Solon J. Vlasto (1852-1927) founder of the Greek language daily newspaper Atlantis, immigrated to the United States in 1873. A well-educated man from an upper-class Cretan family, he eventually formed an import-export partnership with his brother Demetrius J. Vlasto (1869-1944).

The Vlasto brothers were active in New York City's Greek-American community. Solon served as president of the Greek Society of New York, Athena, and was an exarch of the Greek Orthodox Church.
