Biography/History

The following is a brief sketch of the life of Abraham Neuman, and is intended to highlight the salient facts in his professional and public career. The researcher may wish to consult the Selected Bibliography for a listing of some of the published biographical data.

Dr. Abraham Neuman was born in Brezau, Austria, in September 1890, to Max and Rachel Neuman and was a descendant of an old Rabbinic family. He immigrated to the United States in 1898, at the age of eight. He studied at the Rabbi Isaac Elhanan Yeshiva, Columbia University and the Jewish Theological Seminary (JTS). Recognized by the President of JTS, Solomon Schechter, he was appointed as an instructor at the Teachers Institute of the Jewish Theological Seminary. He was ordained as a rabbi and received a B.S. from Columbia University in 1912.

In 1913 he joined the faculty of Dropsie College in Philadelphia, where he taught history until 1940. He was appointed associate professor in 1923 and full professor in 1934. Neuman held rabbinical posts at the B'nai Jeshurun congregation from 1919-1927, and the Sephardi congregation Mikveh Israel, the second oldest pulpit in America, from 1927-1940.

Dropsie College President

After Cyrus Adler's death in 1940, Neuman became president of the Dropsie College, which was a post-graduate, non-sectarian and non-professional institution leading to the degree of Doctor of Philosophy. He held this post until his retirement in 1966.

Under Neuman's inspiration as second president of Dropsie College, the college expanded its curriculum, appointing new professors and adding new departments. In 1941, departments of Jewish Philosophy and Hebrew Literature were opened. In 1942, the department of History and Semitic Civilization was opened, followed by the department of Assyriology and Egyptology (1944) and Comparative Religion (1945). Neuman recognized the need for a Jewish graduate school of education on American soil. He perceived the deep need for a school of higher education, irrespective of its adherence to either orthodox, conservative or reform Judaism. The school was organized under the direction of Dr. Leo L. Honor in 1946.

The Institute for Israel and the Middle East was established in 1948 and was the first complete unit of Middle East studies at any American university, embracing history, anthropology, economics, religious, social and political institutions in the countries of the Middle East, with parallel courses relating to Israel. The Institute was well-known for training consular and diplomatic personnel. Under Neuman's administration, the enrollment of Jews, Christians and Moslems greatly increased.

From 1940, Dr. Neuman joined forces with Solomon Zeitlin to continue publishing the Jewish Quarterly Review, which had been published for 30 years under the aegis of Dropsie College and, before that, for 20 years in London under the editorship of Claude J. Montefiore and Israel Abrahams. In 1940 this journal almost ceased to exist because of a drop in the number of subscribers coming mainly from Jewish communities in Europe. The Dropsie College correspondence reflects relentless efforts to reach new subscribers.

Dr. Neuman launched the Dropsie College edition of the Apocrypha and Pseudepigrapha, of which seven books in six volumes were published.

Professional and Public Career

Neuman produced a number of works of high scholarly merit, chief among them being The Jews in Spain (two volumes, 1942). The work was based primarily on the responsa of Solomon Ibn Adret (RashBa), and it attempted to reconstruct the social life of the Jews in Spain. It served as a model of research in this type of Jewish source material. Also of importance was  Cyrus Adler, a biography (1942) evaluating the life of an exemplary public servant during the period when American Jewry was assuming worldwide responsibilities. Neuman contributed to many scholarly periodicals and some of his important monographs on historical and religious themes were published in 1952 by the Board of Governors of the Dropsie College in "Landmarks and Goals."

Neuman served as chairman of the College Committee of Gratz College and Vice President of the Board of Overseers. He played a leading part in the reorganization of this institution in 1928.

Neuman was a member of the Publication Committee of the Jewish Publication Society of America and a recording secretary of the American Jewish Historical Society. He was associated with the Universal Jewish Encyclopedia as a collaborating editor in the Department of History.

Under Neuman's leadership, the United Synagogue of America erected the Palestine Synagogue Center in Jerusalem. In the Presidential election of 1940, he served as a Democratic Presidential Elector for the State of Pennsylvania.

Neuman was active in the development of the Zionist movement in the United States. He was recognized as a leader in cultural activities throughout the country. Neuman was renowned as an orator, and was much sought after as a public speaker.

Abraham Neuman died on November 20, 1970.

