ISIDOR TEITELBAUM - One man's mastery of business created the large furniture and house furnishing establishment
of Isidor Teitelbaum in The Bronx Borough in the short span of a few years. Mr. Teitelbaum was born in Vienna,
Austria, November 15, 1883. His father, Jacob Louis Teitelbaum, died in 1903, and his mother, Fannie Teitelbaum,
The family migrated to the United States when Isidor Teitelbaum was in his seventh year. He was educated at Public
School No. 34, in New York City. In 1903 he engaged in the second hand furniture business at No. 452 Westchester
Avenue, The Bronx, and as his business grew several changes of base were necessary before he found the present
convenient site which he has occupied since 1909. Among other gradual changes has been the change in character
of his business. The second hand furniture business has given way to the highest grade of house and hotel furnishings.
The high character of Mr. Teitelbaum both among his business and social associates is disclosed by the interests
outside of his business which share his attention. He is vice president and a director of the Society for the Prevention
of Cruelty to Children, and a director in The Bronx Hospital. He is a trustee and Past Grand Lodge officer of the
Grand Lodge, Free and Accepted Masons, State of New York; a Past Master of his lodge, and a director of the Jewish
philanthropic societies. He is a member of the Fennemore Country Club, the Rutgers Club of Manhattan, and the Progress
Club. He is a director in the No. 340 West Fifty seventh Street Corporation; the Hotel de France; the Glenmore
Apartment Hotel Company, Incorporated; the I & S Company, Incorporated; the Congress Hotel, Incorporated; the
Tego Realty Company, Incorporated; the Jador Realty Company, Incorporated; and the Capitol Apartment Hotel Company,
Mr. Teitelbaum was married, on January 10, 1910, in New York City, to Sara Seiler. They are the parents of Rita
Teitelbaum, born in 1916; and of Jay Lloyd Teitelbaum, born in 1921. The business address of Mr. Teitelbaum is
No. 446 Westchester Avenue, The Bronx, New York City.
