Capturing Greatness

New Max Fisher archival website brings
'Dean of American Jewry' to life for all.


ew people have played a larger
role in business, world poli-
tics and community service
than Max M. Fisher. His prominent
leadership roles won him the title of
the Dean of American Jewry. Without
question, he was a great historic figure,
not only of Detroit, but of the nation,
Israel and the world.
He was a trusted adviser to many
U.S. presidents and, in his capacity as
chairman of the United Jewish Appeal
and later the Jewish Agency for Israel,
he championed and defended Israel.
Fisher also was meticulously orga-
nized and maintained a remarkable
library, worthy of public exhibition.
Drawing upon his vast collection of
photos, videos, articles, letters and
personal correspondence, the Max M.
Fisher Archives now offers a fascinat-
ing interactive journey through his life
and times at www.maxmfisher.org .
The website, The Max M. Fisher

Archives — The Story of a Respected
Leader, The Legacy of a World Citizen,
was designed and developed by Tim
Songer and the creative team of
Interactive Knowledge in Charlotte,
N.C. It draws upon the documents in
the archives; the manuscript of Peter
Golden, author of The Quiet Diplomat,
The Biography of Max Fisher; and
comprehensive interviews conducted
by John Owens of the Mort Crim
Company in preparation for a full-
length documentary about the life and
times of Max M. Fisher. Consultation
and archival assistance was provided
by the Max M. and Marjorie S. Fisher
Foundation, which funded the website
as a private commission; the Jewish
Federation of Metropolitan Detroit;
and the Leonard N. Simons Jewish
Community Archives.
Speaking on behalf of the Fisher
family, Jane F Sherman, chair of
the Max M. & Marjorie S. Fisher
Foundation, said, "The website hon-
oring Max Fisher is a true capture of
his life, both communally and phil-
anthropically. This website will give

96 years.
• An online resource center that

In addition, Kaddish will be said during the daily minyan.

Former Israeli Prime Minister David
Ben-Gurion and Max Fisher, 1972

everyone a chance not only to learn
about my dad, but to understand why
and what he did for the Jewish people
and the world in general. It will give
future generations a chance to under-
stand and emulate his actions:'
Sharon Alterman, director of the
Leonard N. Simons Jewish Community
Archives, said, "Max Fisher has left us
a legacy of his monumental achieve-
ments. The foundation that he and his
wife, Marjorie, have established car-
ries forward his philanthropic vision
through humanitarian works.
"His collection of documents recent-
ly was put on deposit at the Reuther
Library of Labor and Urban Affairs on
the campus of Wayne State University
in Detroit, where the Max M. Fisher
Archives already is gaining the atten-
tion of academics and scholars:'
Federation CEO Scott Kaufman said,
"To those who knew him, Max was the
ultimate Jewish leader and, to this day,
he is our standard bearer for tzedakah
(Jewish responsibility) and tikkun
olam (repairing the world). Overseeing
the website in its development was like
watching a house being built. It was a
thrilling process to see his story unfold
and come to life. And now it's a gift
that we all can visit and share:' ❑