Biography/History

Joseph Reider was born in the province of Volhynia, Russia, in 1886. In his correspondence with Dropsie College president Abraham Neuman, Dr. Reider expressed some uncertainty about his exact date of birth, and referred to his Polish passport for confirmation of the year.

To quote from the Universal Jewish Encyclopedia (1943), Reider "studied at the University of Gottingen, Germany before coming to the United States in 1904. Here he received his A. B. degree from the College of the City of New York in 1910, and his Ph.D. degree from Dropsie College in 1913. Immediately after being awarded his degree by Dropsie College, Reider was made professor of Biblical philology at the college and was also appointed librarian." He retained both these posts until his retirement in 1959.

He lectured on a variety of topics at Dropsie College. For example, in the 1945-1946 academic year he offered courses in Hebrew Grammar, the Book of Job, and the Aramaic papyri of Assuan and Elephantine. This collection includes some of his notes for each of these courses and others, including Hebrew Bibliography.

Dr. Reider contributed numerous reviews and articles to both Hebrew- and English-language periodicals and encyclopedias, and also served on the publication committee of the Jewish Publication Society (JPS). His monographs include his Ph.D. thesis, Prolegomena to a Greek-Hebrew and Hebrew-Greek Index to Aquila, published by Dropsie College in 1916, and a translation with commentary of  The Book of Wisdom, published in 1957 by Harper & Brothers for Dropsie College, as part of its Apocrypha and Pseudepigrapha Series. According to one biographical statement, he also published a translation and commentary on the Sibylline Oracles.

He extensively edited Deuteronomy with Commentary, originally submitted to the Jewish Publication Society by Dr. H. Hirschfeld, published by the JPS in 1937 under Dr. Reider's name. He also wrote a book on the life and influence of Samuel David Luzzatto. He proposed this work to the JPS in 1942 and submitted the manuscript for review in 1945, but it was never published.

He was a member of the American Oriental Society, the American Society of Biblical Literature, and the American Library Association. He also served on the Publication Committee of the Jewish Publication Society of America.

Dr. Reider married Anna Farstej. They had two children, Raphael Benjamin and Emanuel T. Reider. At the time of his death on November 29, 1960, Dr. Reider was also survived by grandchildren.

Biography/History

Max Leopold Margolis was born Mordechai Yom Tov Margolis in the village of Merecz in the Russian province of Vilna (now Lithuania) on October 15, 1866. Mordechai Yom Tov was named after the famous rabbi Yom Tov Lippman Heller, from whom he descended on his father Isaac Margolis' side. His mother's name was Hinde Bernstein. He had one brother named Elias, and four sisters: Anna, Lena, Bertha and Ida. Anna eventually married a man named Ginsberg. After her death, Ginsberg re-married Anna's sister Lena. Bertha married into the Barnett family; Ida Margolis never married.

Margolis received his early Jewish education from his father who was a rabbi. Margolis began studying secular subjects such as mathematics with his self-taught father and also received additional training in Russian and other subjects from a local priest in Merecz. Margolis' thirst for knowledge of all kinds was not easily exhausted. According to information told to Alexander Marx by Margolis' brother Elias, Margolis tried unsuccessfully to run away from his small village in search of wider horizons. Realizing the intellectual limitations the confines of Merecz imposed on his son, Margolis' father sent him to live at the home of his maternal grandfather David Bernstein in Berlin sometime after his thirteenth birthday. In Berlin, Margolis studied at the Leibniz Gymnasium, where he received a thorough grounding in Greek and Latin. Margolis was consistently the top student in Greek and graduated with distinction in 1885. While in Berlin, Margolis' family emigrated to America. Margolis did not re-join them, however, until 1889, two years after the death of Margolis' father, who had found work as the rabbi of the Kalvarier Schul in New York.

Margolis began his graduate studies at Columbia College in New York in 1889, received his M.A degree in 1890, and only one year later in 1891 successfully completed his Ph.D., the first to be awarded in the Oriental Department. Writing in Latin, which apparently was stronger than his English at the time, Margolis submitted a text-critical study of Rashi's commentary on tractate Eruvin of the Talmud, under the supervision of Richard Gottheil.

