Hebrew Free Loan Society of New York City (HFLS) Records

Identifier: I-614

The Hebrew Free Loan Society of New York City (HLFS), also known as the Hebrew Gemilath Chassodim Association, was established in New York City in 1892 with the goal of providing interest-free loans to those in financial need who were not looking for alms and were able to secure financial endorsers who could support the loan recipient in case of hardship or default. HFLS institutional records range from 1892 to 2010, with the majority of non-loan records (annual reports, board minutes, correspondence, financial records, bills and receipts, printed matter, photographs, audio-visual records and unaccessed floppy discs) ranging from 1904-1998, though these records are incomplete. The majority of HFLS records relate to promissory notes from 1892-1998. Promissory notes are currently restricted.

Louis Marshall Papers

Identifier: P-24

Louis Marshall, a leader in the American Jewish community, was born in Syracuse, New York. He moved to New York City and graduated from Columbia Law School in 1877. In 1894 he joined the law firm of Guggenheimer and Untermyer, later becoming a partner. Marshall practiced Reform Judaism. He served as president and strategist of the American Jewish Committee; Chairman of the Commission of Immigration in New York State; and led the opposition concerning the establishment of literacy tests for new immigrants. Marshall was a defender of Leo Frank, a negotiator in the Peace Conference of 1919, and attempted to block Henry Ford's publication, the Dearborn Independent, due to anti-Semitic rhetoric. Though Marshall was a somewhat controversial figure in the American Jewish community, he worked diligently on issues regarding Jewish immigration and rights.

The collection contains correspondence, memoranda, pamphlets, minutes, reports, and copies of Congressional bills.

Dates: undated, 1905-1933
