Durward Gerson was an Atlanta resident who was active in a variety of Jewish and general communal organizations. Durward (remembered as 'Dutch' to all who knew him) was a member of the Jewish War Veterans of the United States-Atlanta Post No. 112, the Braves 400 Club, the Fulton Lodge No. 216 of the Free and Accepted Masons and the Yaarab Shrine Temple. His most passionate association, however, was reserved for B'nai B'rith. Throughout much of the 1950s he worked as the assistant Atlanta regional director of the B'nai B'rith Youth Organization and was later an advisor to A.Z.A. Chapter 134. In the 1960s, Dutch served as secretary and then president of the Atlanta Lodge of B'nai B'rith. His participation with B'nai B'rith led to the establishment of the Dutch and Mildred Gerson Advisor Award. The collection consists primarily of local and district records of the B'nai B'rith Youth Organization and records of Amit Women - Atlanta Chapter previously known as Mizrachi Women's Organization - Atlanta Chapter. The records from B'nai B'rith reflect upon Durward Gerson's association with that organization. The Amit Women records represent Mildred Gerson's participation as a volunteer and active member of Mizrachi. Arranged in alphabetical order by subject and chronologically within each folder. Finding aid available in library.
