Administrative History
Norman Burns (26 July 1926-14 May 2012) was born in Toronto, the son of Benjamin and Lottie Burnstein. He had one sister; Sadie Rash (b. 21 Aug. 1913-d. 2 Nov. 1979). Benjmain and Lottie were born in Russia, moved to England and then to Toronto in 1902. Norman Burns married Sandy Rochwerg in 1973.
Hyman (b. ca. 1903) and Faige (b. ca. 1903) Rochwerg (nee Kestenbaum) were married in Poland around 1923. Together they had four children: Pearl Wetstein (b. 1925, Poland-d. 1990, Toronto); Bess Felman (b. 15 Aug. 1926, Poland-d. 2002); Norman Ross (b. 1928, Poland-d. 1955); Jerry Ross (b. 16 Aug. 1941, Toronto); and Sandy Burns (b. 16 Oct. 1942, Toronto). In 1929, Hyman immigrated to Hamilton. In 1935, Faige followed with her children; Pearl, Bess and Norman. Shortly after Faige arriving, the family moved to Toronto where they opened up a grocery store on Baldwin Street. Five years later, they had saved enough money to buy their own building across the street at 27 Baldwin, where they reopened their grocery store next door to Mandel's Creamery and Silverstein's Bakery. Sandy recalls the Silversteins allowing members of the community the use of their ovens to bake bread and prepare Shabbat dinners. Their father's brother, Shlomo Meir Rochwerg was the Shamas at Beth Jacob Synagogue.

Admin History/Bio
The Men's Service Group's Honour Roll publication was first issued in 1964 and continues to be published annually. It was primarily conceived of as a fundraising project to raise funds for equipment and research at Baycrest. Individuals and organizations that give donations are honoured in the publication. The Honour Roll also acts as a public relations tool, informing the public about the activities and new developments at Baycrest. As such, it contains articles describing the programs, events, recipients of the "Man of the Year" award, and other important individuals and initiatives at Baycrest.
Scope and Content
Sub-series consists of textual records documenting the MSG's planning, fundraising, and publication of the Honour Roll. Included are meeting notices and minutes, reports, correspondence, an invitation, a photograph, and issues of the Honour Roll.
