Biographical History   David Michael Bronstein was born in the Ukraine in 1880 and learned the tailoring trade from his father. He immigrated to the United States in 1900 and found work making ladies' clothing in Boston. In 1907, Bronstein moved to Berkeley, California, where he operated a tailoring business that served some of Berkeley's most prominent men. He opened his first shop on Allston Way and then became an associate of the firm Nish and McNeil. In the 1920s, Bronstein established a partnership with local tailor Fred Miller. He married Riva Felix of San Francisco in 1911 and together they had three daughters. similar items
