Funeral services will be held here Tuesday at Temple Emanu-EI for Paul Felix Warburg, a member of the prominent Jewish family of financiers and philanthropists, who died in New York yesterday at the age of 61.

A son of the late Felix M. Warburg, founder and first president of the Federation of Jewish Philanthropies of Greater New York, Paul F. Warburg was one of the Federation’s active leaders for many years and was credited with having led in developing the Federation’s highly-successful fund-raising methods, according to Irving M. Flet, president of the Federation. He was also on the board of trustees of the Jewish Board of Guardians and a founder of the Federation’s Employment and Guidance Services.

Among Felix Warburg’s survivors are a brother, Edward M.M. Warburg, chairman of the American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee; and two sisters, Mrs. Robert W. Sarnoff, wife of the chairman of the board of the National Broadcasting Company; and Mrs. Walter N. Rothschild.
