ANTHONY J. CHANDRIS
(1924-1984)

Claims to fame include:

• Modernising President of the Union of Greek Shipowners
• Founder of Intercargo
• Leading passenger shipping entrepreneur

ANTHONY J. Chandris was a popular and admired shipowner during his lifetime, and he occupies a special place in Greek and international shipping history since the Second World War.

With roots in the island of Chios, the Chandris family was active in shipping during the age of sail. His father, John D. Chandris, made the family name a presence in the industry during the interwar years, but he died in 1942 at the age of just 52, leaving his widow, Evgenia Chandris, and their two sons, Dimitris (1921-1980) and Anthony to carry on the business.
