Scope and Content
The subjects of the photograph are, left to right: Anne, [Chava?], and Jack Kamarner. This is a posed, formal photograph, taken in Toronto.
Notes
The subjects of this photograph were identified in the original accession list as "Anne, great-grandmother and Jack". It is more likely that [Chava?] is the grandmother of Jack, and that the information was taken down incorrectly, or that the reference was in connection to a later Kamarner generation.
Physical Condition
The photo has been marked by blue pen, particularly around the subjects' heads, and the upper right hand corner of the photograph is bent slightly.

Scope and Content
The snapshot is of an unidentified co-ed group photo at the Delmonte Hotel. Some of the people appear to be the same friends as photographed in photo #20 of the same file. Jack Kamarner may be the individual moving on the steps to the right of the frame, as he is wearing a collared shirt that matches roughly the one worn in photo #20, however the face is blurred, preventing easy identification.
The age of the group appears to be fairly uniform, perhaps in their mid-twenties, suggesting a social organization group activity, or a professional affiliation.

Theodore (Ted) Herman (1912-1945) was a Lieutenant in the Royal Hamilton Light Infantry, R.C.I.C. He was killed in action on April 13, 1945, three weeks before the close of the Second World War. Herman understated his age in order to enlist and was sent overseas in 1943. He was the son of Edward and Eva Herman. According to his entry in the Canadian Jewish Congress' Second World War casualities book, Herman had graduated from the University of Toronto with a Bachelor of Commerce and Master of Arts degrees and was an accountant before his enlistment. It has conversly been stated in a Canadian Jewish News article that he was an attorney.

Admin History/Bio
Lieutenant Victor Oscar Hertzman was born in Toronto in July, 1918. He received his M.D. from the University of Toronto in 1942, and was in the Royal Canadian Army Medical Core during the Second World War. He married his wife Eileen in 1943, and they had two children, Clyde and Owen. Hertzman and his family moved to Vancouver, where he would be a founding member of the Heart and Stroke Foundation of British Columbia and the Yukon, and a chair of the British Columbia Society of Internal Medicine. He died in Vancouver in 1994.
Hertzman specialized in cardiology, and frequently conducted experiments on his sons to prove that carefully prescribed activity was better for heart patients than rest. Prior to these experiments in the early 1960s, this was an idea, but Hertzman research helped turn that idea into an accepted practice. Hertzman's son, Clyde went on to become a doctor whose research would lead to the coining of the now widely used term “biological embedding” to describe how early environment is more a determinant of a child’s future behaviour than genetic makeup. Clyde died on Februrary 8, 2013 of an apparent heart attack.
Scope and Content
The item is a portrait of Lt. Victor Oscar Hertzman.