Following his graduation, Margolis remained at Columbia for one year as a University Fellow in Semitic Languages. Shortly thereafter, Margolis lectured at the Glenmore School for Culture and Sciences, in Keene, New Hampshire and also lectured at the summer school run by Felix Adler, the founder of the Ethical Culture Society, at Plymouth, Massachusetts. From 1893 until 1898, Margolis taught Hebrew and Semitic languages at the Hebrew Union College, in Cincinnati, Ohio. Margolis was hired by Isaac Mayer Wise, the founder and president of the college (the center of reform Judaism in America at that time), and enjoyed a warm relationship with him. Perhaps attracted by the possibilities of a broader university environment, Margolis departed HUC in 1899 for the University of California in Berkeley where he assumed the position of assistant professor of Semitics. One year later, Margolis was awarded an associate professorship.

It was during his stay in California, that Margolis met his future wife, Evelyn Kate Aronson, of San Francisco. They were married on June 20, 1906. Evelyn Aronson was a gifted, cultured woman who came from a prominent family. Among her descendants on her mother's side was Barry Goldwater. They had three children, Catherine, and the twins, Philip, and Max, Jr. Max, Jr. died of a stomach ailment during the family's visit to Palestine in 1924 where Margolis had come as the Annual Professor at the American School of Oriental Research in Jerusalem. Margolis' grief was profound; after returning to the United States he was said to have visited his son's grave every Shabbat for the rest of life, even in intemperate weather.

Margolis had left Berkeley shortly before his marriage to return to Cincinnati where he had been recruited by HUC's new president, Kaufmann Kohler. From September 1905 to March 1907, Margolis held the position of Professor of Hebrew Exegesis at the Hebrew Union College. Unfortunately, the return to Cincinnati did not prove felicitous. Margolis left HUC within two years due to personality conflicts with the new president. They also differed substantively on a number of important issues such as the nature of the curriculum, Margolis' desire for an unfettered teaching hand, and his political outlook. After leaving HUC, Margolis spent one year abroad in Europe from 1907 into 1908, visiting Berlin, Belgium and Holland and several of Europe's famous libraries. During his stay, Margolis attended a Zionist Congress at The Hague. Margolis was an ardent supporter of the Zionist cause, and his outspoken stance appears to have been among the factors that contributed to his turbulent departure from HUC.

Margolis returned to the United States in 1908 to accept the position of secretary of the editorial board for the Jewish Publication Society's proposed new translation of the Hebrew Bible into English. Margolis eventually became editor-in-chief of this complex undertaking, which was finally published in 1917. On March 28, 1909, Margolis was unanimously elected by the Board of Governors of the newly created Dropsie College in Philadelphia to the position of Professor of Biblical Philology. Margolis remained on the faculty of Dropsie College until his death in 1932.

Margolis' years at Dropsie were marked by intense activity. In addition to his regular teaching load, his various administrative responsibilities as Secretary of the Faculty, his outside endeavors such as the Bible translation, and his numerous popularly and scholarly publications, Margolis devoted himself to the task of reconstructing an authentic textual witness to the Greek translation of the Book of Joshua. The work represented Margolis' crowning scholarly achievement and a major contribution to the emerging field of textual criticism of the Septuagint and its relation to the original Hebrew text.

Margolis actively participated in several other spheres of public life. He played a prominent role in the developing field of Semitic studies in America. From 1914 to 1921, Margolis served as the editor of the Journal of Biblical Literature and was elected president of the Society of Biblical Literature for the year 1923. Margolis also was one of the editors of the  Journal of the American Oriental Society from 1922 until 1932. Margolis was one of the pioneering figures in the history of critical Jewish Biblical Studies in North America; at the time of his death, he was memorialized as "the foremost authority on the Hebrew biblical literature in America" and called "the dean of Hebrew scholars."

Margolis also sought to promote Jewish education among all segments of the Jewish population. He wrote dozens of popular articles discussing various issues of his day as well as several book-length studies designed for the general public. He collaborated with his friend Alexander Marx to write a concise history of the Jewish people, published by the Jewish Publication Society and authored several works about the Hebrew Bible also intended for a popular audience.

Margolis was a curious figure in the history of religious reform in America. He advocated the introduction of dogmatic principles in to Jewish life in America as a way of invigorating Jewish religious existence not defined by allegiance to rabbinic tradition. He was said to have lived in a kosher home and attended synagogue every Shabbat, though he was also known to have taken the train to get there. Margolis is not easily classified among the miscellany of expressions of Jewish identity in America in the beginning of the twentieth century. If Margolis felt real affiliation with the doctrines and tendencies of any one movement, nonetheless, it was probably with the possibilities he imagined in political Zionism. Margolis was committed first to the Jewish people, their history and life, guided by the principles of reason. He was outspoken and circumspect, an enlightened, cautious man who held strong views after much reflection.

