Jews in Danger

Filed under: found in the archives, interesting or noteworthy archival material — susanwoodland @ 3:38 pm

From Sanford Solender’s 1973 correspondence “G” folder, 2 letters from Carl Glick.

This group of  alphabetical files arranged by year (1971-1977) include the correspondence of Lawrence Buttenwieser, President of FJP 1971-1974, during the early part of Sanford Solender’s tenure as Executive Vice-President.  Apparently both Solender and Buttenwieser had sent letters of congratulations to Carl Glick upon his assuming the presidency of the Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society (HIAS).  Carbon copies of those letters were not in the “G” file, but they may turn up in a subject file elsewhere in the collection.

The brief replies from Glick to each of the Federation leaders are unusual.

Glick to Buttenweiser, March 27, 1973

“Jews in danger”?  A joke perhaps?

Glick to Solender, March 27, 1973

We may find out more if we find other correspondence between Glick and/or Solender and Buttenwieser in another box.  Stay tuned.
