Admin History/Bio
The People's Olympics, in Barcelona, Spain, was intended as a protest event against the 1936 Summer Olympics planned for Berlin during the period of Nazi rule. The newly elected left-wing Popular Front government in Spain decided to boycott the Berlin Olympics and host its own games following its election in February 1936. Invitations were made to the nations of the world and it was planned to use the hotels built for the 1929 World's Fair as an Olympic Village. The games were scheduled to be held from July 19 to July 26 and would have therefore ended six days prior to the start of the Berlin games.
A total of 6,000 athletes from 22 nations registered for the games, including boxers Sammy Luftspring and Norman "Baby" Yack from Canada.
Many of the athletes were sent by trade unions, workers' clubs and associations, socialist and communist parties and left-wing groups rather than by state-sponsored committees. Sammy Luftspring and Norman "Baby" Yack were sent with donations from the Canadian Jewish Congress.
With the outbreak of the Spanish Civil War just as the games were to begin, the alternate games were cancelled.
Scope and Content
Sammy Luftspring and Norman "Baby" Yack aboard the S.S. Alaunia on route to Barcelona and the "People's Games".

Norman "Baby" Yack was born Benjamin Norman Yakubowitz in Toronto in 1915. As an amateur bantamweight boxer, Yack won over 90 of 100 fights and in 1936 opted out of competing in the Berlin Olympics as a protest to Nazi rule. Instead, he travelled to Barcelona with fellow Jewish boxer Sammy Luftspring to compete in the People's Olympics, which was cancelled at the last minute due to the outbreak of the Spanish Civil War. Later that year Yack turned pro and under the management of Steve Rocco was the 4th ranked bantamweight in the world. Yack retired in Toronto and died in 1987.
Harry Sniderman was a famous Canadian baseball pitcher who invented the drop pitch. In 1936 he organized the financial backing from the Canadian Jewish Congress that allowed himself, Sammy Luftspring and Norman "Baby" Yack to go to Barcelona for the People's Olympics. His role at the event was to act as coach and organizer for the athletes. Later in life he was the owner of the Warwick Hotel, which was located at the corner of Jarvis and Dundas Street.
Scope and Content
Photograph of Sammy Luftspring, Harry Sniderman and Norman "Baby" Yack aboard the S.S. Alaunia as they travelled to Barcelona for the People's Olympics. They are dressed casually and are standing on the deck of the ship.

Admin History/Bio
Solway notes in his autobiography that Ysaÿe encouraged his pupils to look beyond the study of music alone. He encouraged them to travel and to investigate other arts in order to enrich their understanding of the world.
Notes
Photo is signed with a stylized character, and inscribed on the back, "Vous avez connu ce lieue et vous y avez travaille avec le vrai [lu?]," roughly translated as "You have known this place and there understood its truth." In another hand it has been identified as "Ysaÿe's studio in Brussels." It is unclear who has made these inscriptions.
