    Barney Medintz was born in London, England in 1910.  At the age of 1 year he immigrated with his family to America.  Following graduation from the University of Chicago he moved to Atlanta to serve as director of Men’s and Boy’s activities at the Jewish Educational Alliance.  Medintz worked for the Alliance for two years.  On leaving, he founded the Service Uniform Company.  In 1936 Medintz married Dorothy Davis.  Medintz was active in a variety of youth and humanitarian causes in the Jewish community of Atlanta. The papers consist primarily speeches delivered by Barney Medintz on the wide variety of Jewish community causes in which he was involved. The speeches give insight into the depth of Barney Medintz’s commitment to Jewish causes and concerns as well as the social service priorities of the Atlanta Jewish community throughout the 1950s.
