    • Edward Rapp erapp@infi.net

      From the 1930 Census of 14 April 1930: Lived at 137 Harper Street, Brooklyn Owned home, valued at $7500. Has radio. Age last birthday 62, married at age 20, able to read and write. Born in Austria, immigrated in 1886. Parents born in Austria. US citizen. Spoke Jewish in Austria. Manufacturer of Paper Bags, Code 7246. Wife Rebecca, daughter Helen live with him. Census enumeration district 36, page 13B, Brooklyn, NY, Kings County.

      Louis came to the United States as a young person. Marvin indicated that he was married shortly after he emigrated. The family name was spelled Glickmann in Europe. Marvin believes that he emigrated from Vienna. Hebrew name Lev according to Mollie Fox tombstone.

      Morris was the first of his children, Helen the last, and Charles next to last. The order of the others is not known by Gloria Gross Rapp.

      Louis Glickman owned a Paper Bag factory in Williamsburg section of Brooklyn (Greenpoint), L. Glickman & Co. It was started in 1898, (in Manhattan according to Barbara November Levey). He was comfortably wealthy.

      According to Marvin Glickman (see SOURCE in Marvin's record) the paper business started when Louis was a jobber. He later started a manufacturing plant in downtown New York making paper bags. In about 1917-18 there was an explosion and fire which destroyed the plant there. The company then moved to a new manufacturing site in the Greenpoint section of Brooklyn. At Louis death the business was divided among all the children, and Morris, in order to maintain control of the business had to buy out the others within one year. He managed to do this because of the good returns from the business. The buy-out consisted largely of the manufacturing equipment, the biggest asset owned by the company.

      His daughter Sylvia's husband (Gabe November) became involved in the business, apparently running the business. Later David Levey, Sylvia's son-in-law, a mechanical engineering graduate, also became involved. Along the way the name was changed to U. S. Paper Bag Co. After Gabe November was married a second time the company was dissolved, and no longer exists.

      His Death Certificate from Florida is from Miami Beach, Dade County. Death came 21 days after coming to Florida. His death occurred at 6 Victor Hotel. He had been in the United States for 50 years at the time. His residence is listed as 137 Hooper St, Brooklyn, NY. He is a widowed white male, about 70 years of age. His trade is listed as paper manufacturing, for 35 years. He was born in Austria to Isadore and Helen Glickman. The undertaker was Neriley (?) Funeral Home in Miami Beach. His body was removed to New York for burial. His personal information was supplied by Mrs. Mollie Fox of Brooklyn, his daughter. He died February 21, 1938 at 3:15 pm from a coronary thrombosis. Signed by Alexander Robbins, MD. Florida death index Vol 790, Certificate 2709.

      Louis is buried in Mount Judean Cemetery in Queens, Long Island, along with many others of his family. His tombstone gives his death date as 21 Feb 1938. Cemetery File 0134: Residence - Miami Beach, FL - Burial date 24 Feb 1938, age 70-0-0.

      Owner of plot; Louis Glickman Plot Sec 2, Bl 2, Row Map Grave number next to Rebecca Glickman, front of monument, right side. Hebrew inscription on the tombstone says "Louis son of Asher". Adar was the Hebrew month of his death.

      The cemetery record is used to estimate his birth date as 1868.

      He was known as a Galiciana. Galicia was a part of the Habsburg Austria-Hungarian Empire. The area was partioned off from western Poland in 1772.

      His mother lived in Russia or Poland, possibly in the Galician area.

      His father came to the United States and is buried in Brooklyn, but not in Mount Judah Cemetery..

      Gloria Glickman Gross Rapp recalls that he moved from New Brunswick, NJ to New York - Brooklyn - he lived on Greenpoint Avenue and was president of the synagogue in Williamsburg on South Fifth Street . Marvin indicated that it was an old style orthodox synagogue, with the pulpit located in the center of the room, and around which the dignitaries, including Louis, sat. The women all sat upstairs. The building was sold and no longer exists as a synagogue.

      Louis and Rebecca had eight children, one of whom died.

      Interview with Joan Glickman Serisky in November 2001:
      "Louis Glickman's company made corrugated boxes in Brooklyn. (A trucker told Joan that Louis squeezed a dollar very hard.) Charles Glickman did legal and accounting work for him on Saturdays, in addition to his regular legal work. He worked on a retainer to the paper box company. Joan sometimes went with her father Charles on Saturdays. Louis lived in a brownstone house in Williamsburg.
      Grandma Glickman was a very nice lady. After grandma died Louis had a mistress. The family said nasty things about that relationship."
