Accession consists of one men's YMHA ring that was owned by Louis Green.
The ring was in the possession of Louis's son, Irving, who donated it to the OJA. He explained that Louis never really wore the ring (perhaps only a few times) and kept it in a drawer for many years.
Louis Green (1900-1978) came to Canada from Lithuania around 1921. He worked as a furrier and owned his own shop, J. and L. Green Fur Company, which was located on Spadina Ave. The company was named after Louis and Joe Green (unrelated), but Louis was the sole proprietor. They made inexpensive fur coats, which they sold to Eaton's and other small stores. Louis met his future wife, Frances Saperia (1904-1995), when she entered his store with a friend to shop for a coat. They married around 1927 and had two children together: Joan Kerbel (1930-1995, married Norman Kerbel) and Irving Green (b. 1932). Louis was actively involved in the Farband of Lithuanian Jews, and was also a member of a men's social group of the YMHA.
