Abe, himself, was a curious amalgam, a believer in true democracy in the workplace  and absolute dictatorship at home.

Abe and Eva’s daughter Lillian was born in the same year as his union. Murray followed in 1915, and Rose, in 1921.

Toys were verboten.
Reading was encouraged.
In his mausoleum-like bookcase behind huge volumes of never-opened Yiddish books,
Abe buried his children’s things: the gifts of toys he forbade along with the medals of excellence he cherished.
