Subgroup I: Personal Papers of Abraham and Irma Lopes Cardozo, 1958-1988


Scope and Contents

These series contain the personal papers of Reverend Abraham Lopes Cardozo and his wife Irma Robles Lopes Cardozo. They are made up of speeches, lectures, sermons, and events (i.e., Bat Mitzvahs) in the lives of the two Cardozos; events and publications honoring the Cardozos; correspondence received by the Cardozos as well some written to friends and relatives; honors received by the Cardozos (i.e., on anniversaries, etc.) and newspaper articles detailing the life of the Cardozos. The Cardozos' lives were inextricably bound up in the Congregation Shearith Israel Community of New York City, but also very significant is their reception of the "City of Peace" award, and Reverend Cardozo's knighting by the Netherlands government in 2000. Their personal papers continue to accumulate even as they are being processed.
