On Jakob Klatzkin (from public domain encyclopedias):Jakob Klatzkin a.k.a. Yakov/Jakub Klaczkin (1882 - 1948) was a Jewish philosopher, publicist and publisher. He was a son of Rabbi Eliyahu Klaczkin (1852 - 1932, Jerusalem). Klatzkin was mainly known for being, alongside Ismar Elbogen, the chief editor of the unfinished German-language Encyclopedia Judaica (published by Eshkol Publishing Society), that was published in Berlin between the years 1928-1934. Ten volumes from Aach to Lyra appeared before the project halted due to the Nazi persecutions. Klatzkin, a main critic of Achad haAm's notion of Israel's unique morality, rejected the notion of chosenness for the Jewish people, either religious or secular. He believed ethic to be universal, not the possession of a particular people. On Julian Morgenstern (from American Jewish Archives, where most of his papers were donated to by his daughter):Julian Morgenstern was born in St. Francisville, Illinois, March 18, 1881. (.)He received a B.A. Degree from the University of Cincinnati in 1901 and was ordained as Rabbi at the Hebrew Union College (H.U.C.) in 1902. After ordination he carried on graduate work in Semitic languages at the Universities of Berlin and Heidelberg and in 1904 received the degree of Ph.D. from the latter institution. From 1904 to 1907 he served as Rabbi of Congregation Ahaveth Achim in Lafayette, Indiana. In 1907 Morgenstern was called back to Hebrew Union College as Instructor in Bible and Semitic languages. He was steadily promoted, first to the rank of Associate Professor in 1910, and then to Professor in 1913. In 1921 he was appointed Acting President and in 1922 President of Hebrew Union College. He was the first native-born American and alumnus of Hebrew Union College to become its president. (.) Morgenstern was also active as a scholar in the fields of Biblical Science and the History of Religion, particularly the History of Judaism in the Biblical period. He contributed many studies to scientific journals, both American and foreign. Morgenstern died in 1976 at the age of 95 in a Macon, Georgia nursing home.On Jacob Rader Marcus (from the American Jewish Archives):Jacob Rader Marcus, historian, educator, rabbi, and founder of the American Jewish Archives was born near Connellsville, Pennsylvania on March 5, 1896. (.) In June 1920, a year after his return from the army, Marcus was ordained a rabbi and was appointed to the faculty of Hebrew Union College. He went to Germany to study at the University of Berlin in 1923 and received his Ph.D. in 1925, magna cum laude. He returned to Cincinnati in 1926 and continued teaching at the Hebrew Union College. He taught courses in the Bible and modern history.(.) In 1938 he published The Jew in the Medieval World, the first source book in English on medieval Jewish history, still used as a text for college courses nearly six decades after its first publication. In 1942, Marcus taught the first course ever to be given in a. Bookseller Inventory # 18137
