Biographical / Historical

William Wolford (Wolfie) Bromberg was born on October 10, 1917 in Atlanta, Georgia to Aron and Ester Shafran Bromberg. He graduated from the school now known as Georgia State University and later married Miriam Ceydell Epstein (1918-1991) from Milwaukee. Together they had two children and were members of the Ahavath Achim Synagogue. Wolfie worked as a retail store owner and realtor, while also being a very active volunteer in his community. (Legacy.com) During the 1970s, Wolfie Bromberg was extremely involved in the Atlanta chapter of the Jewish Veterans Association. The JVA was formed after the U.S. Civil War to stand up for the rights of Jewish Veterans. While Wolfie was involved with the group, he accumulated several scrapbooks on their activist and charitable activities such as blood drives, scholarships, luncheons and hospital work. He died in Atlanta in 2004.
