During last winter, while residing in West Palm Beach, Fla, I had the good fortune to meet and work with Mrs. Zela Reinblatt.

 

When Zela heard my name, she immediately, thought that our family must be part of the family tree that you have developed.

 

My husband is Harry Sverdlove and his father was Zelig Sverdlove. Leon Sverdlove is Harry's brother and my sister-in-law is Lilly Sverdlove.

 

My husband, Harry and his family came to the United States from Montreal, but we do not know any of the Sverdloves from Montreal.

 

We are interested in knowing more about the family tree.

 

We would appreciate hearing from you.

 

Sincerely,

Mrs. Freddy Sverdlove, letter to Andrew I. Sverdlove in his possession.

[xxvi] BIOGRAPHY: Sverdlove, Leon, Volunteers of America - Greater New York, http://www.voa-gny.org/AboutUs/article.asp?id=37, Vintage Volunteer

5/12/2004

Jim Fitzgerald

 

This feature article appeared on Newsday.com on May 12, 2004.

 

VINTAGE VOLUNTEER

 

Throughout his long, left-leaning life, Leon Sverdlove has been guided by one idealistic principle _ "the idea that by helping our fellow man, we can have a better world."

 

The age of 93 is no time to give it up, he says.

 

"I'm never going to abandon the idea," Sverdlove said in an interview before serving lunch to the homeless at the Yorktown Country Residence, a shelter in northern Westchester County. After spending a couple of hours there, he drove to the Hudson Valley Hospital Center in Cortlandt, where he checks on former patients by phone.

 

It's his regular Monday-to-Friday routine, nearly 20 hours a week. Andrew Martin, a spokesman for the Volunteers of America, says Sverdlove is probably the oldest volunteer in the state doing that much work.

 

"You know how it is these days," Sverdlove jokes. "You need two jobs to get by."

 

At the lunch, Sverdlove dons a white apron and clear plastic gloves and dishes out hot dogs, sauerkraut, tangerines, fruit juice and the occasional wisecrack to the clients, some of them addicts or mentally troubled.

 

One woman flirts with him, saying, "Aren't you my sweetheart?"

 

"Definitely," he says.

 

Andrea Jarrett, the program director, said, "Leon is wonderful. He's so respectful of the clients. When he tells us he's going on vacation, we say, "What are we going to do without you?"

 

Suzanne Scott, director of volunteers at the hospital, says Sverdlove calls 800 former patients a month for "satisfaction surveys" and gets fan letters from patients he's contacted.

 

"We're like his second family and to us he's like our grandfather," she says.

 

Sverdlove looks and acts about 70 years old. Besides driving, he does his own shopping and cooking. He has his own rooms in a house in Yorktown Heights he shares with his daughter's family of four.

 

He says his diet in unremarkable, except that his favorite dish is filet mignon and "I'm overeating it, never mind the price." He generally has a bagel with cream cheese for breakfast, a sandwich for lunch, and meat or fish for dinner.

 

Sverdlove, born in Philadelphia in 1910 to Russian immigrants and raised in Montreal, Los Angeles and Manhattan's Lower East Side, said he and his younger brother and sister were orphaned as teens and relied on other relatives as hard times descended. Sverdlove left school after ninth grade.

 

"The Depression made me a socialist," Sverdlove says. "I became socially conscious."

 

He remembers "when we didn't have anyplace to go, when we didn't have enough to eat." When he talks to schoolchildren about his experiences, "They always ask me, `Why didn't you go on welfare?' and I have to tell them there was no welfare then. We had to go to the police station for some bread or rice."

 

When he was 15 or 16, Sverdlove became an apprentice stone setter in the jewelry district, then centered on Fulton Street in Lower Manhattan. He quickly began militating for a union _ "it cost me a job now and then," he says _ and helped found the International Jewelry Workers Union, which won its first contract in 1936.

 

From 1941 on, he was employed by the union and eventually became international president, the position he held when the union was merged with the Service Employees International Union. He then served on the SEIU's executive board.

