Admin History/Bio
Joseph Bernard Dunkelman was born on 18 December 1911 in Toronto. His parents, David (1883-1978) and Rose (nee Miller), were married on 19 January 1910. Originally from Poland, David came to Canada with his parents in 1895 and settled in Toronto. Rose was born in Philadelphia in 1889 and moved to Canada at the age of 13 and resided there until her death in 1949 at the age of 59. Her father, Harry, was an entrepreneur in the menswear business and it was through his business contacts that she met and married David at the age of 20. They had 6 children : Joseph, Ernest, Zelda, Veronica, Theodora and Benjamin, who fought in both the Second World War and the Israeli War of Independence.
In 1911, David Dunkelman founded Tip Top Tailors, a high end men's clothing store, which currently has about one hundred branches nationwide. Joseph ran Tip Top Tailors from the early 1940s until the late 1940s when Ben returned from the war and bought Joseph's shares of the business. The business was sold to Dylex who subsequently sold it to Grafton-Fraser in 2000. Joseph used the money he received from selling his share of the family business to invest in a television and movie production company (possibly Sony Screen Gems).
Joseph married Jean Lenore Samuels (born 25 February 1912). Joseph and Jean had 3 children, Richard Howard (Dick), Peter and a third child who was handicapped and institutionalized. After Joe and Jean's marriage ended, Joe married Claire Olsen and remained with her until his death. They had one son, Lex. Claire was a movie reviewer and television interviewer.
Scope and Content
The item is a portrait of Joseph Dunkelman.
