Anthony Petropulos (1883-1972) left his home in Potamia, Greece at the age of 14, and initially immigrated to Massachusetts by way of Canada. He studied at American International College and worked in various factories, including as a foreman for General Electric in Massachusetts, before he moved to Lewiston.

Petropulos worked at a shoe factory in Auburn prior to being appointed to the Lewiston Police force from 1918 to 1945. He continued his civic involvement after he retired, serving as an Alderman, on the Lewiston City Council, and the Lewiston Republican City Committee.
