Admin History/Bio
Newman Leopold Steiner was born in Tachau, or Tachov (now part of the Czech Republic) ca. 1829, to Wolfgang Steiner and Francisca Rothschild. He was the eleventh in a family of fourteen children. Educated in Vienna, Steiner played an active role in the failed revolution of 1848. Not long after, he left for New York, trained as a stone sculptor, and then moved to Toronto in 1852. He set up a stonecutting and marble merchant business, first on Parliament Street, then King Street, and then at Yonge Street Wilton Avenue, and finally at Wilton and Victoria Street. He is credited with carving the crest above the main door of University College. Steiner was also involved in municipal politics, elected to City Council a total of five times between 1880 and 1885. He was defeated in 1889, but in 1897 he became an Alderman for Ward Three. In 1901, he was appointed Honourary Commissioner to the Pan American Exposition held in Buffalo in 1901. Steiner is considered to be Toronto's first Jewish Alderman and first Jewish Justice of the Peace. Steiner was also a member of St. John's Lodge in the Masonic Order, and was the founder and first president of the German Benevolent Society. Originally involved with Holy Blossom Temple, after 1882 Steiner, his wife Bertha and and their four children were no longer affiliated with the Jewish faith. Members of his family (excluding Steiner) joined the Unitarian Church in Toronto. Steiner married Bertha Sternberger in 1876, who was the daughter of a cantor in New York. They had six children: Herbert, Athur, Ernest, Walter (who died as an infant), Florence and Estelle. Steiner died in 1903 and was buried at Mount Pleasant Cemetery.

Admin History/Bio
Murray Bernard Koffler was born in a four-room flat over his father's drugstore on College Street on January 22, 1924. His parents' names were Leon and Tiana [née Reinhorn] Koffler. Murray married Marvelle Seligman and they had five children named: Leon, Theo, Tom, Adam and Tiana.
Following in his father's footsteps, Murray was educated as a pharmacist and eventually took over the family drugstore when he was twenty-two years old. After making some profitable real-estate investments, he helped to co-found the Four Seasons Hotel chain, and created the first self-serve pharmacy in Canada. His entrepreneurial talents led the way to the creation of the giant pharmacy franchise, Shoppers Drug Mart.
A world renowned philanthropist, Murray Koffler’s donations and commitments have helped fund the creation of the Koffler Centre of the Arts, the Koffler Institute of Pharmacy Management, the Canadian Council for Native Business, the Council on Drug Abuse, and, as well, he has also held positions on numerous boards and organizations. His tireless efforts and achievements have been recognized with many awards including becoming a member of the Order of Canada in 1977.
