Administrative History
Melvin Shields was born in 1940 and was raised in Toronto. He was the son of Harry Shields and Esther Shields (née Iseman). Harry came to Canada after the First World War with his parents and attended school in Toronto. His family name was Sheldlowsky, which was changed to Shields before he married Esther in 1937. They had another son, Lorne, who was born in 1943.
During their early years of marriage, the couple lived with Esther's parents, Rose and Harry. During the war, the Iseman's helped bring to Canada two Jewish boys, the Furmans, from England. The boys stayed with friends of the family when they arrived in Canada. The boys' parents wrote to the Isemans and were very appreciative of the sacrifices they made for their children.
The family took many trips together to Niagara Falls, Pontypool, and other camping resorts. The couple also took trips with friends and adult family members to Acapulco and Miami. When they were older, the boys were sent to summer camps such as Camp Tamarack and Camp Rockwood, where Mel was a counsellor.
Harry owned a sportswear business called Shields Sportswear Ltd., which was located at 349 Queen Street West. Esther served on the board of the Mozirer Society for many years.

Biography
Melvin Douglas Lastman was born in Toronto on 9 March 1933, the son of Rose and Louis Lastman. Raised in the Kengsington Market area, he attended Ryerson Public School and Central High School of Commerce, where he was president of the school council. Lastman left high school to work at an appliance store and, in 1955, opened his own appliance store. By the late 1960s, he owned a chain of forty stores, Bad Boy Appliances, throughout Ontario. Lastman lived in North York and, in 1969, ran successfully for the North York Board of Control. In the 1972 municipal election, he was elected as mayor of North York, a position he held for twenty-five years until North York became part of the newly created City of Toronto on 1 January 1998. With the provincially-mandated creation of the new City of Toronto by the amalgamation of Metropolitan Toronto and the six local municipalities, Lastman decided to run for mayor against the other major contender, former City of Toronto mayor Barbara Hall. He won the 1997 election and was sworn in on 1 January 1998. Lastman was easily re-elected in the 2000 mayoralty election; however, in February 2003, Lastman announced that he would not be seeking re-election in the November municipal election.
In 1953, Mel Lastman married Marilyn Bornstein. They have two married sons and six grandchildren.

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.

Scope and Content
Accession consists of a Club Orion yearbook which documents the history of the club, predominately through photographs.
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.
