Abstract: Samuel Goldhamer was the first director of the Jewish Welfare Federation in Cleveland, Ohio, the organization later known as the Jewish Community Federation of Cleveland. He directed the Federation of Jewish Charities beginning in 1907, overseeing its 1926 transformation from a primarily charitable organization into a social, cultural, spiritual, and philanthropic agency. Goldhamer's son, Walter, was an engineer and business executive who served as chairman of the Cleveland-based Superior Die Casting. He was known for his prizewinning designs, including an optical mount die used in some Kodak Super 8 projectors in the 1960's. The collection consists of certificates, correspondence, a genealogical chart, and newspaper clippings.
