Abstract:
Louis Rosenblum (b. 1923) directed the Solar and Electrochemistry Division at the Glenn (formerly Lewis) Research Center of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) in Cleveland, Ohio. Rosenblum was born in Brooklyn, New York, began his higher education at Brooklyn College in 1941, and enlisted and served in the U.S. Army Infantry from 1943 to 1946. Rosenblum served in the Pacific Theater, fought in the battle for Okinawa, was awarded the bronze star, and at the conclusion of hostilities served in the army of occupation in Japan. In 1948, he graduated from Brooklyn College with a B.S. in Organic Chemistry and began employment at NASA. In 1963, Rosenblum and fellow members of Beth Israel-The West Temple, a Cleveland synagogue, founded the Cleveland Council on Soviet Anti-Semitism. Rosenblum served as the CCSA's chairman. In 1970, the CCSA joined with five other grass-root councils to create the Union of Councils for Soviet Jewry (UCSJ), which became the largest independent Soviet Jewry organization in the world. Rosenblum served as the first chairman of the UCSJ. The collection consists of certificates, correspondence, contracts, financial records, family histories, genealogies, newspaper clippings, notes, publication, and scrapbooks.
