Max Stern, 1973

A nice new addition to the digital archives is this 1973 portrait of German-born businessman and philanthropist Max Stern. Stern rebuilt his life in Canada after anti-Semitic persecution forced him to leave his native Germany in 1926. He made his name with his founding of what would become a large pet products manufacturer and real estate development company.
