Download PDF for this date

An autograph album which was the studio register of the late Sir Moses Ezekiel, sculptor, of Rome, Italy, has just been presented to the Hebrew Orphan Asylum, by the estate of the sculptor, one of whose best known groups, the Jesse Seligman Memorial, stands in the entrance hall of the Orphanage.

The memorial was unveiled on April 23, 1896. Prior to that time, visitors of distinction viewed in it the studio in Rome. Among the names registered in the notebook are those of Cardinal de Hohenlohe, a close friend of Sir Moses and of Franz Liszt; Minnie hauk, the opera singer; Sgambati, the pianist-composer, and numerous painters, sculptors and musicians all well known at the time. There is also a registration of the officers, speakers and guests at the unveiling in New York.
