the fields of culture and education, and was the author of several works related to the importance of relations between the Azorean Diaspora and the Azores, focusing on the subject of Portuguese emigration to America, which ended up leaving a rich legacy to those who remain, as a result of his brilliant work during his lifetime.
Eduardo Mayone Dias was, without a doubt, a great impeller in “building bridges” over the Atlantic, joining generations and promoting knowledge across borders, as well as affirming the presence of the Portuguese community in American society.
