Louis C. Blumberg, who
attained an indelible role
among the leading philan-
thropists in Michigan, died
suddenly Jan. 13 in West
Palm Beach, Fla., at age 82.
The accumulated be-
nefactions bearing his name
are encyclopedic, many re-
lated to his activism in
communal ranks, especially
the Jewish movements.
His volunteerism in sup-
port of the Jewish agencies
and of the Zionist causes,
subsequently Israel, were
shared with his late twin
brother, Irving. The two
brothers were among the
most prominent in Allied
Jewish Campaign and
Jewish Welfare Federation
ranks as early as 1929,
under the executive direc-
torship of John Slawson and
Kurt Peiser.
At the same time, Louis
Blumberg commenced
his interest in sports, as a
Tiger fan and as an inti-
mate friend of Hank
Greenberg who was
among the first to express
his sorrow over Mr.
Blumberg's passing as "a
great loss to all of us."
Louis and Irving Blum-
berg organized the Blum-
berg Brothers Insurance Co.
in Detroit in 1925. In 1977,
the company merged to
form Hermelin, Colburn,
Colburn, Blumberg and
Steinberg Insurance Co.

Of the many tributes to
his memory, those of
nephews Robert Steinberg
and Graham Landau were
among the most moving.
Both had been associated
with him in business and
community affairs, and
both described the devo-
tions of their uncle and his
deep desire, especially in
the last decade, to bequeath
a legacy of generosity and
deep-rooted devotion, "as

LOUIS C. BLUMBERG

the only way of utilizing
what wealth I may have," as
he had told them.
Over the past few years,
Mr. Blumberg donated mil-
lions to Jewish communal
causes and institutions. In
appreciation for a million-
dollar gift, Sinai Hospital
named its tallest building
the Louis C. and Edith B.
Blumberg Wing.
In recognition of a
large gift to Jewish Fed-
eration Apartments and
Jewish Home for Aged's
new Hechtman Apart-
ments and Edward I. and
Freda Fleischman Resi-
dence adjacent to the
main Jewish Community
Center in West Bloom-
field, the plaza connect-
ing the two structures is
named for the late Mr.
and Mrs. Blumberg.
The Jewish Association
for Retarded Citizens
named its sixth Haverim
Home, located in Pleasant
Ridge, in honor of the late
philanthropist and his wife
in gratitude for a gift to pur-
chase the residence.
Mr. Blumberg's devotions
were also in the general
field, as a contributor to
many causes like the De-
troit Round Table of the Na-

tional Conference of Chris-
tians and Jews and related
movements aiding all
faiths, regardless of race or
color.
He took a deep interest in
the visually handicapped
with his generous gift to the
Farmington Hills Public
Library, establishing that
fund in honor of Philip
Slomovitz.
Miss Carol Hund, in an
expression of sorrow
over his passing, paid
tribute to the deceased
who had become a patron
of the library and had
provided assistance in
advancing its needs.
Mr. Blumberg counted
among his affiliations the
Franklin Hills Country
Club of which he was a past
president and the Standard
City Club of which he also
was a past president, Cong.
Shaarey Zedek, Temple
Beth El and the Downtown
Synagogue.
In 1982, Mr. Blumberg
was honored by Perfection
Lodge of the Masons, at its
annual dinner, on the occa-
sion of the 60th anniversary
of his affiliation with the
Masonic order.
He leaves a sister, Mrs.
Samuel (Esther) Steinberg;
and nieces and nephews.
