History Biographical
Solomon Abel came to Canada from Russia via the United States, entering Canada in 1907. His six children (as of 1914) included daughter Annie, whose school documents are in this collection. Another daughter was the mother of Jack Silverstone, the donor. Mr Silverstone was the Executive Vice-President of Canadian Jewish Congress. These early immigration and school documents, all originals, are important for their display potential - one includes a photo and describes the subject's profession and Hebrew marriage.
Custodial History
The collection was donated by Mr. Jack Silverstone.
