brother, Irving W., founded Blum-
berg Brothers Insurance Agency.

ried thelcormer Edith Brown. They
reside at 333 Covington.
As his insurance business grew
and prospered Louis Blumberg has
unstintingly given of his time and
efforts to any worthy cause brought
to his attention, and in . turn his
community has gratefully bestowed
upon him many coveted honors.
A highly respected leader of the
Allied Jewish Campaign, he is a
past president of Franklin Hills
Country Club and Standard City
Club. He is at present serving on
the board of trustees of Sinai Hos-
pital.
He is a life member of Perfec-
tion Lodge of Masonic Order, the
National Conference of Christians
and Jews, Boys Club of Metropoli-
tan Detroit, American . Jewish Con-
gress and American Jewish Com-
mittee, and is a charter member

olics, Jews and Protestants.

Shaarey Zedek, Temple Beth El,
Downtown Synagogue, the "400"
Club, Detroit Board of Commerce,
Great Lakes Club, and the Detroit
and Michigan Insurance Associa-
tions.
