History Biographical
Born in Lancaster, Ontario in 1871, S.W. Jacobs' family was one of the earliest to come to Canada from Eastern Europe, arriving in the mid-1800s. Educated at McGill and Laval Universities, he became a lawyer and an expert on Canada's legal code and its railway law. From 1917 until his death he was also Liberal member of Parliament for Cartier. He was President of the Baron de Hirsch Institute from 1912-1914, of the Canadian Jewish Congress from 1934-1938, and life governor of the Montreal General Hospital, Notre Dame Hospital, Mount Sinai Sanatorium, the Young Men's Hebrew Association and the Hebrew Free Loan Association. He was also involved with the Jewish Immigrant Aid Services and the Montreal Hebrew Orphans' Home, and was the Canadian director of the Jewish Colonization Association. Jacobs was renowned for defending Jewish interests, combating anti-Semitism, and promoting increased Jewish immigration to Canada. He was also very active in the Quebec school question. As a lawyer he was famous for such incidents as having murderer Harry K. Thaw extradited to the United States, as well as for winning the Plamondon libel case in 1913. As an MP, Jacobs was involved in removing certain discriminatory acts that were anti-Jewish and is known for his amendment respecting the status of Jews in Quebec's constitutional law. S.W. Jacobs, called "the wit of Parliament," established the Jewish Times in 1897 with his friend Lyon Cohen - the first Canadian Jewish periodical. He died in 1938.

History Biographical
Samuel (Sam) Caplan (b. 1898 - d. 1983 in Ottawa) was the son of Caspar Caplan and Dora Roston. He had two brothers, Gordon Caplan and David Caplan, and three sisters, Miriam (M. Wershof), Lessie (E. Roston) and Lillian (L. Wolfe). Sam began working within the family's retail business, C. Caplan Limited (Caplan's), as a teenager and married Marcia Clarice Singer of Montreal in August 1936. Caplan’s was first opened in 1897 by Casper Caplan and moved to Rideau Street in 1916. By the time Caplan’s expanded to a department store on Rideau Street, Sam was the Secretary-Treasurer. Caplan’s purchased Shaffer’s Limited in 1967, and closed two decades later on July 28, 1984. as the store was facing declining sales and increased competition from the Rideau Centre Shopping mall. Sam was affiliated with the Ottawa Hebrew Benevolent Society all his adult life. He was a charter member of B’nai B’rith Ottawa Lodge and a life long member of Adath Jeshurun Congregation. He served as Adath Jesherun's president between 1951 and 1956 and led negotiation talks which facilitated the merger with Agudath Achim and the creation of Congregation Beth Shalom. Sam died in 1983, just one year before Caplan’s closed. Marcia Caplan was a noted bridge player, being the second Jewish female Life Master in Ottawa. Between 1935 and 1952, Marcia Caplan created a series of portraits of leading world personages using a typewriter. Marcia died in Ottawa in 2003.
