Download PDF for this date

There will be two Jews in the 1933 Utah State Legislature when that body meets in the first week of January. Julian M. Bamberger, a son of the late Simon Bamberger, first non-Mormon to be elected Governor of Utah, will sit in the upper branch of the Legislature, the Senate.

In the lower house will be Irwin Arnovitz, an officer of the local lodge of the B’nai Brith. Mr. Arnovitz was born in Pennsylvania and is a graduate of the University of Chicago and the University of Utah.
