Treasure Chest Thursday: "Saul" Myers family advertisement, FLPBA 1949 anniversary publication

- - - from - - -

Mr. & Mrs. Saul Myers


The spelling of Sol's first name in this advertisement is likely a typo as he is consistently referred to as Solomon or Sol in all other records (census, his parents naturalization, his father's probate, and his social security file).

Sol Myers was the middle child and only son of Samuel and Esther Myers. I previously wrote about Sam here and here and Esther, here. Both of Sol's parents were born in the Russian Empire and were active in the First Lubiner Progressive Benevolent Association (FLPBA). 

Sol was born in New York City on 27 December 1920 and grew up in Brooklyn and the Bronx.[1] He was in the Army during World War II, serving from 23 November 1942 to 21 October 1945.[2] He became an accountant (CPA) and taught at the college level.[3] He and his wife Beatrice had five children (clearly only two were born when this FLPBA anniversary publication was printed).

Sol died on 7 August 1986. He and Beatrice are not buried in any of the three FLPBA plots in Montefiore or Beth David Cemeteries in New York.
