Detroiter Throws
London Birthday

Staff Report






Friday, August 8, 1986



Louis Elliman didn't spend
his 90th birthday in London
visiting the Queen — but he
came awfully close. The re-
tired Detroit steel magnate
from Detroit threw a party in
London recently to celebrate
the milestone. Traveling from
Detroit to New York, Elliman,
his wife Mollie, and 18 friends
caught the Concorde to Lon-
don. Ninety-one friends and
relatives from around the
world attended the black tie
birthday party at Hyde Park's
Inn on the Park Hotel.
During their London stay,
the Ellimans met with Prime
Minister Margaret Thatcher.
While unable to attend the
birthday party, Thatcher pro-
visionally accepted Elliman's
invitation to his 95th birthday
party in 1991.
Elliman was born in Dublin,
Ireland. He immigrated to the
United States in 1911. He was
the founder of the Elliman
Steel Company. His is a "mod-
ern American success story,"
according to Dr. Richard C.
Hertz, rabbi emeritus of Tem-
ple Beth El, and who accom-
panied Elliman to the London
gala. According to Dr. Hertz,
Elliman is a lifelong member
of Temple Beth El.
"He's quite a remarkable
man, amazing for his years
and for his youthful vision and
vitality," Dr. Hertz added.
Elliman recently contrib-
uted $2 million to establish a
center for medical research
and a vascular research fund
in his name at the Detroit
Medical Center.
