Lord Mayor of London Sir Henry Isaacs, Alderman & Sheriff Mr Knill and Sheriff Mr Harris.
 
 
  • ISAACS, SIR HENRY AARON:
    By : Joseph Jacobs & Goodman Lipkind

    Former Lord Mayor of London; born in that city Aug. 15, 1830. For a quarter of a century he labored in the best interests of the city of London. He agitated for improving the dwellings of the poor, and was mainly instrumental in bringing about much-needed reforms in the finance committee of the corporation. In 1859 he was appointed to the chairmanship of the City Lands Committee. Some years later, as head of the Markets Committee, he gave valuable evidence before the House of Commons; and the Tower Bridge owed its existence, in a great measure, to his persistence. Upon the oral system of teaching deafmutes, his brochure "Sounds Versus Signs" is a recognized authority.

    In 1887 Isaacs became sheriff of London and Middlesex, and was knighted in the same year. In 1889 he was elected Lord Mayor of London. He has published "Memoirs of My Mayoralty."

    The Jewish Encyclopedia
  • Isaacs, Sir Henry Aaron (1830-1909)

    Citizen and Lord Mayor was born in the City of London on 15 August 1830, the son of Michael Isaacs and Sara de Mendoza, daughter great granddaughter of Aaron de Mendoza of Madrid, a relative of Daniel Mendoza the champion boxer, while an uncle nephew was Rufus Isaacs, the eminent lawyer. Henry Aaron married Eleanor Rowland (d. 1901). They had one son and two daughters, while at least one was born deaf and dumb. As a leading City trader and a Liberal he was elected as a Common Councillor in 1862, at the age of 32 in the ward of Aldgate, and Alderman in Portsoken in 1883, taking a special interest in markets. In 1886 he was Sheriff, in 1887 he was made a Knight, and in 1889 Lord Mayor. This was a year clouded by errors of judgement, at least according to popular opinion,

    His rise through the civic ranks was largely a result of his activities in the City’s civil society. For example, he was Master of the Loriners’ Company, Warden of the Hambro Synagogue, member of the Jewish Board of Guardians, Grand Warden of the Freemasons’, Drury Lane Lodge, and member of the Alliance Lodge, as well as involvement in Bottomley’s Hansard Union and the construction of Tower Bridge, completed in 1894. He died on 2 August 1909, aged 79.

    • Rufus Daniel Isaacs, 1st Marquess of Reading (10 October 1860 - 30 December 1935) was a British politician and jurist. A prosperous lawyer, Isaacs entered the Commons as a Liberal in 1904, and went on to serve as Solicitor-General and Attorney-General in the governments of Sir Henry Campbell-Bannerman and Herbert Henry Asquith, becoming the first Attorney-General to sit in the Cabinet in 1912. In 1913, Isaacs was made Lord Chief Justice, a position in which he served until 1921. He was raised to the peerage as Lord Reading of Erleigh in 1914, and continued to rise to the peerage, being made a Viscount in 1916 and an Earl in 1917. In 1918, he was appointed Ambassador to the United States, a position in which he served until 1919, while continuing at the same time as Lord Chief Justice.


    Cartoon of Rufus Daniel Isaacs from "Vanity Fair"
    • In 1921, he resigned the chief justiceship to become Viceroy of India. Although Reading preferred a conciliatory policy, he ended up using force on several occasions, and imprisoned Mahatma Gandhi in 1922. On his return in 1926, he was advanced to a Marquess. In MacDonald's coalition government in 1931, he briefly served as Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs, but resigned after a few months due to ill-health.

      Reading rose higher in the peerage than any other Jew in British history.

      The Marquess holds the subsidiary titles of Earl of Reading (1917), Viscount Reading, of Erleigh in the County of Berkshire (1916), Viscount Erleigh, of Erleigh in the County of Berkshire (1917), and Baron Reading, of Erleigh in the County of Berkshire (1914).


