NAASR is honored by the bequests it has received in 2021.

Longtime Member Bernard L. Zulalian

The National Association for Armenian Studies and Research (NAASR) has received a very generous bequest of $1,206,705 from the estate of Bernard L. Zulalian of Belmont, MA. Among NAASR’s longest serving members, Mr. Zulalian joined the organization in 1964 and was a staunch supporter for over 55 years. He passed away in May 2020.

He cared deeply about NAASR’s mission advancing Armenian Studies. Throughout the years, he took on a variety of roles, serving on various NAASR committees and contributing generously, and he regularly attended programs at the NAASR center. His generous gift will support NAASR’s programming and activities for generations to come.  Click here to read the full tribute.
