Admin History/Bio
Rose Abromowitz (1908-2001) was born in Toronto in 1908. Her parents were David (1884-1963) and Sarah (nee Winfield) (1885-1955). David arrived in Toronto in 1906. Sarah and her parents, Jacob and Anna, settled in Scranton, Pennsylvania around 1880. Jacob worked as a grocer and relocated his family to Toronto around 1894. Sarah and David were married at the McCaul Street Synagogue in Toronto on 6 March 1906. They resided at 159 York Street after their nuptuals. David's father, Shevach, served as the cantor at Adath Israel. Rose's siblings included Murray and Oscar. Several members of the family later changed their surname to Abron during the early 1940s.
Rose studied at the University of Toronto and became a doctor in 1932. She married Harry Lahman. In November 1943, Rose and Harry moved from Toronto to Altanta, Georgia. Rose passed away on January 7, 2001 at the age of 93. She was survived by a son, Jerome. Her obituary stated: "She officially retired in 1990, but continued to see herself as a doctor until the day she died."
Scope and Content
The item is a portrait of Dr. Abron.

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.

Edward Kennedy "Duke" Ellington (b. April 29, 1899) was an American composer, pianist, and big band leader.
A prominent figure in the history of jazz, Ellington's music stretched into various other genres, including blues, gospel, film scores, popular, and classical. His career spanned more than 50 years and included leading his orchestra, composing an inexhaustible songbook, scoring for movies, and world tours.
Ellington called his music "American Music" rather than jazz, and liked to describe those who impressed him as "beyond category". These included many of the musicians who were members of his orchestra, some of whom are considered among the best in jazz in their own right, but it was Ellington who melded them into one of the most well-known jazz orchestral units in the history of jazz.
Ellington recorded for many American record companies, and appeared in several films.

Duncan was George Gershwin's personal choice as the first performer of the role of Porgy in Porgy and Bess in 1935 and played the role more than 1,800 times. He led the cast during the Washington run of Porgy and Bess at the National Theatre in 1936, a staging which protested the theatre's policy of segregation. Duncan stated that he, "would never play in a theater which barred him from purchasing tickets to certain seats because of his race." Eventually management would give into the demands and allow for the first integrated performance at National Theatre. Duncan was also the first performer for the role of Stephen Kumalo in Kurt Weill's Lost in the Stars.
In 1945, he became the first African American to sing with a major opera company, and the first black person to sing in an opera with an otherwise white cast, when he performed the role of Tonio in Leoncavallo's Pagliacci with the New York City Opera. In the same year he sang the role of Escamillo, the bullfighter, in Bizet's Carmen. In 1955, Duncan was the first to record Unchained Melody, a popular song with music by Alex North and lyrics by Hy Zaret. The recording was made for the soundtrack of the obscure prison film Unchained. Following Duncan's version, the song went on to become one of the most recorded songs of the 20th century.
Duncan taught voice at Howard University in Washington, D.C. for more than fifty years. While teaching at Howard, he continued touring as a soloist with pianists William Duncan Allen and George Malloy. He had a very successful career as a concert singer with over 2,000 performances in 56 countries. He retired from Howard and opened his own voice studio teaching privately and giving periodic recitals.
He died of a heart ailment at his home in Washington, D.C., in 1998.

Admin History/Bio
Phyllis Marshall (b. Barrie, ON, 4 Nov 1921) was a Canadian singer and actress. She studied piano as a child and was known as a track athlete, but made her debut at 15 as a singer on radio station CRCT. She then performed with Jack Arthur and on CBC radio with Percy Faith.
Her first nightclub engagement was at Toronto's Silver Slipper, September 1938, with the Canadian Ambassadors. Encouraged by the CBC announcer Byng Whitteker to sing blues and jazz, she performed during the 1940s with various Toronto dance bands, including an 18-month stint at Toronto's Park Plaza Hotel 1944-46, with her own trio, and on tour 1947-8 in the USA with the Cab Calloway Orchestra.
A contemporary of Eleanor Collins among early black performers on the CBC, Marshall appeared 1949-52 on radio's 'Blues for Friday' (later 'Starlight Moods') and starred on TV's 'The Big Revue' 1952-4, 'Cross-Canada Hit Parade' 1956-9, and other shows. She performed with Canadian jazz notables including Oscar Peterson and Bert Niosi, and also starred in the Canadian National Exhibition grandstand show. She performed in England on BBC TV in 1959 (The Phyllis Marshall Special) and again in 1964 in nightclubs. Her LP That Girl (1964, Cap FS-614), recorded in the company of US jazz stars Buck Clayton and Buddy Tate, captures Marshall's light, secure singing style and received a Juno Award as 'good music product LP'. Marshall had earlier recorded for Monogram in 1949.
Her second career, as an actress, began in 1956 at Toronto's Crest Theatre and included dramatic and musical roles in stage, radio, and TV productions such as the revue Cindy-Ella (1964), CBC radio's 'The Amen Corner' (1970), and CBS-CTV's Night Heat in the mid-1980s. She continued to sing on occasion - eg, at the ACTRA Awards in 1977, and for Freedom Fest (Harbourfront) in 1988.
Marshall is remembered as one of Canadian television's earliest stars, and as a pioneer among black Canadian performers.
She died in Toronto in 1996.

Bert Niosi (b. London, Ontario, February 10, 1909) was a Canadian bandleader, clarinetist, saxophonist, composer and arranger, known as "Canada's King of Swing".
He began studying flute and saxophone at age nine with Pasquale Venuta in London, Ont, and for a time in his teens played with Guy Lombardo and His Royal Canadians in Cleveland. He then toured on the Loew's vaudeville circuit with his own band, the McPhillips Buescher Boys' Orchestra, which included his brother Joe (bassist, b London, Ont, 26 May 1906, d Toronto 14 May 1977), Tony Briglia (drummer, later a founding member of the Casa Loma Orchestra), and Hugo D'Ippolito (pianist, later a member of the Royal Canadians).
In 1931 Niosi formed a nine-piece band to play at the Embassy Club in Toronto. In 1932 he expanded the band and moved to the Palais Royale dance hall where, in an 18-year residence, he became an institution in Canadian pop music. The band was heard nationally on CBC broadcasts and toured Canada in 1945 and 1946. It included Niosi's brother Johnnie (drummer, b London, Ont, 26 Sep 1914, d Toronto 21 Nov 1965).
Niosi next embarked on a career with the CBC, first as a member 1952-9 of the Happy Gang, and then as music director of the TV series 'Four for the Show,' 'Cross-Canada Hit Parade,' and, 1965-76, 'The Tommy Hunter Show'. He continued to lead a dance band on occasion and returned to the Palais Royale for appearances as late as 1979.
A versatile musician, Niosi was proficient on trumpet and trombone as well as with the alto saxophone and clarinet; accompanied by his brothers he played all four instruments on a CBC TV show ca 1957. On an earlier occasion (1950) he played Mozart's Clarinet Quintet with the Solway String Quartet for CBC radio.
Niosi's recordings included several 78s from the 1940s with a jazz sextet for RCA Victor and Musicana, and one with his orchestra for Zephyr. He also made an LP as leader of the Jack Kane Band (1963, CTL CTLS-5036) and others as a soloist with the Albert Pratz Orchestra (RCI 173 and 174) and with the Johnny Burt Strings (1964, CTL CTLS-5044). His compositions have been recorded by Lucio Agostini and by the pianist Alexander 'Ragtime' Read.
Niosi died in 1987 in Mississauga.
