1Title:  Harry Stone Papers     
 Creator:  Stone, Harry 
 Dates:  1943-2006 
 Abstract:  Harry Stone (1917-2007) was a business leader in Cleveland, Ohio, active in politics and philanthropy. He was the son of Jacob Sapirstein, the founder of American Greetings Corp., a manufacturer of greeting cards. Stone was a member of the Glenville High School Class of 1935. In addition to the positions he held at American Greetings, Stone also owned radio stations WIXY and WDOK and was engaged in real estate and international trade and finance. Among his many civic activities, Stone was a trustee of Brandeis University, the Jewish Community Federation, and the Cleveland Sight Center. Stone married Beatrice Farkas in 1936. The couple had three children, Phillip J, Allan D., and Laurie. After the death of Beatrice, Harry married Lucile Tabak Rose in 1960. Her children from a previous marriage were James M. Rose and Douglas B. Rose. In the 1960s Stone was campaign chairman for United States Representative Charles Vanik. His relationship with Vanik proved beneficial to the Jewish community in 1973, when Vanik asked Stone and his brother Irving for help in scheduling a vote on the Jackson-Vanik Amendment, which required the USSR to allow Jewish emigration to the United States in order to qualify for most favored nation status. The Stone brothers asked Representative Wilbur Mills of Arkansas to schedule the vote; American Greetings was at the time the largest employer in Mills' Arkansas district. Stone also served as a consultant to the United States Departments of Commerce and State. the collection consists of annual reports, bulletins, certificates, correspondence, greeting cards, newspaper clippings, a petition, proclamations, a program, a speech text, a statement, and a yizkor (memorial) book.

2Title:  Abe M. Luntz Papers, Series II     
 Creator:  Luntz, Abe M. 
 Dates:  1916-1987 
 Abstract:  Abe M. Luntz (1893-1981) was born in Akron, Ohio, on March 6, 1893 of Polish Jewish immigrant parents, Samuel and Rebecca Wolf Luntz. He and his family moved to Canton, Ohio, when he was around 6 years old. He attended public schools in Canton, was very active in sports, and graduated from Canton's Central High School in 1913. After graduation, he went to work for his father's company, the Canton Iron and Metal Company. With his brother Darwin, he founded the Luntz Iron and Steel Company in 1916 due to the growing need for scrap with the onset of World War I. He held several positions in the Luntz Iron and Steel Company before becoming president in 1951. The company became one of the United States' premiere scrap and steel brokerage firms and expanded into Michigan, Pennsylvania, Indiana, and Kentucky. Abe Luntz married Fanny Teplansky on October 10, 1916. They had five children, Robert, Richard, William, Theodore, and Joan. The family moved to Cleveland in 1939 for business purposes as well as for more varied religious, musical, and educational opportunities. All of his sons joined in the family business. Luntz was also known for his benevolence to a wide variety of civic, cultural, medical, and religious groups and causes both in Canton and Cleveland. He was president of The Temple in University Circle from 1950-1960. He was active with the YMCA, the Boy Scouts, the Montefiore Home, the Singing Angels, and the Jewish Welfare Fund, among others. He was also a board member of many organizations including Mount Sinai Hospital, the Community Chest, United Appeal, Jewish Community Federation, and the Art Museum. He was especially involved with the National Conference of Christians and Jews (NCCJ), a human rights organization promoting peace, tolerance, and social justice (now known as the National Conference for Community and Justice). He held both local and national offices and won its highest award, the National Human Relations Award, in 1957. He died on February 24, 1981. The collection consists of brochures, certificates, correspondence, a deed, an invitation, legislation, lists, magazine articles, maps, a memoir, newsletters, newspaper articles, notes, obituaries, press releases, programs, reports, speech texts, and a will.
