Telemachus (Telemaque) Thomas Timayenis Ph.D.[1] often T. T. Timayenis (1853-1918) was a Greek-American professor, novelist, playwright and one of the first published opponents of Jewish supremacism in the United States. Timayenis was also one of the first to formulate a discourse on the Jewish Question along racial lines in the United States, rather than considerations of religious doctrine.[2]

Early life

Timayenis was born in Smyrna, Asia Minor and educated in the schools of Athens. He came from a prominent Greek family. He father Thomas Timayenis (died May 29, 1882) was a professor of languages at the University of Athens.[3] His mother Cotine (Fotini?) Rodacanachi Timayenis[4] was the sister to J. M Rodacanachi the consul of Greece in Boston.[5]

Academic career

In 1874 Telemachus Timayenis taught at the Springfield Collegiate Institute, a preparatory school in Springfield, Massachusetts. In 1879 he was a professor of classical Greek at the New York Hellenic Institute and the Chautauqua School of Languages. In 1886 he was the director of the New York School of Languages.[6] Timayenis taught the children of some of America’s richest families including the Rockefellers.

Opposition to Jewish supremacism

In 1888 he left his academic work and established Minerva Publishing Company in New York. Minerva Publishing was the first company in American to publish books critical of Jews.[7] Timayenis authored three book on the Jews: The Original Mr. Jacobs: A Startling Exposé, ‎The American Jew: An Expose of His Career‎, and Judas Iscariot: An Old Type in a New Form. In The Original Mr. Jacobs--a title used to explain the "real Jew"--Timayenis acknowledges the work of French journalist Edouard Drumont and his 1886 book La France Juive (Jewish France). The Original Mr. Jacobs sold over 200,000 copies and went into its thirtieth edition[8] ‎with twenty printings.[9] In The American Jew Timayenis provided several illustrations showing physical characteristics on how one might identify a Jew. [1]

Jewish reaction was predictable. They first called for a boycott of the books and when that didn’t work they began to issue death threats by mail--at times six a day--against Timayenis, his wife and child. Others offered to pay Timayenis money to destroy the plates of the books and stop exposing the activities of the Jews. Timayenis steadfastly refused and said he only wrote the truth.[10]

Timayenis also had planned to launch an anti-Jewish paper to be called The Anti-Semite which never appeared.[11]

Later life and family

By 1897 he had moved back to Boston. From 1909 to 1916 Timayenis published and edited a monthly Greek-American newspaper The Eastern and Western Review .

Telemachus Timayenis was a Mason[12] and a member of the Greek Orthodox Church.[13] His brother, Demosthenes T. Timayenis, was the consul for Greece in Boston.[14] Another brother Plutarch T. Timayenis also lived in Boston.