Margolis died of a cerebral hemorrhage in Philadelphia at 3:00 p.m., Saturday April 2, 1932 at the age of 65. Services were held in the Dropsie College building. A future president of Dropsie College, Rabbi Abraham Neuman of the Mikveh Israel congregation, presided. He was buried in the Mt. Sinai cemetery.

Biographical/Historical Note

A comprehensive, revised and annotated bibliography of Margolis' writings can be found in Leonard Greenspoon's Max Margolis: A Scholar's Scholar (Atlanta: Scholar's Press, 1987), pp. 135-178.

The vast majority of the biographical information about Margolis used in the writing of this finding aid is based on Greenspoon's work. Greenspoon closely examined parts of this collection (and related material in the Adler collection) before it was processed.

Several standard reference sources were consulted (in addition to Greenspoon's work, Margolis' own writings, and of course the materials forming the current collection): the Encyclopedia Judaica;  Universal Jewish Encyclopedia;  Dictionary of American Biography, and the additional sources cited there.

Scope and Contents

The collection ranges in date from about 1910 (almost no earlier material was found in the collection) to 1966, with the bulk of the material relating to the 1940s and 1950s. The material is divided into two distinct groups:

Professional work - consisting of notes, diaries, drafts, manuscripts, articles and correspondence on Neuman's work as a scholar in Jewish History.

Dropsie College material - pertaining to the period of Neuman's presidency of Dropsie College.

While the Dropsie College material was filed alphabetically during Neuman's tenure as president of Dropsie College, the professional material was only generally arranged during the years by Neuman himself. Therefore, the processor arranged this material topically. As personal material was scattered in the various files, an effort was made to gather the material into one box of personal material (Box 9). In spite of this, personal material that was filed originally in the Dropsie College alphabetical files was left untouched.

Group and Series Descriptions

1. Professional and Personal Papers (Boxes 1-20)

As was mentioned above, the professional material was accumulated throughout Neuman's career. Therefore, one may find notes and drafts of articles from an early period of his career, as well as from later periods. Usually the notes and drafts are undated. Except for the Cyrus Adler Biography material, most of the material was unorganized. Therefore, the processor made an effort to group the material in a few boxes. Missing from the collection as a whole is pre-Dropsie College period correspondence with family and colleagues of Dr. Neuman. This might have been kept by the family.

Worth mentioning in this series are:

Addresses (Box 1)

Box 1 consists of addresses made by Neuman on various occasions. The first items on the container list are undated addresses; the rest of the addresses are organized chronologically. The bulk of the material consists of addresses made while Neuman was President of Dropsie College.

For additional information, the researcher may refer to addresses and lectures of Neuman according to specific organizations, universities, etc. in the Dropsie College Correspondence.

Drafts of Books and articles (Boxes 3, 11) and Offprints (Box 8)

These boxes contain drafts of books later published, such as The Jews in Spain, and drafts of articles. Box 8 contains offprints of articles written by Neuman, arranged chronologically. Box 11 also contains typescripts of articles sent to the press.

Correspondence with Neuman on his writings (Box 10)

This box contains correspondence on lectures, articles and books published by Neuman during the 1940s, 1950s and 1960s.

Books of Chronicles (Boxes 6 and 7)

These books were arranged chronologically, probably by Neuman. They include photographs, newspaper clippings and reprints.

Album of Clippings (Box 20)

Arranged probably by Neuman, this album consists of clippings and photographs mainly concerning Neuman's professional activities.

Cyrus Adler Biography (Box 4)

This box contains mainly correspondence with Harry Schneiderman of the American Jewish Committee on the Cyrus Adler biography (1942).

Typescripts and offprints by other authors (Box 5)

Box 5 consists mainly of offprints of articles by other authors. The container list is alphabetically arranged. Correspondence with these authors and sometimes their manuscripts can also be found in the Dropsie College Alphabetical Correspondence.

Notes (Boxes 12-19)

These boxes of notes consist mainly of catalog cards, handwritten by Neuman, including notes for his writings as well as an alphabetical card catalog of various quotations by other authors (Box 17). The notes are in English and Hebrew.

Personal Box (Box 9)

This box consists of scattered material, arranged chronologically: curriculum vitae, correspondence with and by family members, sketches of Neuman, honorary degrees, etc.

