An American Experience: Adeline Moses Loeb and Her Early American Jewish Ancestors
Sons of the Revolution in the State of New York, 2009
Distributed by Syracuse University Press
John L. Loeb, Jr., Kathy L. Plotkin, Margaret Loeb Kempner, and Judith E. Endelman
With an introduction by Eli N. Evans
A lavishly produced tribute to a fascinating matriarch of an important southern Jewish family. Adeline's story exemplifies the "our crowd" world of Jewish American aristocracy, which was so influential in the social and economic history of the United States.
"A model for genealogists, a gift to historians, and a treasure for anyone who loves American portraiture, this magnificently-produced volume sets a new standard for family history. It reveals much not only about John L. Loeb Jr., Adeline Moses Loeb, and the ancestors who shaped them, but also about the American Jewish experience as a whole, from its early colonial beginnings."
