Nedwick, Jerrold, 1895-1966 : Jerry Nedwick Papers, 1918-1928

Jerrold (Jerry) Nedwick (1895?-1966) was a Chicago native who owned and operated Nedwick’s Book Store for over forty years. He married Rhoda Katz in 1925 and wrote to her almost daily during her two extended stays at sanatoriums, one in Winfield, Illinois, the other in Denver, Colorado. Both Jerry and Rhoda were originally from Illinois and active in the Chicago Jewish and literary communities. This collection is mostly his letters to her about his life while she was away, and contains no letters from her. It mentions popular locations such as the Palace Hotel, the Sherman House, and the Dill Pickle Club, as well as their personal friends and family affairs.
