Biographical/Historical Note:  Joe Saul was a young married man when the Kaiser’s troops marched into his native Lithuania in 1914. He and his family fled to Russia and settled in Minsk where he worked as a cloth buyer. Eventually, he worked his way into Siberia with the idea to immigrate to America. On New Year’s Day, 1918, he finally landed in San Francisco with hundreds of other refugees. His sister, Mrs. Ida Golden lived in Atlanta, so Joe settled in Atlanta where he established a small dry goods store. He soon sent for his wife and children still in Russia. His business, Saul’s Department Store became a landmark of 30 years in Marietta. He was a member of Ahavath Achim Congregation.

Scope and Content:  Researchers studying the Milton Saul Family Papers will gain insight into Jewish life in Atlanta, Georgia, during the 20th century. All material is arranged in alphabetical order by subject and chronologically within each folder.
