1 AARON GLASSBERG [LATER VOLPE] 1911 ORIGINAL MANUSCRIPT DIARY HANDWRITTEN BY A RUSSIAN BORN, TORONTO EMIGREE AND ZIONIST 16 YEAR OLD JARVIS COLLEGIATE STUDENT AND FUTURE PATRIARCH OF A FAMILY OF DOCTORS
TORONTO ONTARIO ON ROSTOV RUSSIA 1911 Very Good Manuscript 
On offer is a remarkable original 1911 handwritten manuscript diary by a young Jewish boy named Aaron Glassberg [later Aaron Glassberg Volpe] living in Toronto Canada. All the more remarkable is the clear, articulate and fluent manner this 16 year old, who born in Rostov Russia in 1895, writes after having only lived in Canada for 5 years. Our writer is a smart, tough, mannered kid who experiences a young raw Toronto. Anti-semitism is a reality of the time and the city and this young Zionist is not a stranger to it. He so identifies with his Jewishness he identifies all his contacts by religion either by fact or intuition. He talks of many meetings of the Zionist Club. His family rents rooms and he bitterly complains of the sweet talking tenant who absconded owing $10. From Elizabeth Street near Kensington Market he travels across town daily to attend Jarvis Collegiate. Collectors and historians of early 20th century Toronto would be hard pressed to find a more explicit look at the times than this journal. On a biographical note the author goes on to become a chemist, pharmacist and successful business man and doctor who was the patriarch of a family of doctors. A full length photograph of the young Glassberg is pasted to the fep. Along with the diary, a large 6 x 7 inch journal style book, are a large number of ephemera pieces from 1906 through 1969 relating to Aaron Glassberg and his family. Overall G+.
