Scope and Content
Accession consists of records related to the Hatikvah chapter of Toronto Hadassah. Included are speeches and a president's report as well as two photographs of the chapter's 35th anniversary. There are also two photographs of a presentation to Jack Maldaver form the B'nai Brith Lodge, Brantford. Individuals identified in the two photos include: Harry Solmon, Max Sherman, Dave Noble, Gordon Henkle, Harry Tulchinsky, Joe Poss, Itzik Sherman, Sam Sherman, Max Gazer, Lou Kwitko, Mr. Lipsy, Noach Zaltz, Harry Freedman and Louis Henkle.
The Hadassah records belonged to Kathryn Solmon, Arlene Gryfe's maternal aunt. She was at one point involved with Hadassah, but according to her son Kenneth Solmon, not the Hatikvah chapter and thus the reason for her possession of these records is unclear.
The two photographs of Jack Maldaver were in the possession of Dr. Cyril Gryfe. Indentification of individuals were supplied by Mr. Harvey Ross, a friend of Cyril's whose father is pictured in the photo.
