Dr. Julius E. Sommerfield was a physician who was chief of staff at the Morris Hirsch Clinic and at the Atlanta Tuberculosis Association. He married Clara Rosenfeld, the daughter of Abraham and Emilie Baer Rosenfeld, whose wedding in 1867 encouraged the founding of the Hebrew Benevolent Congregation (the Temple), Atlanta's first congregation. The collection consists of correspondence, autograph books, newspaper articles relating to Margaret Mitchell and Gone With The Wind, postcards and year books from Technological High School. Of special interest are the autograph books which contain the signatures of a significant number of Jewish people living in Atlanta from 1879 - 1888. Arranged in alphabetical order by subject and chronologically within each folder. Finding aid available online:
