History Biographical
Mr. and Mrs. Harry Rother lived in Westmount, later moving to Peel st. Their children included, Abraham (Abe), Mortimer S. (d. Jan. 7, 1993), Helen, and Sam. Harry, Abe, and Sam were all involved in the garment industry, and all held positions at the Wartime Prices and Trades Board during WWII: Harry was appointed Administrator of the Women’s Coats and Suits Division in 1942. At the same time, Sam was also appointed Director of the Women’s, Misses’, and Children’s Wear Administration. It is noted in the Shaar Hashomayim synagogue bulletin of the same year that in 1944 Harry was honored at a testimonial dinner held by representatives of the women’s clothing trade for his work as Administrator. A year later, in 1945 Abe was appointed to the Wartime Prices and Trade Board as Deputy Administrator of Women’s, Misses, and Children’s wear. Lieut. Mortimer S. Rother married Martha Pesner (d. Jan 24, 1993) on Dec. 16th 1945 at the Mount Royal Hotel. Their marriage took place shortly after his return from war. Mortimer was gravely injured (photos show him with a sling) and newspapers referred to his return as triumphant. Their children were Frances and Philip Levin and Jeffrey Rother. Helen Rother, only daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Harry Rother, married Arthur Mortimer Marion on Jan. 19th 1937, at the Shaar Hashomayim.