 

Meanwhile, he got married in 1936 and served during World War II in the Army Air Force, repairing the gun turrets on B-26 bombers in England and France, he said.

 

"Sometimes they came back (from bombing missions) pretty shot up," he said. "The worst was when they didn't come back at all."

 

He was older than most of the airmen _ 34 when the war ended _ but even then didn't look his age, he said. In his time with the jewelers, he said, he heard a lot of, "We can't have a kid running the union."

 

Sverdlove admits to a youthful flirtation with radicals _ the dance at which he met his wife-to-be "was organized by some left-wing group, maybe the Communists." He lost faith in the Soviet Union in the 1950s but holds fast to many of the tenets of socialism.

 

"I marched in every demonstration," he said. "I was always interested in making things better for the poor. The right to organize, civil rights. I think being interested in people, in how people are doing, helped me live this long. I want to see how things turn out."

 

He speaks with pride of some landmark gatherings _ he went to the Paul Robeson concert-turned-riot in Peekskill in 1949 and heard Martin Luther King in Washington in 1963, he said.

 

"I bought 500 Paul Robeson stamps when they came out," he says. "Everybody I write to gets a Paul Robeson stamp."

 

He demanded to see his FBI file and received "about 35 or 40 pages, two-thirds of it blacked out," he says. "What I could read was mostly innocuous, `Sverdlove opposed the Rosenberg executions' or `Sverdlove signed this petition.' They didn't really have anything on me."

 

He does not try to hide his dismay over the war in Iraq.

 

"This was a pre-emptive kind of war," he said. "That's not what we should be doing. I was opposed from Day One. Vietnam, too."

 

Sverdlove travels widely, and expects to attend the SEIU convention in San Francisco next month. He takes cruises with his daughter's family and recently surprised his 92-year-old brother with a visit to his Florida home.

 

"He doesn't get around as well as I do," Sverdlove says. His sister is also still alive, at 88.

 

After he retired in 1980, Sverdlove remained available to the union for such troubleshooting chores as becoming trustee of a troubled upstate local, he said. But it wasn't enough. His wife, Sema, died in 1982, and "I realized it wasn't enough just doing chores, taking care of the trees and the flowers. You can read The New York Times every day, but then what do you do?"

 

Six years ago, he pounced on an ad for the Volunteers of America and has been happily engaged ever since in what he finds to be a logical extension of his career.

 

"All those years in the union, I fought for things like Social Security, pensions, all the things people needed. Now I'm helping to feed the hungry and help the sick.", Google search for SVERDLOVE on 9-Feb-2005.

Dear Andy;

 

Laurie's uncle Leon was born in 1910 in Philadelphia and ended up being head of the jewelery union in New York. He is still alive and does volunteer work at 93. I asked her to send me her father's name. Apparently her Uncle Leon's son is whom Myra accessed but they are estranged because of the wife.The old

man has never met his grandson who is a musician at the U. of Penn. He has a website.

[xxxii] BIOGRAPHY-CITATION: Paul Robeson, Riot at Paul Robeson concert , [online database] http://www.historychannel.com/speeches/archive/speech_454.html, "Go on back to Russia, you n-----." (Cortlandt, New York, September 4, 1949)

