Physical Description
Env. 1160 photographs. - Env. 0.4 metres of textual records. - 1 artefact.
Scope and Content
The collection consists primarily of 15 albums/scrapbooks, as well as additional photographs, correspondence, and documents. The collection documents Allan, Lucy, and Edward's professional and philanthropic endeavors, as well as the family life of Allan and Lucy Bronfman and their three children, including childhood photos and family vacations. There are 7 large albums measuring at least 16" in length; included in this group are two which document Allan's birthday dinners in 1945, one in Montreal and the other in New York and relating to the Seagram business there, and one photo album from Allan's birthday party in New York in 1955. There is an album of correspondence relating to Allan's Man of the Year Israel Bonds event in 1964 and an album documenting the Jewish National Fund of Toronto Negev Dinner Tribute to Edward in 1997. A highlight of the album collection is a personal compendium of Edward's which has many photos and documents focused on the family life of Allan, Lucy, and their children Mona, Edward, and Peter. This volume includes some materials relating to Lucy's sister Lillian Bilsky Freiman, such as a news clipping from the summer of 1937 documenting a garden party for the Women's Auxiliary of the Jewish General Hospital given by Lucy and Lillian at Lucy's family home in Montreal. It also displays documents relating to Lucy's charitable work, her service as Chairman of the Hospitality Committee for the Jewish General Hospital Ball in 1938 and her service as Honorary Chairman of a concert given for the Canadian Aid to Russia Fund in 1943. There are 6 medium sized albums; included among these is a Bar Mitzvah album documenting Edward's Bar Mitzvah at Shaar Hashomayim Synagogue in Montreal in late 1940, which reflects the social climate of the war years in Canada. Also included in this group are two albums entitled "Lucy and Allan", documenting family travels as well as photos of Allan with famous figures such as Moishe Dayan, Golda Meir, and David Ben-Gurion. These 2 volumes include photos taken at City Hall with the Mayor of Montreal, and one of Allan and Lucy at Expo '67. There are 2 small albums; both are family focused photo albums, one dating from 1940s-1970s and consisting of family photos, vacation pictures, images of summer camp, and sports photographs. The other album consists mostly of childhood photos of Mona and Edward in the 1930s taken in Old Orchard as well as in Westmount, Quebec. The other components of the collection consist of a copy of Mary Seeman's chapter on Edward in the Canadian Psychiatric Research Foundation's 25th Anniversary Book, 23 loose photos, 1 Metal and wood plaque from the Sun Youth Organization to the Edward M. Bronfman Foundation, and 11 cm. of loose documents, many of them full newspapers containing obituaries for Edward Bronfman. One typed document consists of the eulogies delivered at Edward's funeral.

History Biographical
Allan Bronfman (1895-1980) was born in Brandon, Manitoba. He was a barrister, industrialist, philanthropist and a Zionist. He studied law at the University of Manitoba, and obtained his law degree at the age of 22. At the age of 24, he became the chairman of a Jewish orphanage in Winnipeg. In 1924, he left Winnipeg for Montreal, and joined the family's liquor business, Seagram's Ltd., where he served as vice-president. He was a founder and the driving force behind the creation of Montreal's Jewish General Hospital, where he served as its first president, a post which lasted 25 years, as well as the founder of the Canadian Friends of Hebrew University in Israel. His wife Lucy Bronfman (1897-1983) was born Lucy Bilsky to parents Pauline and Moses Bilsky of Ottawa. One of her sisters was Lillian Bilsky Freiman of Ottawa, former president of the Hadassah Organization of Canada, social organizer, philanthropist, and community leader. Lucy was also active in charitable Jewish and Canadian organizations. These activities included her service as Chairman of the Hospitality Committee for the Jewish General Hospital Ball in 1938. She also served as Honorary Chairman of a concert given for the Canadian Aid to Russia Fund in 1943. Lucy and Allan had three children, Mona, Edward, and Peter. Mona (1924-1950) was active in charitable and artistic endeavors. In 1935, she served as president of the Montreal children's committee of the King George V Jubilee Forest Drive, while her aunt Lillian Bilsky Freiman served as national chairman of the organization and helped to inspire and organize the children's committee. Edward (1927-2005), and Peter (1929-1996) started the holding company and investment vehicle Edper Investments Ltd. in 1959. Edward was committed to the philanthropic tradition handed down from his parents; he was very active in charitable organizations such as the Canadian Council for Christians and Jews, the Canadian Council for Aboriginal Business, the Canadian Foundation for AIDS Research, and the Canadian Psychiatric Research Foundation. In 1989 Edward formed the Edward Bronfman Family Foundation, a member of Philanthropic Foundations of Canada. As documented in Mary Seeman's chapter on Edward in the CPRF 25th Anniversary Book, the Edward Bronfman Family Foundation created a $1.5 million endowment fund in 2001, in partnership with the Canadian Psychiatric Research Foundation, the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health Foundation, and the Canadian Institutes of Health Research to support a Postdoctoral Fellowship Award in the area of mood disorders. Named the Mona Bronfman Sheckman Post-Doctoral Fellowship Award, it commemorates the life of Edward's sister Mona, who suffered from severe post-partum depression and committed suicide in 1950 at age 26.
