"The Pioneer Jews"

America is the Melting Pot of the world. It has grown because of the creativity and vision of many groups - notably Jews. The focus of this work is to spotlight a few of those dedicated Jews who were instrumental to the development of the American.

JOSEPHINE SARAH MARCUS EARP  1860-1944

Josephine Sarah Marcus Earp
24" High - 110 Lbs.

The first lady Pioneer, Josephine Sarah Marcus Earp  -the wife of the renowned Wyatt Earp - was an actress in a time when theater was enjoyed only by the wealthy. Josephine brought the stage to the prairies, giving all her audiences a place to dream and hide in thought -just for a brief moment.

 


LEVI STRAUSS 1829-1902

Levi Strauss, the second Pioneer Jew to join this elite group, was the entrepreneur for the masses. He devised a style that, to this day, bears his name.
