Admin History/Bio
Eric Exton (1907-1997) was born in Potschappel, Germany. He was expelled in the "Kristall Nacht" purge of students from his college in November 1938, where he studied industrial chemistry. He fled to England, where he was interned and then sent to Canada in 1940, where he spent a year in the Sherbrooke internment camp for refugees.
Eric and Esther Exton were married on August 17, 1948. They had two children named Sybil and Lennie. Esther was a dressmaker for many years and Eric worked in a variety of different positions, eventually starting the first mortgage investment corporation to be publicly traded in Canada.
Eric was president of the Eglinton Lodge B'nai B'rith in 1959, President of Hillel in 1970, and Chairman of the Inaugural Convention of the Federated Zionist Organization of Canada in 1967. He also held the positions of Treasurer, Vice-President, and President of the Toronto organization of the Jewish National Fund. Finally, he served as President of Baycrest Centre for Geriatric Care for a three year term.
Esther Exton was also a member of the Eglinton Chapter B'nai B'rith and was President for one term and co-chairman of B'nai B'rith Women's Israel Bond Committee. She was also co-chairman for the Women's Division of United Jewish Appeal Israel Special Fund campaign and President of the Women's Auxiliary of Baycrest Centre for Geriatric Care.
Both Eric and Esther were devoted to the cause of Israel and the Jewish community in Toronto. Their dedication was passed on to their two children who, following their parents lead, have taken active roles within the Jewish community.
Scope and Content
File consists of negatives documenting the Negev dinner held in tribute to Eric and Esther Exton.
The evening's programme included presentations and speeches from the following: Robert R. Hall, Frank Wolfe, Rabbi Erwin Schild, Rabbi J. Benjamin Friedberg, Hon. David Ariel, Nathan Scott, Jack Gwartz, Jack Friedman, Abe Posluns, Nathan Starr, Dr. Mark A. Siegal and Joseph Kerzner.
