In any discussion of the institutional completeness of the Croatian diaspora in the United States during the last half of the 20th century, the name of Karlo Mirth will surely stand out. As a publisher, editor and writer, he has been at the center of two major publishing successes, Croatia Press (1947-1980) and the Journal of Croatian Studies (1960- ), and has played a prominent role in the Croatian Academy of America.

Karlo Mirth was born on July 15, 1917 in the town, now city, of Otocac, in the Gospic-Senj province of Croatia. As Mirth would explain during a 1998 interview, "I wrote about all events which I felt were important for Croatia, and I was especially interested in writing documentary reviews of the cultural and political life of Croats outside of Croatia." His diverse and numerous contributions to the leading Croatian diaspora publications would certainly confirm the above statement. Mirth's extensive writing, editing and publishing activities, point to a man with immense energy, enthusiasm, focus and discipline. This discipline and enthusiasm would characterize his entire approach to presenting Croatia and the Croats both to an English-speaking audience and to the Croatian diaspora.

Mirth continues to be actively engaged in the work of the Croatian Academy of America and of the society's Journal of Croatian Studies, where he has been a managing editor since its launch in 1960 and has "carried the lions share and burden of work." In recognition of his "tireless work on behalf of the Academy and its Journal" he was named Honorary President for Life in 1993.

"Zivot u emigraciji" was published by Matica Hrvatska, Zagreb, 2003.

En cualquier análisis de la complitud institucional de la diáspora croata en los Estados Unidos durante la segunda mitad del Siglo XX, el nombre de Karlo Mirth seguramente se destacará. Como editor y escritor, estuvo en el centro de dos publicaciones de éxito, Croatia Press (1947-1980) y el Journal of Croatian Studies (1960- ), y tuvo un rol prominente en la Croatian Academy of America.

Karlo Mirth nació el 15 de julio de 1917 en el pueblo -ahora ciudad- de Otocac, en la provincia de Gospic-Senj de Croacia. Como el propio Mirth explicó durante una entrevista en 1998, "Escribí sobre todos los eventos que sentía fueran importantes para Croacia, y estaba particularmente interesado en escribir crónicas documentales de la vida cultural y política de los croatas fuera de Croacia". Sus diversas y numerosas contribuciones a las publicaciones líderes de la diáspora croata confirmarán con certeza la afirmación anterior. Las extensas actividades de Mirth como escritor y editor indican que es un hombre con inmensa energía, entusiasmo, focalización y disciplina. Esta disciplina y entusiasmo caracterizó todo su forma de presentar a Croacia y a los croatas tanto a la audiencia angloparlante como a la diáspora croata.

Mirth continua participando activamente en el trabajo de la Croatian Academy of America y en la publicación de esa sociedad Journal of Croatian Studies, del cual fue su editor ejecutivo desde su lanzamiento en 1960 y cargó con "la parte del león del peso de su trabajo". En reconocimiento de su "trabajo incansable por la Academia y su Journal of Croatian Studies" Mirth fue nombrado Presidente Honorario Vitalicio en 1993.
