Identifier: P-225

Scope and Content Note

The collection consists primarily of letters written by Zangwill to Philip Cowen (1897-1903) regarding the American Hebrew and social matters. Also includes letters to Philip Henry on the Jewish Territorial Organization (1905 and 1908), and a letter to Max J. Kohler regarding an invitation to a meeting in his honor given by the Judaeans (1923).

Also included are clippings from American periodicals, and the manuscript and typed copy of a speech given by Zangwill at a meeting given in his honor by the Judaeans (1898); the text differs somewhat from that published in The Judaeans, vol. 1 (1897-1898), pp. 115-138.

Of special interest in the correspondence to Cowen are Zangwill's references to Mary Antin, and to the stage production of "Children of the Ghetto.".

Included in the collection is a scrapbook of clippings pertaining to the Zangwill centennial in 1964, and to reviews of Israel Zangwill : a study, by Maurice Wohlgelernter.