2. Dropsie College Correspondence (Boxes 21-91)

Correspondence constitutes the lion’s share of the Neuman Papers. This group is arranged alphabetically and includes personal names, corporate names, and subjects. All files are organized in a strict alphabetical order (Ma before Mc-) and each new letter of the alphabet starts with one or more files of "miscellaneous" correspondence. The "miscellaneous" files consist of correspondence with various persons or organizations too slight in extent for each to be given a separate folder. However, an attempt was made to keep the original filing of material, done by assistants and secretaries of Neuman, even if folders are slight. The rare presence of photographs is indicated in the container list.

The container list consists of a description of boxes which are arranged alphabetically. Files of special interest are specifically mentioned in a note on the "scope and contents" of a box. This includes files which contain correspondence - either short or extensive - with well-known figures (scholars, politicians, rabbis, etc.), organizations (for example, the American Jewish Committee, Hadassah, etc.) or institutions (for example, The Jewish Theological Seminary, The Hebrew University). The correspondence reflects not only professional contacts but sometimes Neuman's personal ties. For example, in the Louis Levinthal correspondence, some of the letters belong to the days of Cyrus Adler's presidency of Dropsie College. Another example is correspondence with the Graduate School for Jewish Social Work, which begins with correspondence with Cyrus Adler and continues with correspondence with Abraham Neuman.

Topical Files

Most of the correspondence files relate to individuals, while others concern organizations, activities or topics. Files pertaining to specific topics usually consist of material sent or received through the mail. There are virtually no "vertical files," or collections of what might be called general information about any subject, although many files do include such ephemera as brochures and newspaper clippings. Dr. Neuman or his assistants did not cross-file carbon copies between individual correspondents and subjects. For example, while there is a file of letters exchanged with Moshe Davis, it does not contain every single letter Neuman exchanged with him. Many other letters both to and from Mr. Davis appear in other files. A researcher seeking information on M. Davis should consult files of the Hebrew University, etc.

Individual Files

Files of individual persons contain both the letters received from that individual (and/or his family) and any drafts or carbon copies made of Neuman's letters to that individual. In addition, many files also contain correspondence to and from others about that individual. For example, files relating to faculty members may contain letters of recommendation submitted on their behalf. A few individual boxes or series are worthwhile mentioning:

Cyrus Adler Correspondence

Box 21 contains mostly correspondence between Neuman and Adler, death notices upon Adler's death and correspondence with Mrs. Adler. This box is important in the Neuman collection because it documents Neuman's history at the College and his relationship with Cyrus Adler. Further correspondence between Adler and Neuman can be found in a few files, such as Fundraising in New York (Box 48).

The American Jewish Committee

Correspondence and ephemera of the American Jewish Committee can be found in boxes 24 and 25. For correspondence with specific members of the Committee, see individual files.

Dropsie College Series

Boxes 37, 38 and 39 contain material relating to Dropsie College administrative and financial matters. History examinations of Dropsie College can also be found in this series.

Fundraising Activity

Boxes 46, 47, 48 and 49 contain material on fundraising activity during the 1950s and 1960s. This material was originally arranged according to names of cities and not according to names of states. The original organization was maintained.

The Jewish Quarterly Review

Box 59 contains correspondence regarding the Jewish Quarterly Review (JQR). As a matter of fact, a large portion of the Dropsie College correspondence consists of correspondence with subscribers of the journal, with potential donors and with scholars wishing to publish in the journal. Drafts of articles, correspondence on content and the structure of articles, as well as rejection letters, are numerous.

The Jewish Theological Seminary

Boxes 60 and 61 contain correspondence and ephemera of the Jewish Theological Seminary (JTS). Elsewhere in the container list, one may find additional information (for instance, correspondence with faculty of the JTS, JTS publications, cooperation on certain topics between the JTS and Dropsie College, etc.).

The Middle East Institute

Boxes 68, 69, 70 and 71 contain correspondence of and about the Middle East Institute.

Neuman as Dropsie College President

Box 79 consists of material relating to Neuman as president of the Dropsie College. Numerous notes of congratulations, sent to Neuman upon his election to the post in 1940, as well as administrative matters concerning Neuman, can be found in this series.

Certificates, Honorary Degrees

Files 92-97 consist of certificates and honorary degrees conferred upon Neuman. They are all oversized and have been transferred to the oversized documents storage.

