FANNIE WETSMAN
SAULSON

people.
Mrs. Saul (Marjorie)
Saulson, the honoree's
daughter-in-law, who, with
her husband and William
Saulson, Fannie Saulson's
sons, sponsored the function
at Jacques', was toastmis-
tress at the informal pro-
gram during which rela-
tives and friends recalled
the Wetsman-Saulson-Da-
vidson role in this state.

Pioneers in Cong.
Shaarey Zedek — two
members of the family
having served as the
synagogue's presidents
— and holding important
roles in the state, includ-
ing northern Michigan
mayoralties, the family
was described as having
an indelible record in
Zionism.
Joseph Wetsman, the
father of Fannie the
nonagenarian, was among
the earliest Zionists here.
With David W. Simons, who
was a member of the first
Detroit nine-man City
Council, who also was a
Shaarey Zedek president,
he donated the land on
Mount Scopus on which the
Hadassah Hospital was
originally built.
In the recollections of the
services rendered to
Zionism by Fannie
Wetsman Saulson and her
sister, Sally Davidson, her
senior by two years, it was
recalled that the Detroit
Chapter of Hadassah actu-
ally was established in the
Wetsman home when the
movement's founder, Hen-
rietta Szold, was a guest at
their home. There was no
interruption in the
Wetsman girls' devotion to
the movement since then.
These are a few of the
memorable contributions
made by the Wetsmans,
continuing with the iden-
tifications of the Saulsons
and the Davidsons, in major
Jewish activities.
A native of Iowa, Mrs.
Saulson came to Detroit
at age 13 and attended
Central High School. In
12th grade, she won the
German Prize for girls.

Mrs. Saulson was active
at Cong. Shaarey Zedek and
for eight years was trea-
surer of the woman's auxil-
iary of the Talmud Torah.
She traveled to Alaska,
Colorado, Canada and
Europe and accompanied
her father to Zionist con-
ventions.
She married Morse Saul-
son in 1922. Saulson died in
1944 when he and his
brother-in-law, Ralph
Davidson, were killed in an
automobile accident.
Following her hus-
band's death, Mrs. Saul'
son managed
Linwood-LaSalle Thea-
ter.
She became president of
the Metropolitan Detroit
Chapter of Hadassah in
1951 and served until 1953.

The energies of our sys-
tem will decay, the glory of
the sun will be dimmer, and
the earthy, tideless and in-
ert, will no longer tolerate
the race which has for a
moment disturbed its sol-
itude. Man will go down the
pit, and all his thoughts will
perish.
