Acquisition Information

The Hadassah Archives, of which the Personal Papers and Special Collections of Influential Executives, Volunteers, and Individuals Associated with Hadassah (I-578/RG 7) is part, are on long-term deposit at the American Jewish Historical Society. The Lillian Schwartz Brodkey Papers were donated by Lillian Brodkey in 2012 (accession 2012.019).

Processing Information

In December 1999, Hadassah and the American Jewish Historical Society (AJHS) entered an agreement placing the Hadassah Archives on deposit at AJHS for its safekeeping and maintenance. In November 2000, the Hadassah Archives were moved to AJHS under the management of the Director of the Hadassah Archives, Susan Woodland. In 2014, under a new agreement between Hadassah and AJHS, the Hadassah Archives were placed on long-term deposit at AJHS.

In 2016, the nine collections that comprise RG 7 were processed or reprocessed. Description from a previous finding aid published in 1984 ("The Papers of Denise Tourover Ezekiel, 1936-1981, in the Hadassah Archives") and other unpublished inventories and scope and content notes was reused and/or revised and incorporated into the 2016 finding aid as much as possible. Biographical notes were added and collection-level notes pertaining to scope and content, acquisition, processing, access and use, separations, microfilm, preferred citation, previous finding aids and concordance, and related material were added as well. Many folder titles and dates were revised to be compliant with the archival descriptive standard, Describing Archives: A Content Standard (DACS).

The boxes were consolidated to save space and reduce damage to the material (slumping) and most plastic paper clips were removed. Boxes and folders were renumbered to create uniform numbering across the entire record group and a concordance was created linking the previous box and folder numbers to the new numbers. Some boxes were replaced and many of the folders were also replaced. Unprocessed materials were also incorporated into the collections.

A notebook of field reports in the Lillian Schwartz Brodkey Papers was sent for conservation treatment for inactive mold to the Center for Jewish History's Werner J. and Gisella Levi Cahnman Preservation Laboratory. Treatment was completed in August 2016.

Section 2: Persons of Influence on Hadassah, 1910-2003

Material in this section is primarily in English with some Hebrew, French, and German.
Arrangement:

Alphabetical by last name of person.

Scope and Content:

This section documents individuals that were influential and important to Hadassah: Louis D. Brandeis, Jesse Zel Lurie, Golda Meir, and Abraham Tulin. Two of the collections (the "Collection on Louis D. Brandeis" and the "Collection on Golda Meir") were compiled and created by Hadassah. The Jesse Zel Lurie Papers (Lurie served as editor of Hadassah Magazine and its predecessor the Hadassah Newsletter) were primarily created and kept by Lurie, though there is some material that was compiled by Hadassah. The majority of the Abraham Tulin Papers were donated to Hadassah by his wife Anna Tulin (later Anna Tulin Elyachar; her papers are located in Section 1 of this record group). Abraham Tulin was an American lawyer who served as counsel to Hadassah.
