Admin History/Bio
Paul LeRoy Bustill Robeson was born April 9, 1898 in Princeton, New Jersey. He was an internationally renowned American bass-baritone concert singer, actor of film and stage, All-American and professional athlete, writer, multi-lingual orator, scholar and lawyer who was also noted for his wide-ranging social justice activism. Robeson was a trade unionist, peace activist, Phi Beta Kappa Society laureate, and a recipient of the Spingarn Medal and Stalin Peace Prize. Robeson achieved worldwide fame during his life for his artistic accomplishments, and his outspoken, radical beliefs which largely clashed with the Jim Crow climate of the pre-civil rights United States. He became a prime target of the right during the McCarthyist era.
Robeson was the first major concert star to popularize the performance of Negro spirituals and was the first black actor of the 20th century to portray Shakespeare's Othello on Broadway. He originated the role of Joe in Show Boat in 1928 and appeared in 11 films.
At the height of his fame, Paul Robeson chose to become a primarily political artist, speaking out against fascism and racism in the US and abroad as the United States government and many Western European powers failed after World War II to end racial segregation and guarantee civil rights for people of colour. His passport was revoked from 1950 to 1958 under the McCarran Act and he was under surveillance by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and Central Intelligence Agency and by the British MI5 for well over three decades until his death.
In 1959, after his passport was reinstated, Robeson was asked to reprise his role in Othello on the stage in Stratford-Upon-Avon in the United Kingdom. The production was directed by Tony Richardson and despite some criticism, Robeson performance was praised unanimously. However, this production proved to be Robeson's last appearance on the stage. During this time, he also attended speaking engagements and performed concerts throughout Europe and the USSR.
Despite persecution and limited activity resulting from ailing health in his later years, Paul Robeson remained, throughout his life, committed to socialism and anti-colonialism as a means to world peace and was unapologetic about his political views. He died in 1976 in Philadelphia, PA at the age of 77.

Administrative History
David Marks was born in Toronto and was the youngest of three brothers. He moved to Hamilton after marrying his wife Helen during the 1950s and opened up a shoe store. They had two children together, Irving and Anita. After eight years, they returned to Toronto. In 1962, he accepted a position as manager of shelter workshops for Jewish Vocational Services (JVS). He then started working for UJA and in 1968 became its campaign director. He served in that capacity for fourteen years. During that time, he helped raise millions of dollars through the campaign and lead some of the earliest UJA missions to Israel. He travelled to Israel more than thirty times and organized the visits of Israeli leaders to Toronto including David Ben-Gurion, Golda Meier, Menachem Begin, Moshe Dayan, and others.
In 1982, he left his position as campaign director and became the director of development at Mount Sinai Hospital. He then opened up a consulting business with three other community professionals, which provided help to other organizations with their fundraising efforts.
In 2004, David passed away after battling cancer. He left behind his wife, two children and four grandchildren.
