1Title:  Abe M. Luntz Family Photographs     
 Creator:  Luntz, Abe M. Family 
 Dates:  1870-1995 
 Abstract:  The Luntz Family came to prominence in Canton, Ohio, through the scrap metal industry. Samuel and Rebecca (Wolf) Luntz were Polish Jewish immigrants. Samuel founded the Canton Iron and Metal Company in 1898. Two of his sons, Darwin and Abe, founded their own scrap metal firm in 1916, The Luntz Iron and Steel Company, due to the growing need for scrap with the onset of World War I. Both Darwin and Abe were very involved in civic and community activities. Abe Luntz married Fanny Teplansky on October 10, 1916 in Canton, Ohio. They had five children. The family moved to Cleveland in 1939 for business purposes as well as for more varied religious, musical, and educational opportunities. The majority of the photographs included here pertain to Abe M. Luntz, his wife Fanny (Teplansky), their children, Robert, Richard, Joan, William, and Theodore, and their ancestors, both Luntz and Teplansky. The collection consists of 297 black and white/sepia photographs, 57 color photographs, and one color transparency.
