SUBJECT: life and activities of Leon Chasanovitch (Kasriel Shub) 1882-1925

I am collecting material on the life and work of Leon Chasanovitch, a 
Poale Zion leader, Jewish journalist and publicist in German and Yiddish; 
latterly a representative of ORT in Eastern Europe.

Please can you contribute to the following:-

1) Details of archives where material can be found (Israel, Europe, USA, 
Canada, Argentina)

2) Newspaper articles and interviews with or by Chasanovitch

3) References in books, articles, academic publications etc.

4) Personal contacts, links, family connections

5) Personal knowledge or sources

The eventual purpose is a publication and listing of comprehensive 
materials and sources towards biographical and political studies of this 
man's work and influence.

Thanks in advance.
