Dear friends — The Greek Historical Society of the San Francisco Bay Area is seeking your assistance in locating photographs and/or information regarding Dr. John Nicholas Tavlopoulos.
Died: 10/20/1963 (81 years old)
Dr. Tavlopoulos first office, 696 Mission Street, was at the corner of 3rd and Mission in the heart of San Francisco’s old Greek town. He took care of more Greeks than any other Greek doctor of his era.
He married Lillie Koerber (The Koerber family was very famous in Oakland and Berkeley).
An excerpt from an article regarding Lillie Koerber:
Lillie Louise Koerber, M.D. (1879–1959). A strong and independent woman, Lillie graduated from San Francisco’s Cooper Medical College in 1901 and took up residence in the Mission district, where she spent her entire working life as a physician and surgeon. She was a member of the California Organization of Women Physicians for Federal Recognition and was listed in Who’s Who Among the Women of California in 1922. She brought up a girl she adopted on her own prior to marrying Dr. Tavlopoulos.
Dr. Tavlopoulos had a brother George living in the Stockton area.
From 1917 -1963, they lived at 1145 1185 Valencia Street in San Francisco. Dr. Tavlopoulos remained in practice until the late 1950s. By 1939, he moved his office to 870 Market Street. By 1955, he moved his office to 700 Market Street. By 1959, his office was at 317 Phelan Building.
Dr. Tavlopoulos was an integral part of the 3rd Street Greek community and has a place in the history of the Greek community.