In the 1920s and '30s, Paul Robeson achieved worldwide fame as a singer and stage actor. The son of a runaway slave, Robeson attended Rutgers University, where he was an All-American football player and graduated at the head of his class. He later received a law degree from Columbia University, but because of the lack of opportunities for African Americans in the legal profession, he became an actor. In 1924, his appearance in the title role of Eugene O'Neill's play The Emperor Jones caused a sensation, and he soon became known the world over for his powerful bass-baritone singing voice. He spoke out tirelessly against racial discrimination and joined the Communist Party, visiting the Soviet Union in 1934 and openly supporting left-wing causes. As the Cold War intensified after World War II, he came under increasing fire for his leftist views. On August 27, 1949, a concert by Robeson and other left-wing singers in Peekskill, New York, was called off after a mob smashed chairs and beat concertgoers. In the aftermath, Roberson was invited back to Westchester County, this time to play in a field in Cortlandt, just outside of Peekskill. On September 4, more than 10,000 people turned out to see Roberson sing songs like "Go Down, Moses," "Song of the Warsaw Ghetto," and "Ol' Man River." Police and civilian guards kept anti-communist protestors at bay during the performance, but violence broke out after the concert, with concertgoers having to run a gauntlet of rock throwers as they attempted to drive away. No one was killed, but hundreds were injured. In 1950, Robeson refused to sign an affidavit disclaiming his membership in the Communist Party, and the U.S. State Department took away his passport. Blacklisted in the United States and unable to travel abroad to perform, he was effectively silenced until 1958, when the U.S. Supreme Court overturned the affidavit ruling. He then spent five years traveling and living in Western and Eastern Europe, returning to the United States in 1963. He died in Philadelphia in 1976.

He settled in New York City and in 1925 joined the Painters Union, Local 499. Weinstock became one of the leaders of the Rank and File movement in District Council 9 of the International Painters and Paperhangers. Weinstock fought for Social Security and initiated the drive for unemployment insurance. Weinstock also led the Rank-and-File painters caucus in a fight against corruption in the union. Weinstock defeated the corrupt leadership of the infamous Lepke-Gurrah racketeer gang and was elected to the office of Secretary-Treasurer. In 1951, Weinstock was charged with conspiring to violate the Smith Act while teaching a trade union class; he was found guilty and sentenced to three years in jail. Weinstock retired from the union in 1963 and died in 1994 from heart failure., Tamiment Library/Robert F.

[xxxvii] INTERVIEW: Interview by Debra Bernhardt 10/23/79 of Leon Sverdlove, Leon Sverdlove On the Taft-Hartley Act , Wagner Labor Archives/Tamiment Library [online] http://historymatters.gmu.edu/d/6930/, Guide to the New Yorkers at Work Oral History Collection, 1979-2000. Tamiment Library/Robert F. Wagner Labor Archives; Elmer Holmes Bobst Library, 70 Washington Square South, New York, NY 10012, The Taft-Hartley Act, passed in 1947, symbolized the anti-labor climate of postwar America. The act expanded the power of employers and the government to prevent union organizing and strikes, and made it difficult for unions to take industrial action. The most difficult aspect of the bill for many unions to swallow required labor leaders to declare themselves to be non-Communist if they wanted to participate in NLRB elections. While many union members, like Leon Sverdlove of the Jewelry Workers union in New York, resented having to divulge their political views, they accepted the acts requirement in order to protect what union rights they had left. As Sverdlove found, however, even accepting the acts dictates did not protect unions and their members from accusations of communism, and many unions and workers suspected as communist sympathizers were forced out of organized labor.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

SVERDLOVE: So people were looking down their noses at us, as having sold out, or betrayed the interests of the working class, but it made no sense to us. And it was even more dramatic when it came to the Taft-Hartley Act. If you didnt sign the Taft-Hartley Act, you couldnt have elections, you couldnt present grievances against the employer for unfair labor practices. And a lot of unions, with people like myself, who felt the way we did, were heroic about it. Well never sign. Why should we have to? Asking us our politics under the American constitution . . . It all sounded good, but it wasnt for real.; it just wasnt for real. So, if we dont sign, were going to leave ourselves wide open to charges by the International that were not protecting the interests of the members of the union, which would be very true. And it would make us subject to charges and possible expulsion and then what? So wed have a group, a few of us left-thinking, progressive-thinking people who would be bounced out, after all the years of work... And then what? And thats exactly what happened to so many left-wing unions. Its as if somebody had just a few firecrackers to shoot off, and he shotem off before the Fourth of July, and on the Fourth of July he had nothing. Thats the way we felt about it. So we signed the Taft-Hartley Act, you know, we signed whatever the document was that to be signed that could resort to the Labor Board. How could you exist? We would say, How can we get along without the Labor Board? You just couldnt do it.

