1Title:  Samuel Goldhamer Papers     
 Creator:  Goldhamer, Samuel 
 Dates:  1930-1969 
 Abstract:  Samuel Goldhamer (1883-1982) was the first director of the Jewish Welfare Federation of Cleveland, Ohio (later the Jewish Community Federation of Cleveland), serving from 1907-1948, and directing the Federation through its reorganization from the Federation of Jewish Charities to the Jewish Welfare Federation (1926). He was instrumental in creating the Bureau of Jewish Education and the Jewish Welfare Fund. The collection consists of a published memoir, "Why doncha write a book", an anecdotal account of Goldhamer's experiences as Federation director, correspondence, speech texts, published and unpublished writings, annual Federation reports, a testimonial scrapbook, and clippings. The speech texts include radio talks by Goldhamer with related correspondence, and speeches Goldhamer wrote for others. Writings, mostly typescripts, also include materials Goldhamer prepared for others, along with notes, memoranda and outlines.
