Scope and Content Note

This collection documents the research of Samuel Oppenheim, who researched the Jewish history in the Americas, 17th–19th centuries; he focused particularly on those who lived in what would become New York City. The collection contains transcripts, photocopies, court records, correspondence, essays, and notebooks that document Oppenheim's occumlated knowledge.

Series I of this collection documents information pertaining to nearly 1100 Jewish colonists of the Dutch and English colonies of modern-day New York and the surrounding area. The files in this series include: Oppenheim's transcriptions of original documents from various collections, from newspaper accounts and court records to registries and ledgers. Series II of this collection is similar to Series I.

Series III consists of Oppenheim’s transcripts of the early records of Congregation Shearith Israel. Series IV contains his typewritten copies of the correspondence of noted Jewish colonist and merchant, Aaron Lopez; while Series V consists of typewritten copies of newspaper advertisements relating to companies or groups owned or catering to the Jewish community in the period of 1735-1799.

The portion of the collection dealing with the Dutch West India Company, Series VI, is divided into four subseries relating to the Jewish communities of Amsterdam, and the colonies of the Dutch West India Company. This series contains photocopies that include a transcription of the document in its original language and its translation into English. The first subseries documents some of the administrative activities of the Company. The second subseries documents the plight of Jews living in the former Dutch colonies of Brazil after the Portuguese reconquest. The third subseries contains material related to documenting the activities of the Dutch West India Company in New Netherlands, the area under Dutch control on the east coast of North America. The fourth subseries describes the relocation and settlement by Jews from Amsterdam and other Dutch colonies to Suriname.

Series VII provides a glimpse into the Mayor's Court of the City of New York from the mid-seventeenth century to the mid-eighteenth century, with original court documents. Such items include: a call for an election of a new constable to replace the deceased Samuel Levy, and an answer by one Saul Dovalle to a complaint brought by Abraham De Lucena to the Mayor’s Court of New York for failure to pay a debt.

The above-mentioned series contains information Oppenheim uncovered during the process of his research. The remaining Series in this collection represent his thoughts and writings about his discoveries.

Biographical Note

Samuel Oppenheim, American lawyer and historian, was born in New York City on December 2, 1859 to Isaac and Melia Oppenheim. Educated at the College of the City of New York and Columbia Law School, he was admitted to the New York Bar in 1885. As a lawyer, he worked with noted attorneys Simon Sterne and Oscar S. Straus. Oppenheim served as secretary of the Executive Committee of the Board of Directors from 1889-1891; and assistant general counsel from 1896-1901 for the Missouri, Kansas and Texas Railway Company. He also served as secretary of the Central Park Involvement Company from 1887-1901, and as the recording secretary of the American Jewish Historical Society from 1914 to 1927. Other affiliations included the New York State Historical Association, Association of the Bar of the City of New York, the London Shorthand Society, and the Judaeans, a Jewish community organization in New York.

In addition to his legal work, he is perhaps best known for his efforts to better understand the history of Jews in the Americas, and in particular, those living in the colonial period. His research was not limited to those in the British colonies but also encompassed those living in the Dutch colonies in what is modern-day Brazil, New York, and Suriname. Much of Oppenheim's writings can be found in the Publications of the American Jewish Historical Society.

He passed away on August 11, 1928, being survived by his siblings and their children.

Abstract

This collection documents the research of Jewish historian Samuel Oppenheim (1857-1928) concerning the lives of colonial Jews in the Americas, and the early history of the United States. Included in the collection are his notes, transcripts of original works, photocopies of the records of the Dutch West India Company, correspondence relating to his research, his writings, and original documents from the Mayor’s Court of the City of New York that date from 1653-1760.

Arrangement

The Samuel Oppenheim Papers have been processed prior to the creation of this finding aid. An earlier processing produced a finding aid that has been lost and much of the information contained in this finding aid came from that processing. In 2006, Marvin Rusinek created a container list using MS WORD along with rudimentary descriptive components. This finding aid is the result of further processing which included the removal of empty folders, conversion of the MS WORD document into an XML document, the completion of descriptive elements and various refinements. Major revisions include the changing the title of Series VI, from Brazil-Suriname to the Dutch West India Company and dividing the series into subseries for better access and clarity of content. The creation of Series VII: Early Court Records of New York City came from the process of this reorganiztion. This material had previously been included in the series mentioned above but the chronological coverage of the documents went beyond the time period of the Dutch West India Company and therefore a new series was created to show their uniqueness. The arrangement of the collection is given below; however, there are peculiarities pertaining to the Series and Subseries and as a result should be consulted further by the researcher in regards to the overall arrangement of the collection.

Acquisition Information

These papers were donated to the American Jewish Historical Society by the family of Samuel Oppenheim.
