History Biographical
Born in Montreal in 1929, Gertrude Katz has had a varied career path, much of which is reflected in her donated papers. In addition to her long-time association with Dr. Henry Morgentaler both as a friend and as a co-worker in the administration of his clinics, she studied interpretive dance with Françoise Sullivan in the 1940s, followed by a period after the birth of her two daughters when she taught post-natal calisthenics all the while assisting her husband Carl in his insurance brokerage. In the 1960s she joined the Committee for Neutral Schools where she took an active role. She was also involved in the formative years of the Golden Age Association (now the Cummings Centre for Seniors). Her literary career includes the writing of books of poetry and the teaching of creative writing to prison inmates. These teaching efforts led to the creation of the renowned book The Time Gatherers (1970), a collection of writings by and about the prisoners at St. Vincent de Paul penitentiary. Gertrude Katz was one of the directors of the 'Women's Information and Referral Centre', the first women's centre in Montreal. She served as Chief Financial Administrator for the Morgentaler clinics from 1978 until her retirement in 2005. Her feminist perspective and charitable focus with respect for others' views has been passed on and is carried through by her two daughters and three grandchildren. This portion of the collection also includes information about the WWII service of her husband Carl Katz, one of only two Jewish Canadians (along with Harry Gulkin) who served in the Merchant Marine.

History Biographical
Sophie Soil was born in 1935, in Iasi, Romania. After surviving the Holocaust and the Communist takeover, her family immigrated to Canada from Romania in 1948, following more than a year of being displaced persons in Hungary and Austria. She has been writing for more than twenty years. Mrs. Soil is an artist/ craftperson and is a widely-published poet in various books, magazine and periodicals. She has won many prizes for her work, among them two Pushcart nominations. She has two chapbooks published by Passion Among the Cacti Press and and two full collections published by Publish America. Her personal chronologies are written in freeform verse poignantly spinning autobiographical tales of her sometimes harsh and inconceivable childhood spent in those war-torn years and through the catastrophe that was the Holocaust. Mrs. Soil also holds herbalist and master herbalist degrees, and is a writer of alternative health material. She lives in Toronto with her husband of 61 years. (Source: author's bio., 2014)