Scope and Contents

Bulk dates

The majority of the collection is undated, but appears to have been created during Dr. Reider's tenure on the faculty of Dropsie College (1913-1959). There is much material concerning his doctoral thesis on Aquila, accepted in 1913. Those notes written in German may relate to his studies at Gottingen University, prior to his emigration to the United States in 1904.

Contents

The bulk of this material consists of Dr. Reider's lecture notes for the courses which he taught at Dropsie College, and notes for various publications which he either wrote or planned to write.

The materials relating to his work on Aquila are the perhaps most voluminous group on a single subject, followed by his notes on Hebrew grammar. The great majority of these notes were written on 3 x 5" index cards, or paper slips of similar dimensions. Most of the notes were written in ink, but many were written in pencil. Virtually all of it is written in a small hand, suited to the dimensions of the paper, which may limit its legibility.

Other materials include typescripts of articles by Reider and other authors, some unidentified, as well as a small amount of correspondence, printed ephemera, and a few facsimiles (probably incomplete). In addition, numerous ephemeral publications authored by Dr. Reider were transferred to this collection from the Dropsie College Pamphlet Collection. Many of these were taken directly from copies of The Jewish Quarterly Review, published by the College. The only offprint originally found among his papers is the title "Etymological Studies in Biblical Hebrew."

Condition

Much of this material is in poor condition, having been created using acidic papers and improperly stored for many years. The index cards and paper slips, particularly the latter, are brittle and often discolored with their own acidity. Also, many items have been damaged by the residue of decomposed rubber bands and rusted metal clips. In removing these harmful materials, some brittle items were unavoidably torn. There is evidence of some mold on those cards which touched the original metal drawer dividers.

Arrangement

The notes were carefully shifted from metal drawers to acid-free boxes in 1992. It became clear at that time that some of this material was no longer in the original order. The current arrangement of the collection reflects the preliminary-level processing which was done in 1996. The goals of this processing were to remove harmful materials (such as rusted clips), organize the material into series, restore some of the lost order to the English-language materials, and produce a preliminary finding aid.

In Boxes 3-6, blank 3 x 5" guide cards were used to separate the numerous sets of notes which had formerly been bundled together by rubber bands or paper clips. Most of these notes are in the order in which they were found, but some sets of notes have been reorganized to restore them to their presumed original context (for example, two bundles of notes concerning Zacuto were reunited.) Most, but not all, of these sets of notes are prefaced by a "title page"; that is, the group begins with a card or slip bearing only the title of the work.

Titles of note-sets in English are listed in the finding aid just as they appear on the card. Descriptive titles and additional notations which have been given by the processor appear in brackets. The most commonly assigned description is: ["Miscellaneous notes"]. This indicates the presence of additional material without titles or written in languages other than English. A high percentage of the latter material may prove to be out of order. Items found among the note sets which are larger than the 3 x 5" format were removed and placed in folders.

The folders in Box 1 are arranged alphabetically by topic. Those in Box 2 comprise a combination of items removed from the note-sets due to their larger format, and legal-size materials. The folders in Box 7 are arranged alphabetically by title.

Processor's Note

Professor George Foot Moore once remarked: "It requires more scholarship to make a good index than to write a book that is indexed." This quotation is one of the many collected by Dr. Reider, perhaps for use in his own writings and lectures. It underscores the preliminary nature of the present finding aid, which is intended to serve only as a temporary guide to the collection until it can be more completely inventoried.

Scope and Contents

The Margolis collection spans the years 1891-1932, with the bulk of the collection dating from after 1894.

The vast majority of the collection relates to Margolis' various professional activities. Virtually no private papers (i.e., papers of a strictly personal nature) are to be found, although there are various clippings about him collected at the time of his death and what may be a photograph of his wife Evelyn. The collection does provide a convenient guide to Margolis' many literary efforts, including handwritten as well as typescript drafts of his articles, clippings or photostats of virtually all of his popular publications, and reprints of some of his published scholarly writings. There is correspondence relating to Margolis' involvement with the Society for Biblical Literature and thus Semitic studies in the United States and his role in the publication of the Journal of Biblical Literature. Margolis received letters from many of the prominent figures of this discipline, such as Richard Gottheil, Paul Haupt, Morris Jastrow, James Montgomery, and Charles Torrey.

