Admin History/Bio
Hon. Barnett Jerome Danson, PC, CC, (8 February 1921-17 October 2011) is a former Canadian politician and cabinet minister. His parents were Joseph (b. October 5, 1885) and Sadie (nee Wolfe) Danson (1891-1981). They had 3 children: Bertram, Marilyn (Farber) and Barney. Joseph and Sadie founded Camp Winnebagoe in Muskoka, Ontario. The camp catered to the Jewish community and offered athletic and social programs.
In 1939, at the age of 18, Barney joined the Queen's Own Rifles of Canada. He became a lieutenant and served in the Second World War until he was severely wounded at the Battle of Normandy in August, 1944. As a result of his wounds, Barney lost sight in one eye. This injury led Barney to a lifelong involvement with the Canadian National Institute for the Blind (CNIB) with a focus on education and educational materials for the visually impaired.
After the war, Barney returned to Toronto to work briefly in his family's insurance business before entering the plastics industry, first as a sales manager for Maple Leaf Plastics (1950) and then as founder of his own company, the Danson Corporation (1958). During this time Barney served as the President of the Society of Plastics Industry of Canada.
In 1968, Barney was elected to the House of Commons as a Liberal MP for the Toronto-area riding of York-North. He served in this position until he was defeated in 1978. From 1970-1972 he acted as Parliamentary Secretary to Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau. From 1974-1976, Barney held a position in the Cabinet as Minister of State for Urban Affairs. He later served as the Minister of National Defense from 1976-1979. During this time, Barney and Trudeau founded Katimavik, a national volunteer program for Canadian youth. Barney continued his political career by serving as Canada's Consul General in Boston from 1984-1986.
Outside of politics, Barney has held positions on the Board of Trustees of the Museum of Civilization in Ottawa and spearheaded the advisory committee on the Canadian War Museum which opened in Ottawa on May 8, 2005. The main theatre at the Canadian War Museum is named in his honour. During this time he was also the producer of a 6 part mini-series for the CBC entitled "No Price Too High." The series documented Canada's role in the Second World War. Barney has also acted as the Director of the Canadian Council of Christians and Jews, is a founding member of Temple Emmanu-El in Toronto and was an officer of Sir Arthur Pearson Association of War Blinded.
Over the last several decades Barney has been the recipient of a number of prestigious awards, including Honourary Life Member of Ontario Merit and Non-Status Indian Association (1975), Family of Man Award from B'nai Brith of Canada (1975), Officer of France - National Order of Merit (1994), Churchill Society's award for "excellence in the course of parliamentary democracy", the Vimy Award (2000) and an honourary Doctor of Law (York University, 2006). He was also made a Chevalier of the French Legion of Honour in 2007. In addition, Barney was given the Order of Canada in 1996 and then further promoted to a Companion of Canada in 2007. Barney was also the chancellor of the Royal Military College in Kingston, Ontario for many years and received an honourary degree from them in 1993.
Barney married Isobel (nee Bull) (b. 3 June 1922) in London, England on February 6, 1943. The couple had four sons: Kenneth B., John A. H., Timothy S. B. and Peter T.J. Barney died on 17 October 2011.
Barney's autobiography, "Not Bad for a Sergeant : The Memoir of Barney Danson" was published in 2002.

In August 1959, the Ed Sullivan show travelled to the USSR and taped a show in Moscow titled, "Invitation to Moscow". It aired September 27, 1959. Sylvia Schwartz photographed the show as she was in Moscow at the time.
Acts that were featured at the show included the Barry Sisters (vocal group), Margaret Tynes (opera singer) and Hubert Castle (tight-wire aerialist).
Clara and Minnie Barry were popular American Jazz and Klezmer entertainers of the 1940s to the early 1970s. Born in the Bronx, New York in a Yiddish-speaking home to a Russian-born father and a mother from Vienna, when the sisters decided to entertain by singing in Yiddish, their father told them they would need to do it in the manner of the Old World and not with American accents. The young girls got their first break as singers on WLTH Radio's "Uncle Norman" show for children and were then known as The Bagelman Sisters. They made their first recordings with RCA Records in the late 1930s and began to make a name for themselves as Yiddish jazz singers.
When the Andrews Sisters' version of the Yiddish song, "Bei Mir Bist Du Schön", became a hit, musician and composer Sam Medoff started his "Yiddish Melodies in Swing" radio program on New York's WHN. Before joining the radio show, the sisters made a change of their stage surname from Bagelman to Barry. From 1937 until the mid-1950s they performed on the program, where they would sing jazz recordings in the Yiddish language. Their recordings included popular tunes, such as "Rain Drops Keep Falling on My Head" translated into Yiddish (Trop'ns Fin Regen Oif Mein Kop). They also performed in the New York Catskills resort hotels. They eventually toured with Mickey Katz.During the height of their popularity, they even made appearances on the Ed Sullivan and Jack Paar shows and were one of the few American acts to tour the Soviet Union in 1959. The sisters also entertained Israeli troops during the Yom Kippur War.
Hubert Castle, born Hal Silvers, was a tightrope walker for Ringling Brothers for 20 years and owned his own circus. Born and raised in Oklahoma until the age of 14, he married Mary "Bunny" Tanner, and had two children, Hal Junior and Jan.
Margaret Tynes is an African-American opera, concert and oratorio soprano and singing actress. She earned a Bachelors Degree from North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University. Tynes continued her studies at Julliard School in New York City and later earned a Masters in Music Education from Columbia University. She has performed in the United States, Canada and throughout Europe. She has appeared with leading opera companies of the United States and Europe, including the Metropolitan Opera and the Vienna Staatsoper. Her roles range from Lady Macbeth (Macbeth), Carmen (Carmen), Aida (Aida) and Dido (Dido and Aeneas). She gained international acclaim for her role as Salome at the Festival of Two Worlds in Spoleto, Italy. She became the first American to perform behind the Iron Curtain when she went to Russia with Ed Sullivan for the U.S. State Department.
Scope and Content
Item consists of a group portrait of the Barry Sisters, Hubert Castle and Margeret Tynes onstage with an unidentified man and woman, all waving American flags.

Benjamin Gershon Kayfetz was born on December 24, 1916 in Toronto, graduating from the University of Toronto in 1939, with a B.A. in modern languages. Between the years 1941 and 1943, he worked as a high school teacher in Huntsville and Niagara Falls. In 1943, he joined the war effort, working for the Department of National Defense in Postal Censorship and was responsible for reviewing prisoner of war mail. After the war, Kayfetz traveled to British Occupied Germany where he worked as a censor of telecommunications with the Control Commission until 1947.
Upon returning to Toronto, he was hired as the National Director of Community Relations by the Canadian Jewish Congress (CJC), and as the Executive (National) Director of the Joint Community Relations Committee (JCRC), a CJC - B'nai B'rith cooperative organization.

After his retirement in 1985, he was awarded the Samuel Bronfman Medal by the Canadian Jewish Congress. In recognition of his efforts to promote Human Rights, he was also awarded the Order of Canada in 1986.
In addition to his professional activities, Kayfetz wrote articles for various Jewish publications under both his own name and the pseudonym, Gershon B. Newman, and gave a weekly radio address on CHIN radio addressing various contemporary Jewish issues.
