The family patriarch, Zelick (also known as Zelig) Wagman, emigrated from Lodz, Poland to Canada around 1903. The following year, his wife Ceril and six children joined him. They included: Charles, Joseph, Etta, Peter, Isadore, and WIlliam. He arrived penniless and earned a living as a peddler. The family lived in the east end of Toronto at 34 Gerard Street.
Zelick founded Z. Wagman & Sons and Toronto Cadmium Plating. Joseph took over his father's business. Charles became a supplier of electrical products, establishing Revere Electric. William and Isadore in turn ran Industrial Wire & Cable and owned the Fashion Building on Spadina Avenue. Finally, Peter owned his own business called P. Wagman & Sons and later Junior Maid Garment Company.
The family became extremely successful over the years. They also were very active in the Jewish community. Zelick was one of the founders of the Henry Street Synagogue, Beth Jacob. William was the co-founder of the YMHA and the Talmud Torah. His brother Joseph was also involved in many Jewish organizations such as Mount Sinai Hospital, Baycrest and the Primrose Club. Joseph and his wife Minnie were also major philanthropists, funding the Joseph E. and Minnie Wagman Centre at Baycrest.

Administrative History
Izzy Greenberg and Anna (nee Nathan) Greenberg immigrated to Ottawa from Romania around 1910. They had six children together: Freda, Harry, Joe, Anne, Helen, and Earl (b. 1920). Izzy likely worked as a peddler. When Anna passed away in 1923 all of the children, except for Freda, were sent to a Jewish orphanage in Montreal (the Montefiore orphanage). The orphanage closed in 1936 when Earl was 16 years old. He came to Toronto where he met Sandy (or Sylvia) Silverman. They were married in 1947. Earl initially worked as a shoe salesman, but later opened his own business, Sanmarcoda, where he bought and sold electronic surplus. He and Sandy had three children together: Marsha, Corey, and David. Sandy worked as a secretary with the provincial government and sold baby's clothing at flea markets on Sundays.
Joseph and Anna Saul came to Canada from Romania in the early 1900s. They had six children together: Sam (b. 1908), Rachel (Rae, b. 1910), Ida, Jeanette, Bonnie, and Dorothy. Joseph abandoned the family around 1923 and travelled to California to become an actor. Although his family never heard from him again, they later recognized him in movies under the name Maurice Samuels. Anna was deaf and mute and worked as a seamstress, making ladies clothing out of her own home. Rae obtained work in a hat factory when she was 13 years old and continued in this trade throughout the remainder of her life. Around 1950 she opened her own hat store at Eglinton and Dufferin called Rae's Hats. She briefly lived above the store with her husband, Sam Silverman.
Morris Silverman, Esther (Gryfe) Silverman, and their two daughters Fae and Tillie immigrated to Hamilton from Romania in 1907. Esther's sister, Lizzie Gryfe, was already living in Hamilton at the time. In 1909, Morris and Esther had another son together, Sam. By 1922, the family had moved to Nassau Street in Toronto where Morris worked as a tailor for Tip Top Tailors. They lived next door to the Saul Family. Sam married Rae Saul in 1927. Sam had had various jobs throughout his life including, cab driver, venetian blind salesman, and driver for a cleaner's.