A large part of this collection is composed of Margolis' many scholarly notes, recorded on index cards, and his drafts and notes for his most important scholarly writings: his reconstruction of the Greek translation of the book of Joshua and his efforts as editor-in-chief of the Jewish Publication Society's new translation of the entire Hebrew Bible into English in 1917; the five volume bound typescript of his history of the Jewish people written in collaboration with Alexander Marx; Margolis' important unpublished study in typescript of Andreas Masius' commentary on the Greek book of Joshua, many additional fragmentary manuscripts, and reprints of publications. A bound scrapbook, including a copy of Margolis' dissertation and other writings and correspondence pasted on or inserted between the pages of the volume, is also found in the collection.

Scope and Contents

The Margolis collection was processed in stages, as the project Archivist, Judith Robins, identified and segregated fragments of the Margolis collection found scattered throughout the Institution's archives. Most of the papers, even sixty years after his death, and even as they were found scattered, still bore some of the organizing principles of their creator.

The majority of the processing occurred during the preliminary stages. For example, many of Margolis' drafts and notes were typed on or taped to onion paper, which over the years had become creased and/or curled. Each leaf of this kind was flattened as possible and groups of these pages as they were identified and processed were placed in acid-free containers. Of some tedium was the re-location and physical processing of Margolis' voluminous index/note cards. Hazardous materials (metal clips, etc.) were removed, and colored, index-card sized dividers were inserted to represent the divisions the clips had formerly marked. Nearly 8 LF were re-located for temporary storage. An extremely tentative arrangement was created for the cards, essentially following the order of the boxes in which they were found. To consult the cards, staff assistance should be requested.

An important discovery was made in the collection prior to its processing by a scholar of the Greek translation of the Hebrew Bible (the Septuagint), Emanuel Tov of the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. Dr. Tov recently identified a negative photostatic copy of the never published fifth fascicle of Margolis' published edition of The Book of Joshua in Greek which had been presumed lost. Dr. Tov, in conjunction with the Annenberg Research Institute, has since published this volume (Monograph Series, Annenberg Research Institute, 1992). The (original) photostatic copy is currently found in this collection's  Literary Productions series. Details pertaining to the history and discovery of the fifth part are found in Tov's preface to the recently published volume.

Separated Materials

The original 3 volume bound typescript (and one three volume duplicate) of Margolis' collaborative history of the Jewish people, written with Alexander Marx, can be found in the Archives, shelved with this collection. Alongside these volumes is a typescript of Margolis' "Hebrew Accents" written for the Jewish Encylopedia and one bound volume of the typescript of Margolis' "The Theological Aspect of Reformed Judaism."

Clippings and photostats of Margolis' published articles have been re-located to over-sized storage in the archives room.

Index/note cards (see above, processing) have been housed, for the time being, in an unused catalog card cabinet in the basement of the building (B-2, Room A).

Immediate Source of Acquisition note

In March, 1991, Emanuel Reider, son of Dr. Joseph Reider, donated this collection of his father's papers to the Annenberg Research Institute, successor institution to Dropsie College, which later became the Library at the Herbert D. Katz Center for Advanced Judaic Studies.

Processing Information note

Before the present work (1997) of processing and description began, at least two previous attempts were made to process the collection. The first attempts focused on the physical features of the collection: placing the material into acid-free files, replacing old clips with plastic clips, etc. Apparently, the files that were taken care of were randomly selected, and only a small part was processed. Most of the material was later processed alphabetically (roughly 50 boxes of a total of 91) and placed in containers. The phrase "DC 2 A" was added as a notation on each file folder in the Dropsie College Correspondence series. It seems that this procedure was in accordance with the original filing, either by Neuman or by the registrar, Sarai Zausmer (she signed many of the letters). Evidence to this is pencil notations on many of the documents, for example, "File: Levy", or circles around last names. Such notations might have been added when the files were not self-evident from such information as the signator, letterhead, or addressee. Many of these originally bear the notation "DC" indicating that this material was processed by the administration of Dropsie College. The processor continued processing this collection in this manner.

While the Dropsie College correspondence was mostly prearranged, the processor took the liberty of determining whether to place the material alphabetically or chronologically in the Personal and Professional Papers. The processor also split up files to maintain a standard size for each file. When this was done, it was a chronological division.

The researcher is advised to consult the Cyrus Adler Papers, since for the first period of Neuman's presidency at Dropsie College, Neuman added his correspondence to existing files.
