History Biographical
S.L.(Shmuel Leib) Nathanson, the maternal great grandfather of donor Merle Kastner, was born in 1863 in Piatra Neamt, in the Moldavia province of Romania. He came to Canada with his wife Basie and five children in June, 1901, stopping briefly in Sydney, Nova Scotia, where S.L. left his family and travelled to Montreal, to set up his grocery business. With the help of Percy Dow of Dow Breweries and Lionel Eker of Ekers Brewery, he obtained a liquor licence for the "American Grain Distillers", later changed to "Sampson Distillers, Inc.", which provided him with the most lucrative part of his business. After the rest of his family joined him in Montreal, in 1901 he quickly established himself as an important and contributing member of the Montreal Jewish community. The grocery business S.L. Nathanson & Son, located on St. Cuthbert Street at St. Lawrence Boulevard, was registered in Montreal in 1908. Subsequently the "Distillers Distributing Co." was registered on Nov. 6, 1914, signed by SL Nathanson, and his sons Maurice and Henry Nathanson. S.L's younger son Sydney officially joined S.L. Nathanson and Sons in 1919, shortly before the partnership was dissolved in 1920. Soon after, Sydney Nathanson went on to work for the Bronfmans at Seagram's in Windsor, Ontario. Henry Nathanson and his wife Minnie, the maternal grandparents of the donor, were active members in the Montreal Jewish community and were especially supportive of Zionist causes - Hadassah, Hebrew Free Loan, among others.
