Biographical History   Rabbi Alvin I. Fine was born in Portland, Oregon (October 25, 1916), and served San Francisco’s Congregation Emanu-El for sixteen years (1948-1964). Prior to this, he had served as the assistant to the president of Hebrew Union College, in Cincinnati, and as a military chaplain in Shanghai, China during World War Two. After leaving Emanu-El, he became a Professor of Humanities at San Francisco State University (1965-1980). In addition to this, he served on the board of the American Civil Liberties Union; the Council of Civic Unity; the American Jewish Congress; the Human Rights Commission; and the Clergymen’s Advisory Council of the Planned Parenthood Association of San Francisco. He died on January 19, 1999. similar items
Scope and Content   The collection consists mainly of office and subject files from Fine’s office at Congregation Emanu-El (consisting primarily of correspondence and information about pastoral matters and the life cycles of members of the congregation, organizational business, and civic and human rights). Also included is information on B’nai B’rith; the Board of Rabbis; the Military Chaplains Association of United States; the San Francisco Planning and Housing Association; the San Francisco Interfaith Committee for Peace; and the United Negro College Fund. There are also files on church and state issues, on the trial of Julius and Ethel Rosenberg, and on personal matters, including a series of correspondence that he exchanged with a Jewish family that had relocated to China during the Holocaust and which later moved to Israel. A later addition to the collection includes a copy of Fine’s thesis from Reed College and items relating to his service as a military chaplain in Shanghai. similar items
