  • Tillye Levy Papers

    ID: B260

    Creator: Levy, Tillye Shulman (Matilda), 1895-1984

    Creator: National Council of Jewish Women. Denver Section

    Abstract: Tillye Shulman Levy was one of the Denver Jewish community’s most dedicated and effective volunteers. Born in Central City in 1895, she first became involved in philanthropic charity work as a young woman, after meeting Fannie Lorber, the longtime president of the Denver Sheltering Home for Jewish Children. As a teenager, Tillye worked at the Denver Trunk Factory in downtown Denver, located next door to the Lorber Shoe Company. Mrs. Lorber interested Tillye in the children and soon she was spending Sundays at the Home, visiting and playing with the young charges. After her marriage, Mrs. Levy became a member of the Sheltering Home Board. She later recalled, “Mrs. Lorber really started me off on a career of social service,” which was to include the boards of the Allied Jewish Federation, National Council of Jewish Women, and the Jewish Family and Children’s Service. She spearheaded a number of organizations that helped refugees. The Rocky Mountain Jewish Historical Society Oral Histories, B098, have a number of audio recordings of Tillye Levy, including one in which she relates the history of the Jewish Family and Children’s Service, in rhyme.

  • Ted and Jessie Shwayder Harsham Photograph Collection

    ID: B101

    Creator: Harsham, Ted E.

    Abstract: Jessie Shwayder Harsham (named after her grandfather) is a descendant of the Shwayder family, one of the first Jewish families to settle in Colorado. The first member of the extended family, Abraham Rittmaster, arrived in Colorado in the early 1860s and encouraged other family members, including the Rachofskys, Kobeys, and Shwayders to join him in his successful dry goods enterprise in Central City, Colorado. Some family members migrated to other communities in the state, and the Kobeys became prominent in Aspen as the operators of Kobeys Shoe and Clothing Company. In the early 1900s, Jesse Shwayder opened a small luggage factory in Denver with his father Isaac, and brothers Mark, Maurice, Benjamin, and Solomon. Together they eventually turned it into one of the largest luggage producers in America, the Samsonite Company.
