Awaiting Review
Nick Name Orphanage
Earliest Known Date 1924
Location Syra, Greece
Nine Class Senior

The San Francisco Chronicle, Dec. 2, 1924, quoting the newsletter of Near East Relief, an American charity group, says the NER sponsored a baseball tournament for its orphanages in the Near East. "The winner this year was from the American orphanage for girls at Syre," who beat a boys team 19-17 for the title. 

The games were played at Salonika (Thessaloniki).

Is this "Syre" Tyre in Lebanon? Or a variant spelling of Syria? Most probably "Syra" (island of Siros) in Greece, where the NER had a large refugee camp.