 

We made the turn, and we became, what shall I say more moderate. But that didnt prevent us from continuing to sponsor, to participate in anything that was progressive. I would say that the connection that was severed was one of a specific left-wing policy sponsored by the Communists at that time. Thats what we broke with. Im not ready to dump that whole period, and flush it down the drain. I dont think so. For me, it was a real developmental thing and I have to admit, depending on what you want to call it, any education that I had, was during the course of the years that I spent in the left-wing movement, closely associated and related to the Communist Party. Theres no question about it, that whatever inherent abilities I might have had were sharpened and developed in that period.

 

From 1947 to 1959 were the twelve years in which the political factor was used by those who were posed against us. But they had changed in character from being social democrats to being out-and-out racketeers. [In the 1947 election] we were defeated on the basis of speeches made that we were agents from Moscow that was the height of the McCarthy period it was just the beginning of that rather. Thats all they could say against us, that we were Communists. They dug up leaflets and they clobbered us. From then on, until 1959, it was one big struggle to get rid of them. Wed go to conventions really concerned for our physical well-being. Telephone calls to our homes, to our wives, three oclock in the morning, You want to see your husband tomorrow? He knows what hes got to do. Things of that sort. But we finally caught up with them and from then on out I would say that, first of all the racketeering locals disappeared some left on their own, some we expelled till we got rid of all of them. Some of them went to jail. Others are still under indictment. But that was the fight that took place in all those years up to '59. Then [Harry] Spodick was elected, and it was after that that I would say that the political atmosphere changed. We still battled, but it wasnt what it had been before. It wasnt a question of getting the racketeers out anymore. To the point where in 1968 when I ran, I ran unopposed. That was amazing. To run unopposed after all those years.

Andrew,

 

Thank you for sending me the genealogy. It is fascinating.

 

However, I have a few corrections to make. I was born in Manhattan and lived at 166 Second Avenue, Manhattan. When I was 7 (after my sister was born) we moved to Sunnyside, Queens (39-49 44th St.). I graduated from Queens College (CUNY) in 1970 and received my MA degree from Queens College in 1972. I have a Ph.D. in Geology and Oceanography from the University of Cincinnati, 1983. I have worked at the Revlon Research Center (in Edison NJ) and for the past 17 years have been employed by Schering-Plough (pharmaceuticals), in Kenilworth NJ, as an Information Technology analyst. My specialty is creating global Standard Operating Procedures for the Global Information Technology department.

 

My wife Louise was born Oct 7, 1947 in Manhattan NY. We were married on June 20, 1976 at the Manhattan Beach Jewish Center in Brooklyn, NY. She is a lifetime member of the Arts Students League in Manhattan where she studied anatomy and life drawing with Robert Beverly Hale and oil painting with Robert Brachman.

 

My son Max never attended Julliard. However he studied with Lewis Kaplan, one of the main violin teachers at Julliard. Mr. Kaplan was the co-founder of the Bowdoin International Music Festival, which is going into its 26th year. Max has attended the festival almost each summer since the age of 13. Max is currently 20 and will be graduating PSU this May. For more information visit Sverdlove.com

 

[Leon] has met his grandson (Max) and was present at his Bris where he was given the honor of being his Shaliach.

I don't know much about my Uncle Harry Sverdlove's family. I am related to him by marriage. My grandfather was Charles Uger. One of his sisters, Freda (my aunt), married Harry Sverdlove. They live in Florida now and are in their late 80s. They lived in New York most of their life together and were excellent dancers - - they danced (as a hobby) all over the world. Laurie Goldman is their daughter. I think I have heard that Harry's ancestors came from the Siberia area of Russia.

 

If you have any specific questions, I could try to ask Harry for you.

 

Cheers,
