Samuel Briskman Pictures

Various pictures of Samuel Briskman. The people pictured below, and the Waldorf event, are discussed in the obituary.

The pictures were given to me by Dr. Jeffrey Briskman of Brooklyn, NY. He got them from Esther Briskman (1920) of Queens, NY, wife of Herbert Briskman (1912-1993). Herbert was son of Beila (1883-1959) who was Sam's sister. Esther was a family "bibliographer."

Clicking the web-sized pictures will bring up full-sized ones.
