Admin History/Bio
Captain Emmanuel Farber was born in Toronto on October 19, 1918. His parents, Morris and Mary (nee Madorsky) came to Canada from Russia and opened a confectionery store on Queen Street. They had two sons, Emmanuel (Manny) and Lionel (Lester) and one daughter, Sophie.
Manny married Ruth Wilma on 16 April 1942. The couple had one daughter, Naomi Beth.
After completing his training at Hamilton General Hospital, Manny graduated with a medical degree and a specialization in anatomic and clinical pathology from the University of Toronto in 1942. From 1943-1946, Manny served with the Royal Canadian Army Medical Corps (R.C.A.M.C.). His rank was Captain upon discharge. Later, Manny moved to the United States to continue his graduate work at the University of California, Berkeley, receiving a PhD in Biochemistry in 1949. After graduation, Manny and Ruth wanted to return to Canada, but Manny was unable to find work since at the time no Canadian university was accepting full-time Jewish faculty members in their medical schools. Instead, the Farbers remained in the United States and Manny taught at a number of American universities including Tulane University, the University of Pittsburgh (Jefferson Medical College) and Fels Cancer Research Institute of Temple University. Heavily involved with medical research in the fields of pathology and biochemistry, Manny was a member of the Surgeon General’s Committee on Smoking and Health of the U.S. Government (1961 – 1964) and sat on the Board of Directors of the American Association of Cancer Research from 1964-1967 and 1970-1973. He acted as President of the same organization from 1972-1973.
In 1976, Manny and Ruth found the academic climate in Canada more open to Jewish faculty members and returned to Canada to continue teaching. Manny was appointed Chairman of the Department of Pathology and of Biochemistry at the University of Toronto. In 1986 he became a Professor Emeritus with the same departments. He remained teaching at U of T until his professional retirement in 1993.
Ruth passed away in 1993. In 2000, Manny married his close companion, Henrietta Keller Schleider, and the couple settled in Columbia, South Carolina.
