The subjects of the photograph are, left to right: Anne, [Chava?], and Jack Kamarner. This is a posed, formal photograph, taken in Toronto.
Notes

Admin History/Bio
Rebecca Kamarner (née Huenstein) (1882-1975) was born in Russia and lived there until her early adulthood. She married Harry Kamarner (1877- 1962) in 1902 and immigrated to Toronto around 1904. Mrs. Chava Kamarner (1847-1929), possibly Harry’s mother, may have immigrated at a later date and lived with the family in Canada. Rebecca and Harry had three children: Bessie (b. 1903), Anne (b. 1906?), and Jack (1907?-1986). Harry and Rebecca lived on 35 Bellevue Avenue in 1925 and later resided at 72 Barton Street.
From the date of her arrival as an immigrant to Canada, Mrs. Kamarner was involved in charitable work through such organizations as The Hebrew Women’s Convalescent Home established in 1936 (of which she was the President and founder), The Hebrew Maternity Aid Society, and The Women’s Auxiliary Toronto Hebrew Free School. During the First and Second World Wars she was actively involved in social aid and the sponsorship of orphans, and she worked as a nurse during the influenza pandemic that began in 1918 and had its greatest effect on the Jewish community in Toronto in 1919 and 1920. She was one of the earliest members of the Toronto Hadassah-Wizo (Schamira Levine chapter) and was also actively involved in fundraising for the Women’s Auxiliary of The New Mount Sinai Hospital, of which she was listed as a charter member. She served on the Board of Directors of The Jewish Home for the Aged and was a preeminent name in the promotion of convalescent care and social advocacy for the disadvantaged throughout her lifetime.
Harry, Nathan "Nutta" (d. 1956), and Louis Kamarnar were men’s clothing and furnishings retailers and owned the Merchant’s Clothing Co. store on 131 Queen Street West. Harry, his son Jack, and his son-in-law Harry Granger, were also affiliated with the Judean Knights of Pythias, a fraternal order.
Bessie Kamarner married Sam Robins (b.1893) in 1922 and they lived together at 273 Queen Street East. Anne Kamarner was married to Harry Graner (d. 1986) in 1931. Jack Kamarner lived in Toronto and married Jeanne (née Rubin). They had two daughters, Ann and Nancy.
Scope and Content
Fonds consists of family photographs, a scrapbook, and other textual records, both of a personal nature and those relating to the volunteer work done by Rebecca Kamarner. These records document her community social work, her affiliation with the Women’s Auxiliary and her fundraising efforts for the Hebrew Women’s Convalescent Home, later the Mount Sinai Convalescent Home, in Toronto.

Scope and Content
This accession contains one original and one copy of a digital video recording documentary relating to the life of Colonel Jack Marshall. It was produced by his nephew, Dr. Lawrence Gaum in 2003.
Administrative History
Jack Marshall was born in 1919 in Glace Bay, Cape Breton. His parents were Louis and Rose and he was the seventh of 11 children. His father owned a tailor shop and made a fair living. Unfortunately, Louis passed away in 1933 and the family had a difficult time making ends meet after his death during the Depression years. Jack was a fair student and a talented athlete. After he graduated, he completed a year of business studies at Mount Allison University but had to drop out due to lack of funds.
He enlisted in the Royal Canadian Ordinance Corps on 6 May 1942. He was first stationed in Aldershot, England, where he was selected as a pre-officer cadet. Rather than attending officer training school, Jack decided to join the North Shore New Brunswick Regiment and head off for battle. His regiment partiicpated in the Normandy Beach invasion in 1944. He served for 58 days and after surviving that bloody battle, he returned to England to complete his officer training courses. After he graduated, he was appointed a Lieutenant with the Canadian Infantry Corps. For the following year he served in Holland and Germany and took over the D Company platoon.
While in England, he married Sylvia Rothman who was from Britain. Towards the end of the war, he was promoted to the rank of Captain. The couple moved to Canada and established roots in Glace Bay and later Cornerbrook, Newfoundland, where they had their three children. Jack opened up a chain of drug stores on the island. In 1950, he joined the Royal Newfoundland Regiment and was promoted in 1953 to Major and Commander. He later was raised to the rank of Lieutenant Colonel, and ultimately in 1959, was apointed Commander of the Royal Newfoundland Regiment.
In 1968 he decided to run for office for the Federal Conservative Party.He won his seat and served as the MP for his riding up until 1974. In 1978, Prime Minister Trudeau named him to the Senate. He subsequently established and chaired the Senate Sub-Committee on Veterans Affairs. During this time and later on, he became known as one of the great advocates for Canadian veterans. During the 1990s, in fact, he served as National Commander of the Jewish Veterans and was later appointed Grand President of the Canadian Legion.
He retired from the Senate in 1994 at the age of 75 and opened up a bed and breakfast with his second wife, Evelyn White. In 2004, Jack Marshall passed away at the age of 84.
