Breman William OHC.JPG

William Breman has been a resident of Atlanta since 1908 and is the founder of the Breman Steel Company. He was both a participant and spectator of major Atlanta historical events including the flu epidemic of 1918, the bombing of the Temple, the civil rights movement, and the making of the moving "Driving Miss Daisy." He was a major philanthropist in all areas of Jewish communal life. With a lead gift of more than $2 million dollars, he made possible the creation of the William Breman Jewish Heritage Museum, which opened in June of 1996 and currently occupies half of the Selig Center. He married Sylvia Cecile Goldstein and had two children, James and Carol.
