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.
