38 A Meeting of Minds

An interesting sub-text to the life of Professor Selig Brodetsky is to be found in his dealings with Montague Burton, the clothing manufacturer and retailer. It was perhaps inevitable that the two should become friends, given their intellectual abilities and shared interest in Zionism. This friendship can be traced back to the early 1920s, when Burton approached Brodetsky with a request that he join him in the running of his business. We are fortunate in having written accounts from both men as to what occurred at that time.

According to Brodetsky, it was in 1923 that Burton suggested he join him in what was already a major business concern. He remembered the occasion well, thirty years later in his Memoirs. He had come to Leeds in 1920 to take up a post at the University of Leeds, where he was soon to become Professor of Applied Mathematics. Preparations were then being made to establish the appropriate Chair within the relevant Department, and he wanted "to remain an academic man", especially since he was preoccupied with writing and publishing papers in the Proceedings of the Royal Society. But he did ask Burton if it would be possible for him to have time off, to devote to his Zionist work. He was told that it must be "a full-time job." And so he "turned it down."

The voluminous diaries of Montague Burton (they run to 919 pages!) contain the entrepreneur's own version of what happened, which essentially confirms that of Professor Brodetsky: he told him the role would "have to be 100 per cent", only to find that Brodetsky "promptly declined the offer", even though it would have meant "an income equivalent to that of a cabinet minister." Evidently somewhat bemused by this response, Burton noted that "the average man" would likely "suffer torment" before arriving at a decision in the matter, but "not so in his case." He "simply weighs the pros and cons on his mathematical scale"!

A leading economic historian has described this as "one of the tantalising might-have-beens of history", trying to speculate as to what might have come to pass had Brodetsky chosen to accept this offer. It would, after all, have united the commercial genius of Sir Montague with the brilliance of the mathematician and polymath. Alas, we shall never know!

39 A.M. Hurwitz was living at '18, St. George, Dartmouth Road, [London] N.W.2' in 1921, and from mid-1925 to at least 1939, at no. 56, Harehills Avenue, Leeds 7. This is in the north eastern district of the city known as Chapeltown, which was home to many members of the Jewish community before the postwar relocation to Moortown. Dora Rebecca was officially living at no. 56 from 1929 [sic], to at least 1939. Both she and he disappear from the electoral rolls for that address after World War II and there were for security and economy reasons no registers published during that war. I have not so far found out why she is not listed at that address until later.

'Max Hurwitz' is listed as no. 205 on the Nazi 'Wanted List' of 1940, drawn up when they were contemplating invasion of this country, and this (terrifyingly) locates him at the same address.You wonder how they knew.

He appears in the Membership Lists of the Jewish Historical Society of England between 1921 and 1931. I have not checked before 1921 or after 1931.

Sources say he was a leading member of the Sinai Movement from its foundation in Leeds in 1919 and that this was still so in 1925, and that on his watch some 400 people passed through its ranks; a press report from 1925 identifies it as the Sinai Association and says he was the Founder and President for the first five years of its existence. The Sinai was an Orthodox educational organisation for the young. He was by 1925 a Barrister, practising on the North Eastern Circuit, and held the degree of LL.B. He was also Treasurer and Vice President of the Brunswick Ward Liberal Party Association in Leeds and 'formerly minister of the Psalm[s] of David Synagogue.' In August 1926, he stood against Professor Selig Brodetsky (1888-1954) in the first contested election for delegate to the Zionist Congress/Mizrachi, but lost.
