The Hornbein family of Denver, Colorado, was actively involved in the Colorado Jewish community. Philip L. Hornbein (1879-1962) was a 1901 graduate of the University of Denver School of Law, a noted trial lawyer, chairman of the Colorado Democratic Party from 1918 to 1920, and President of the National Lawyers Guild Denver chapter from its formation in 1938. He was a founder of Denver's Zionist movement, supporter of JCRS, and led the fight against the Ku Klux Klan during the 1920s. In 1905 he married Flora Anfenger (1888-1964), the daughter of early Colorado pioneer Louis Anfenger, and they had three children: Louis (1907-1912), Marjorie (1913-2006), and Philip, Jr. (1915-1987). Marjorie Hornbein received undergraduate and graduate degrees from the University of Denver, was a founder and served on the executive board of the Rocky Mountain Jewish Historical Society; authored a book and many journal and magazine articles; and contributed to the boards of many charitable, educational, and municipal commissions in Denver. Philip Hornbein, Jr. served in the U.S. Army during World War II and was a labor attorney.