    • Alice Edith Cohen Isaacs, Birth: 1866, Death: Jan. 30, 1930

      Marchioness of Reading, G.B.E., C.I. She was the first wife of Rufus Isaacs, 1st Marquess of Reading, and the daughter of Albert Cohen, a merchant in the City of London. She became Baroness Reading on Rufus' ennoblement in 1914, Viscountess Reading in 1916, the Countess of Reading in 1917, and finally the Marchioness of Reading in 1926. In 1921, Lord Reading was appointed Viceroy of India. She accompanied him to India and, despite continuing poor health, served prominently as Viceregal Consort. She also threw herself into charitable work, particularly with Indian women and children. She established the Women of India Fund in 1921 and National Baby Week in 1923, as well as supporting many existing charities. In 1926 she campaigned to construct a standard hospital in Peshawar, in place of Agerton Hospital. The new hospital was subsequently named as Lady Reading Hospital. She later returned to England with her husband, and was appointed Dame Grand Cross of the Order of the British Empire (GBE) in the 1920 civilian war honours and Companion of the Order of the Crown of India (CI) in March 1921, the latter being a traditional honour for the Viceregal Consort. She was awarded the Kaiser-i-Hind Medal in gold in 1924.


    • Stella Isaacs founded and was chairman of the Women's Voluntary Service (WVS), known as of 1966 as Women's Royal Voluntary Service (WRVS). Her father was a member of the British Foreign Service. After being educated in Europe, Stella Charnaud joined the staff of the Viceregal Lodge in Delhi, India, where she served as secretary to the wife of the new Viceroy, Rufus Isaacs, the Earl (later the 1st Marquess of Reading). After he was widowed she married the Viceroy herself in 1930.

      They returned to England, where Stella Isaacs, now the Marchioness of Reading, became increasingly active in voluntary social work and with the Personal Service League, created to serve the needy and unemployed. Lady Reading became chairman of the League, and then a Magistrate.

      Stella was invested as a Dame Commander, Order of the British Empire (D.B.E.) in 1941, as a Dame Grand Cross, Order of the British Empire (G.B.E.) in 1944. She was a Governor of the BBC between 1946 and 1951. She was decorated with the award of Grand Officer, Order of Orange of Nassau in 1952 and with the award of Dame of Grace, Most Venerable Order of the Hospital of St. John of Jerusalem (D.St.J.) in 1957. She was created Baroness Swanborough, of Swanborough in the County of Sussex [U.K. Life Peer] on 22 September 1958.

      She died on 22 May 1971 at age 77.

    Guglielmo Marconi and Godfrey C. Isaacs


    Blue plaque at the Marconi Building, New Street, Chelmsford, Essex, England

    Godfrey C. Isaacs became the joint Managing-Director with Guglielmo Marconi in January 1910, and took over completely that August. After two years of financial crisis for the Company, Marconi's Wireless Telegraphy Company paid its first dividend that September. In October, Issacs formed 'The Marconi Press Agency Ltd', a subsidiary, which in 1911 produced the world's first wireless magazine, The Marconigraph (later renamed The Wireless World in April 1913.) Having studied at European universities, Isaacs was, like Marconi, multi-lingual, international in outlook, and determined not only to enforce the Company's patents but to bring its exhausting commercial war with Telefunken to an end. This he achieved in 1912 - the year he ordered a custom-built factory in Chelmsford, moved head office to Marconi House, and, with his brother, the Attorney-General, Sir Rufus Isaacs, was falsely accused of share-profiteering in the alleged `Marconi Scandal'. Godfrey Isaacs continued to run the company until February 1925, when ill health, brought on by overwork and another financial crisis, forced his retirement. He died that April, aged 58.

    Gerald was the son of Rufus Isaacs, 1st Marquess of Reading, and Alice Edith Cohen. He was educated at Rugby School and Balliol College, Oxford. He served in the First World War, winning the MC and reaching the rank of Lieutenant Colonel.

