Loeb Book Sale

An American Experience: Adeline Moses Loeb and Her Early American Jewish Ancestors

 

With an introduction by Eli N. Evans
Contributors: John L. Loeb Jr., Kathy L. Plotkin, Margaret Loeb Kempner, Judith E. Endelman


 

This generational family memoir is presented in three stand-alone sections salted with full-color early American portraits, genealogical trees, historical maps, and family photographs.

In Ambassador Loeb’s appended essay, “Anatomy of Patriotism” is a reminder that we are a nation of immigrants whose experiment in diversity and tolerance has succeeded beyond even its founders’ wildest dreams.

“A model for genealogists, a gift to historians, and a treasure for anyone who loves American portraiture, this magnificently produced volume sets a new standard for family history. It reveals much not only about John L. Loeb Jr., Adeline Moses Loeb, and the ancestors who shaped them, but also about their American Jewish experience as a whole, from its early colonial beginnings.”
