Following the depression of 1893, Lehman retired, and in 1904, Henry Richman turned over the business to his sons; Nathan, Charles, and Henry, Jr., and the business became the Richman Brothers Company.

Moving away from reliance on outside piecework, the Cleveland plant at 1600 E. 55 St. was built in 1916. The company incorporated in 1919. Throughout the 1920s-1930s, Richman Brothers continued to open new retail stores. After the deaths of the three Richman Brothers, the company was headed by Frank C. Lewman, and later by George H. Richman, until 1970, when Donald J. Gerstenberger became president and CEO. Expansion continued throughout the 1940s-1950s, despite problems with the Amalgamated Clothing Workers of America which attempted to unionize Richman Brothers. It remained a non-union shop throughout its existence. In 1969, Richman Brothers became a subsidiary of F.W. Woolworth Company. In 1986, corporate headquarters was moved to Massachusetts, and in 1990, its Cleveland manufacturing plant was closed. By December 1992, Richman Brothers Company had been completely liquidated.

18Title:  Cleveland Hebrew Schools Photographs     
 Creator:  Cleveland Hebrew Schools 
 Dates:  1912-1976 
 Abstract:  The Cleveland Hebrew Schools evolved from the Montefiore Free Hebrew School (later called the Talmud Torah) established in Cleveland, Ohio, ca. 1885. In 1905, another communal Hebrew school was founded by Joshua Flock and Aaron Garber. In 1907, the two schools combined, the name remaining the Talmud Torah. In 1913, the Talmud Torah received an Ohio charter and changed its name to the Cleveland Hebrew School and Institute, enrolling students in grades one through eight. Abraham Hayyim Friedland, an internationally known educator, headed the school from 1921-1939. In 1926, a high school was added, and a Parent Council was organized in 1930. Bernard Levitin served as superintendent from 1944-1970, a period of movement of Cleveland's Jewish population to the suburbs. A reorganization of the Cleveland Hebrew Schools took place during this period, with some Cleveland branches closing and new suburban schools opening. As the number of Jewish day schools and congregational classes grew, the Cleveland Hebrew Schools enrollment dropped and branches were further consolidated. In 1955, the Parent Council organized Camp Oneg, a Hebrew summer day camp, and Ganon Gil Nursery, a Hebrew school for preschool children. In 1967 Cleveland Hebrew High School merged into Akiva High School. The collection consists of individual portraits of some of the organization's leaders, such as A. H. Friedland, Bernard Levitin, and Rabbi Samuel Margolies.

 Abstract:  Jacob Mintz (1867-1947) was a prominent private detective in Cleveland, Ohio, for over fifty years.

Mintz was a picturesque, high-profile professional during his successful career. A number of his jobs involved major events of the era. He served as bodyguard to Carrie Nation, the anti-drinking crusader, when she spoke in Cleveland in 1901. That same year, Mintz escorted the immediate family of Leon Czolgosz, the assassin of President William McKinley, to Buffalo, New York, to visit him in the days immediately after the assassination. For a number of years, Mintz maintained a close business and political partnership with Charles P. Salen, a Cuyahoga County Democratic party stalwart. Together they operated Forest City Park, an amusement park, as well as refreshment stands at Public Square, Luna Park, and Gordon Gardens. Mintz served many years as treasurer of the Cuyahoga County Democratic Party Central committee and secretary of the Cuyahoga County Police Chiefs and Marshals Association.
