History Biographical
Allan Raymond (1922- ) was born in Lithuania and came to Montreal in 1928. He is a researcher and lecturer of Canadian Jewish history and an avid collector of Canadian Judaica. Raymond also considered himself a romantic poet. He had a successful career as an insurance broker in Montreal and during World War II served overseas with the Royal Canadian Air Force. Amongst his varied community activities he served as public relations director of the Westmount Historical Association, Montreal Jewish Historical Society, St. James Literary Society, One Parent Families Association, Parents Without Partners Association, the YMHA Chaverim Group, Avant Garde Singles Group and S-Group. Mr. Raymond conducted research for the Montreal Gazette's "Great Montreal Walks" as well as for the television documentary "Six Decades." Many of his historical documents and photographs were exhibited at the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts, Universite de Montreal, Temple Emanu-El-Beth Sholom, Shaar Hashomayim Congregation and the Jewish Public Library. He has delivered a series of illustrated lectures dealing with Canadian Judaica at the former Saidye Bronfman Centre among other institutions. This collection was accumulated by Allan Raymond over a period of thirty-five years. Most of the collection held at the Jewish Public Library was donated in 1993 and again in 1999. Mr. Raymond continues in his collecting as well as donations of material to the Jewish Public Library Archives to this day.
