New York, NY, USA

Leah Kreinik Jacobowitz: " Buddy's birthday was the occasion of a double affair: his Brith and the engagement of Jennie to Adolph Treuhaft. My folks prepared a banquet, the Jacobowitz family were invited, and Father J. performed both ceremonies. Orthodox people still wrote the "Contract" of marriage those days. On the day of Eugene's birth, Ruth and Miriam were in Riverside Park with Cousin "Dan" (Sam, as Ruth called him), amd whjem they came back, Miriam took a look at that big baby (the doctor said he was 13 pounds), tickled hsim and said "Hi-ya Fatty-Fatty", and both girls called him "Buddy."

" Bud, after graduating high school, had gone on to Cooper Union Institute of Technology in New York City. Admission was by competitive exam to the tuition-free College. I, too, passed the exam, taking a course in electrical engineering. I completed the first year. There was a rumor that, of the six graduates (out of fifty who had entered as freshmen) that year, five got jobs. The sixth one was rumored to be a Jew. I didn't wait around to find out if the rumor was true. I knew the reputations for discrimination of the only few companies hiring engineers in that
Great Depression. I decided that this was no. place for a nice Jewish
boy named Jacobowitz." Norman B Jacobowitz, Letter to My Grandsons, 1984, p. 40
