Together, they had at least one son, Morris (1896-1970). Morris Horovitz served in the United States Navy during World War I, and later founded the Savannah Barber Supply Company (later Savannah Barber and Beauty Supply Company) in the 1920s, and married Rose Brooks of Savannah, with whom he had two sons, Edward “Buddy” Horovitz (1922-2005) and Arthur “Bubba” Horovitz (b. 1923). Buddy and Bubba graduated from Savannah High School and later took over the family business. The family were all members of Congregation B’nai B’rith Jacob synagogue.

Scope and Content:  Various papers from the Horovitz family of Savannah, Georgia. Of particular interest is the high school scrapbook of Arthur “Bubba” Horovitz, which mostly chronicles his track and field and cross-country running career.
