Admin History/Bio
B’nai B’rith is the oldest Jewish service organization in North America. It was founded on October 13, 1843 by a group of eleven men in New York City.
Originally called Bundes-Brueder [League of Brothers], with the alternate title of “The Independent Order of B’nai B’rith”, they later shortened their name to simply “B’nai B’rith”, meaning sons of the covenant.
In an attempt to unite Jewish communities, they developed an inclusive membership mandate that does not discriminate against ethnic or religious sects. The initial vision of the organization was to develop a national Jewish organization, which would provide aide to all Jewish citizens. These goals have long since been realized. The organization currently has lodges internationally and B’nai B’rith membership is in the millions.
B’nai B’rith cites its main goals to be: reaching out to those in need, fighting antisemitism and prejudice of any kind, and promoting human rights and world peace. One of their most recognized accomplishments is the formation of the Anti-Defamation League, which combats anitsemitism and promotes human rights.
In Canada, the first B'nai B'rith lodge was founded in Toronto, the Canada Lodge, in 1875, but it folded in 1894. Other lodges were formed in Montreal, in 1881, and Victoria, in 1886. These lodges were disbanded around the turn of the century and the organization did not have much of a presence in Canada until the outbreak of the first World War. Shortly afterwards, in Toronto, B’nai B’rith had fifteen lodges and eleven chapters. The lodges were the men’s groups and the chapters were for the women; in addition, there was also the B’nai B’rith Youth Organization, called the Hillel Foundation, which was located at the University of Toronto.
In Toronto, the Sportsmen Lodge began as a modest sized group of 100 members in 1954, and doubled in membership over the next 10 years. They sponsored an annual baseball night and a sportswriters dinner that honoured an outstanding sports journalist. The dinner was well known amongst journalists and was well attended. The Sportsmen Lodge also hosted an annual Celebrity dinner, at which a outstanding Canadian personality was chosen and honoured for his or her achievements.
The lodge was also active in working with handicapped children and in fundraising campaigns.
Scope and Content
Series consists of images taken by Al Gilbert of the B’nai B’rith Sportsmen Lodge Dinners at the Royal York Hotel in Toronto. The files in this series document three different dinners for the years 1969, 1970 and an unidentified dinner from the 1960s.
Notes
Selection for this series was based on the various activities and functions of the event. The dinner was held as an annual award ceremony and installation for the newly appointed officers of the Sportsmen Lodge. The criteria used for selection included: awards, speeches, installation oaths, entertainment, and dinner tables.

Admin History/Bio
Noted brothers, Nat and Lou Turofsky, began taking photos in 1907. They photographed wedding banquets, social and public events, and celebrities, but were mostly known for their sports photography and quickly established themselves as the premier photographers in the sporting world. Their diverse hockey photographs truly captured the essence of the game, all of which chronicled the Original Six era.
Lou Turofsky was born in 1892 in Chicago to Russian immigrant parents. The family moved to Toronto in 1900, and Lou began work as a photographer at Alexandra Studios in 1907. In 1910, he bought the business and in 1911, he hired his brother Nat to work with him. While Nat never married, Lou married Ruth Seigel in 1936, at the age of forty-five, and had two daughters, Carol (m. Grafstein) and Riki, who is now an opera singer.
Nat and Lou Turofsky were perhaps the most famous sports photographers of the 1940s and 1950s, due in part to their contract as the official photographers of Maple Leaf Gardens from the 1930s until the mid-1950s. They also photographed baseball games for the Toronto Maple Leaf baseball club.
Nat and Lou Turofsky died in 1956 and 1959 respectively.
Scope and Content
This series consists of eighteen photographs taken by the Turofsky brothers from the late 1940s up until 1974. The photographs depict members of the sports community in Toronto, including athletes, managers, newscasters, and reporters, as well as international athletes and celebrities such as Herb Elliot, Danny Kaye, Phil Silvers, and Liberace. Many of the photographs feature Spencer "Spiff" Evans, who was the publicity chief for the Maple Leaf Gardens during the 1940s and 1950s and, in 1963, became the director of public relations for the Toronto Maple Leafs baseball club.
The series has been arranged and described at the item level.
Notes
Associated material note: The Hockey Hall of Fame possesses a Turofsky collection numbering 19,000 negatives.
