Garber Alfred OHC.JPG

Alfred Garber was born to Russian and Polish immigrants who came to the United States in the 1890s. After his father died in 1921 and his mother was sent to North Carolina to recover from tuberculosis, he was sent to the Hebrew Orphans' Home in Atlanta, along with his sister. After the death of the administrator of the home, Mr. Strauss, Alfred temporarily took over as head of the Home. Mr. Garber recalls the years he spent in the Hebrew Orphans' Home in detail. He received a scholarship from Harold Hirsch to the University of Georgia where he got a degree in accounting. In 1940 he started Young & Garber, an accounting firm, which he sold to Touche-Ross upon retirement. He was an integral member of the Atlanta Jewish community including working with the Atlanta Jewish Community Center, the Standard Club, Ahavath Achim Congregation and the Temple. He also founded the City of Hope Foundation, in memory of his son and which aids sick children.
