This series’ original provenance is difficult to pinpoint, but the files before 1937 are likely to have belonged to Maurice A. Solkin when he was Executive Secretary of the Toronto office in the 1930s. Since the original series included correspondence addressed to Solkin’s successors, it is possible that Solkin’s files were inherited by them, used and/or added to: by Mandel Kraicer in the 1940s, Dan Drutz in the 1950s and Louis Poch in the 1960s and 1970s.
