Admin History/Bio
Max Wolfe began peddling fruit and vegetables as a young man; he purchased a horse and wagon and would buy his produce from the Toronto Wholesale Fruit Market. In 1909, he bought a building at 613 Queen St. and starting selling wholesale produce with his cousin Osher Weinstein. After this business folded, Max and his brother Maurice started a new business selling oats, hay, grains and potatoes. In 1914, this business expanded and they began selling general produce under the name of Ontario Produce Company. After the Second World War, they expanded the business again into a grocery firm and changed the name to the Oshawa Wholesale Limited. This business was very successful, and eventually the brothers acquired the IGA franchise.
Max was married to Beatrice Albert in 1936. They had two children named Phyllis and Harold.
Max was a long time member of Beth Tzedec Congregation and the predecessor Beth Hamidrash Hagadol. An annual scholarship is awarded in his name through the Hy Cooper Trust Fund of Beth Tzedec's Men's Club to a student seeking to pursue Jewish Studies.
In 1966, Max and Maurice were honoured at a testimonial dinner by the Toronto Wholesale Fruit Produce Merchants Association. They were awarded the Celebrity of the Year Award in 1969 by the Sportsmen's Lodge, B'nai B'rith.
Scope and Content
Item consists of a photograph of Max and Maurice Wolfe inside the Toronto Wholesale Fruit Market. The Wolfe brothers are positioned in the forefront, and appear to be engaged in a business transaction concerning a crate of strawberries. The portrait looks staged and may have been used for an advertisement or a newspaper article featuring the Wolfe brothers.

Admin History/Bio
The Amalgamated Dawes Road Trustees (ADRT) is a non-profit body that was established in 1950. Its primary mandate has been to oversee and maintain the Jewish cemetery located at Dawes Road, which was established around 1903. This has involved maintaining the grounds, fixing and straightening monuments, and beautifying the surroundings. All funds that they receive are spent on the maintenance of the cemetery. In 1953, the ADRT took over responsibility for the Jones Avenue cemetery as well, at the request of Beth Tzedec Congregation after the merger of its two predecessor congregations who owned the two cemeteries.
Previously, ADRT reported to the Canadian Jewish Congress, however, was an autonomous entity with independent decision-making powers. The Trustees that run it are drawn from the congregations and societies who own plots at these two cemeteries. During the early years, there were also representatives from the CJC and the United Jewish Welfare Fund of Toronto.
In 1950, there were 34 groups that possessed cemetery plots, and today, there are 51. Some of the larger and more prominent ones include Beth Tzedec, Temple Sinai, Beth Emeth, Beth David, the Toronto Hebrew Benevolent Society, the United Jewish People's Order and the Keltzer Sick Benefit Society. The ADRT office was originally located at 150 Beverley Street. It later relocated to 3169 St. Clair Avenue East, closer to the cemetery.
Custodial History
The records appear to have been donated by Kurt Kramer, Administrative Secretary for the Amalgamated Dawes Road Trustees.
Scope and Content
The records in this fonds were produced by the ADRT and support their activities. They include legal documents, correspondence, meeting agendas and minutes, perpetual care trusts, auditor reports, interment information, burial certificates, foundation documents, burial charts and a small number of blueprints.
Notes
Associated material note: the Canadian Jewish Genealogical Society of Toronto has produced a database for the burial records and has placed 13,000 entries from the Dawes Road cemetery on the Jewish Gen JOBR Web site.
