Download PDF for this date

Louis E. Kirstein, vice-president of the William Filene’s Sons Company, and president of the Associated Jewish Philanthropies of Boston, has contributed $200,000 in the memory of his father, for the erection of the Edward Kirstein Memorial Library.

The new library, which was opened Thursday, is essentially for downtown business men, and was well patronized on the opening day. Because of the absence of Mr. Kirstein from the city, no dedicatory exercises took place, but it is believed that the library will be formally dedicated some time in the Fall.