    He succeeded his father as second Marquess of Reading in 1935. When the Conservatives came to power in 1951 under Winston Churchill, he was appointed Joint Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs, a post he held until 1953, when he was promoted to Minister of State for Foreign Affairs and admitted to the Privy Council. He retained this position also when Sir Anthony Eden became Prime Minister in 1955. However, Reading was not included in the administration formed by Harold Macmillan in January 1957 and never returned to ministerial office. Apart from his political career he was also a Bencher and Treasurer of the Middle Temple and an Honorary Colonel in the Inns of Court Regiment from 1947 to 1959.

    Lord Reading married the Hon. Eva Violet Mond, daughter of Alfred Moritz Mond, 1st Baron Melchett, in 1914. He died in September 1960, aged 70, and was succeeded in his titles by his son Michael. The Marchioness of Reading died in 1973.


    Lady Eva Violet Mond Isaacs, née Melchett, Marchioness of Reading, was born into one remarkable family and married into another. She occupied a unique place in Anglo-Jewry; as Vice President of the World Jewish Congress and President of its British section she was an eloquent and vocal supporter of the Zionist cause and the young state of Israel.

    Eva’s mother Violet, née Goetz, was a strict Anglican of Huguenot origin; her father Alfred Mond (1868–1930) was Jewish, the son of the German-born chemist Ludwig Mond (1839–1909), who invented the alloy nickel and founded the Brunner Mond Company, which merged into ICI in 1926. The Monds lived in the affluent area of St. John’s Wood in London. Alfred and Violet were married in church in 1892 and moved to Lowndes Square in Chelsea. Violet was musical and artistic, and the house was filled with remarkable works of art, including paintings by Mantegna and Bellini. She organized extraordinary parties; her guests included Princess Helena Victoria and Sir Thomas Beecham was invited to conduct the music.

    Eva was born in August 1895. Her early years were filled with comforts, governesses and holidays at her grandfather Ludwig Mond’s Palazzo Zuccari, near the Spanish Steps in Rome. Her education followed the traditional lines of a wealthy young girl of her era; in her early years she was taught at home by a governess, before being sent to Miss Wolff’s, in South Audley Street, and then to boarding school at Northlands at Englefield Green. At seventeen she was sent to finishing school in Paris and a year later, in 1913, she was sent for a year to finishing school in Munich.

    Just before leaving for Munich, Eva joined her family on a holiday to Scotland. It was there that she met Gerald Isaacs (1889–1960), the elder son of Sir Rufus Isaacs (1860–1935), then Attorney General in Asquith’s Liberal government. Alfred Mond was also a Liberal, although by 1926 he had broken with the Liberal party in protest at the Land Policy, and joined the Conservatives. A close friend of Chaim Weizmann, Mond increasingly focused his political energies on Zionist activities.

    The following summer Alfred Mond rented Palace Court at Beaulieu from Lord Montagu and invited Gerald to stay, where the courting continued. A church wedding was planned after Eva’s “coming out” in 1914 (she was presented at Court in May) but with the outbreak of war the wedding was postponed. Just before the wedding the Archbishop of Canterbury refused to authorise a Church wedding between Eva, a practising Christian, and Gerald, a Jew. After a civil ceremony the marriage was blessed in Holy Trinity Church, Sloane Street.

    (From "Mond Isaacs, Eva Violet, Second Marchioness of Reading" by Natasha Lehrer )

    Her father was Sir Alfred Mond, 1st. Baron Melchett of Lanford

    • Solly Zuckerman, Baron Zuckerman of Burnham Thorpe (1904-1993): Born in Cape Town, South Africa, Zuckerman completed his medical studies in England, and whilst teaching anatomy at University College London pursued research into primate behaviour at London Zoo.

      His wartime career began in 1939 with experimental studies of concussion and ended with a 'post-mortem' analysis of the Combined Bomber Offensive. In 1943, Zuckerman was awarded Fellowship of the Royal Society, and in 1945 he took up the post of Professor of Anatomy at Birmingham University.

      In 1960, Zuckerman was appointed Chief Scientific Adviser (CSA) to the Ministry of Defence, and from 1965 until his retirement in 1971, he was CSA to successive British governments.

      Zuckerman remained busy after retirement, as President of the Zoological Society of London, as a campaigner against the nuclear arms race, and as a promoter of environmental research.
