Warburg Was in Forefront of Leaders of Generation, Karpf Says in Eulogy

Delivering a eulogy of the late Felix M. Warburg at the National Conference of Jewish Social Welfare, Dr. Maurice J. Karpf, director of the Graduate School for Jewish Social Work, declared: “Felix Warburg exercised a tremendous influence on his generation….By setting the example, he influenced others to give of themselves and their worldly goods. But he did more than that. He created movements and organizations and took a leading part in their development. His world-wide contacts, his catholicity of interests, his untiring efforts for the civic, educational, artistic and philanthropic causes, his broad and comprehensive approach, his essential humanity, and above all, his whole-hearted self-sacrificing devotion to the welfare of his people, placed him in the forefront of the leaders of his generation.”
