Admin History/Bio
Norman "Baby" Yack was born Benjamin Norman Yakubowitz in Toronto in 1915. As an amateur bantamweight boxer, Yack won over ninety of one hundred fights. In 1936, he opted out of competing in the Berlin Olympics as a protest to Nazi rule. Instead, he travelled to Barcelona with fellow Jewish boxer Sammy Luftspring to compete in the People's Olympics, which was cancelled at the last minute due to the outbreak of the Spanish Civil War. Later that year, Yack turned professional and, under the management of Steve Rocco, became the fourth ranked bantamweight in the world. Yack retired in Toronto. He died in 1987.
Harry Sniderman was a well-known Toronto sportsman. In 1936, Sniderman organized the financial backing from the Canadian Jewish Congress that allowed himself, Sammy Luftspring, and Norman "Baby" Yack to go to Barcelona to participate in the People's Olympics. His role at the event was to act as coach and organizer for the athletes. Later in life he was the owner of the Warwick Hotel, which was located at the corner of Jarvis and Dundas Street.
Scope and Content
Photograph of Sammy Luftspring, Harry Sniderman and Norman "Baby" Yack aboard the S.S. Alaunia as they travelled to Barcelona for the People's Olympics. They are dressed casually and are standing on the deck of the ship.

Admin History/Bio
Around 1934, the Jewish Family Welfare Bureau (JFWB) began a Homemaking Club, which offered mothers a series of lectures in cooking, nutrition, and household budgeting. The club was one of many being formed throughout Toronto through the St. George's School for Child Study at the University of Toronto.
In 1936, the program of the Homemaking Club expanded to offer lectures on chid-care, instruction in sewing and knitting and to provide mothers with a recreational outlet. By 1941 three different types of groups were meeting bi-monthly: parent education groups on the pre-school child, parent education groups on the adolescent child, and recreation groups. The purpose of these groups was to "promote and develop harmonious and good relations in family life."
The first Director of the Homemaking Centre was Dr. Cecil Markowitz and the courses were instructed by leaders trained at the St. George's School for Child Study. The meetings originally took place at the Council House at 44 St. George Street, but a Homemaking Centre was later established for the club at 53 Baldwin Street. Around 1942, JFWB cancelled the Parent Education groups due to difficulty securing trained leaders and a lack of interest among its clientele.
Scope and Content
Series consists of textual records documenting the JFWB's Homemaking Clubs. Included are meeting notices, agendas, and minutes, reports, correspondence, seasonal schedules, attendance sheets, publicity articles and other materials used during group meetings, such as songs and theatrical scripts. Committees and Clubs documented include: the Homemaking Centre Committee, the Parent Education Committee, the Parent Education Group, the Recreation Club, and the Child Study Group.
Access Restriction
Partially closed. Researchers must receive permission from the OJA Director and the head of Jewish Family and Child prior to accessing some of the records.

Administrative History
Club Orion was formed by a group of grade 8 boys in the autumn of 1949 in order to preserve their friendship. They first met under the auspices of the YMHA but later had their own club room over a delicatessen at the corner of College and Brunswick. The club was social in nature, but they also bought jackets and uniforms, participated in sports activities, and planned events such as dances. The members have continued to periodically reunite over the years.
The members of the club include: Stan Bargman, Bernie Bedder, Jack Besser, Phil Bregman, Harold Bronstine, Willie Budman, Stan Cole, Norm Ferguson, Mike Flicht, Joe Flicht, Jerry Goldberg, Frank Gentile, Seymour Greenbaum, Irwin Gould, Sam Helfenbaum, Morty Horowitz, Lou Koblinsky, Irving Mandell, Arnie Marmer, Myer Price, Norm Rosenberg, Howie Saltzman, Jerry Shapero, Owen Shime, Pinky Shulman, Shelly Sokoloff, Alby Sokolsky, Paul Stoneman, Gary Wasserman, Simon Weinberg, and Jack Zweigenbaum.

Admin History/Bio
The Health Club Committee, also known as the Health Club Services Committee, or the Health Services Committee, was one of the earliest standing committees created by the Y.M.-Y.W.H.A. Their original mandate was to oversee the operation of the men's health club. In 1953, a separate women's health club was created alongside the men's and a Women's Health Services Committee was struck to oversee its operations. A new Men's Health Services Committee was created to reflect this new arrangement, while the old Health Club Committee continued to function, but in a new role as a joint committee.
Scope and Content
This file contains textual records relating to the functioning of the Health Club Committee. The records include meeting minutes and agendas, general committee and member correspondence, member lists, reports and financial records.
Notes
There is some overlap in the records kept in the files for the Health Club Committee, the Men's Health Services Committee and the Women's Health Services Committee.
