THE JOSEPH AND WOLFF FAMILY COLLECTION .
Description Level
Series
Physical Description
1.6 metres of textual records.
Scope and Content
The series contains a copy of Abraham Joseph's diary from the 18th century. The original is housed at the National Archives of Canada. There are typewritten transcripts of the diary contents by Annette Wolff as well as a bound volume which she titled Bachelor's Hall or Maturing with Canada 1834-1876: Diary of Abraham Joseph of Quebec. Also included is a photocopy of the 1882-1883 diaries of Fanny David Joseph, one of Abraham Joseph's daughters, and original extracts from her 1886 diary on life at Kinkardine Place, Quebec City. Of particular note is The Blue Book, a handwritten newsletter written between 1839 and 1842. The Blue Book was usually written by male members of the Joseph family residing in Montreal. It was the precursor of another extremely long-lived Joseph family newsletter, The Moon. The Blue Book is filled with family and community gossip, with the people and places disguised by droll nicknames. Questions of religious observance and decorum surface frequently, reflecting the concerns of a family that moved in non-Jewish circles while striving to maintain their identity. Similar spoofs are in this series as well: an original issue of The Tattler, handwritten in 1839, and a photocopy of the Gazette of Fashion, November 1835. The series contains an original 1828 school certificate stating that Abraham Joseph was at the head of his class; photocopies of Abraham Joseph's Quebec Light Infantry certificate; property sale deeds from 1815 and 1864, including his Natashquaw property; press clips regarding his Quebec City mayoralty nomination in 1859 as well as copies of his obituary from various newspapers.The series also contains Annette Wolff's research papers on various members of the Joseph, Hart, Judah, David and Pinto families, including family trees, as well as her correspondence with the Public Archives of Canada and academic institutions regarding the publication of Bachelor's Hall.

History Biographical
Abraham Joseph was born at Berthier, Quebec, on November 14, 1815, the son of Henry and Rachel (Solomon) Joseph. After the death of his father, he moved to Quebec City, where he resided until his death, on March 20, 1886. In March 1846 he was married to Sophia, daughter of Samuel and Sarah (Hart) David, and had four sons and seven daughters. Abraham Joseph was a successful businessman, and his name was identified with almost every commercial enterprise of his time, in most cases as a director. For a number of years, he was president of the Quebec Board of Trade and later became president of the newly formed Dominion Board of Trade. He was one of the original directors of the Banque Nationale and was a member of the board of that institution which convened for eleven years without change. Mr. Joseph resigned from the directorate of this bank, which office he held until the bank was wound up. He was a member of the Quebec City Council, and at the time was a candidate for the mayoralty, being defeated by a very few votes. For over thirty years he was vice-consul for Belgium. He took a lively interest but no prominent part in politics. During the Papineau Rebellion in 1837-1838, Mr. Joseph served with the Quebec Light Infantry, attaining the rank of major. Intensely proud of his English descent, Mr. Joseph was a life member of the St. George's Society and several times its president. Although in his day there was no organized Jewish community in Quebec, Mr. and Mrs. Joseph maintained a completely Jewish atmosphere in their home and were as highly regarded by their Roman Catholic and Protestant co-residents as by their Jewish neighbours. He was at all times regarded as the leader of his community. He was the founder of the wholesale grocery business, under the name of Joseph & Co. Mr. Joseph was a member of the Stadacona, Garrison, and Tandem Clubs, Quebec. Abraham Joseph's diaries are a valuable early record of Jewish life and material culture in Quebec.
Notes
Abraham Joseph's diary, coupled with Annette Wolff's background papers, provides a wealth of information on the social, economic and religious life in 19th century Quebec. The material is of great value to historians, sociologists, authors, journalists, and teachers and students of Quebec life in the 1800s.
