Cleveland Names Public School for Jew for First Time

Alfred A. Benesch, Cleveland civic leader and philanthropist, has become the first Jew to have his name given to a Cleveland public school, and the first man to be so honored here in his lifetime. The Cleveland Board of Education, which he served as a member and president for many years, has renamed the Outwaith School, which he attended as a boy, to Alfred A. Benesch School.
