BIOGRAPHICAL SKETCH top

Julian Morgenstern was born in St. Francisville, Illinois, March 18, 1881, the son of Samuel and Hannah Morgenstern. During his childhood he lived in Vincennes, Indiana, Garden City, Kansas, and Cincinnati, Ohio and he received his education in the public schools of these cities. He received a B.A. Degree from the University of Cincinnati in 1901 and was ordained as Rabbi at the Hebrew Union College (H.U.C.) in 1902.

After ordination he carried on graduate work in Semitic languages at the Universities of Berlin and Heidelberg and in 1904 received the degree of Ph.D. from the latter institution. From 1904 to 1907 he served as Rabbi of Congregation Ahaveth Achim in Lafayette, Indiana. In 1907 Morgenstern was called back to Hebrew Union College as Instructor in Bible and Semitic languages. He was steadily promoted, first to the rank of Associate Professor in 1910, and then to Professor in 1913. In 1921 he was appointed Acting President and in 1922 President of Hebrew Union College. He was the first native-born American and alumnus of Hebrew Union College to become its president.

During his presidency the number of students and faculty and the scope of the College grew markedly. New academic departments were introduced, new buildings were erected and in 1926 the College, previously a department of the Union of American Hebrew Congregations, was individually chartered. During the Hitler period a dozen European scholars were given positions at Hebrew Union College chiefly as a result of Morgenstern's efforts. In 1947 he retired and became President Emeritus, continuing to teach Bible at the College until 1960 when moved to Macon, Georgia.

Morgenstern was also active as a scholar in the fields of Biblical Science and the History of Religion, particularly the History of Judaism in the Biblical period. He contributed many studies to scientific journals, both American and foreign. His published books included The Doctrine of Sin in the Babylonian Religion, (1905); Amos Studies, (Vol. I), 1941; The Ark, the Ephod, and the "Tent of Meeting," (1945) and As A Mighty Stream, (1949). He served as president of both the American Oriental Society and the Society of Biblical Literature and Exegesis. He was also a Trustee of the American Schools of Oriental Research, Secretary of the Central Conference of American Rabbis, a member of the Publications Committee of the Jewish Publication Society, and held offices in other scholarly organizations.

He received honorary degrees from Hebrew Union College, the University of Cincinnati (D.H.L.), and from the Jewish Theological Seminary of America (L.H.D.). He was also an Honorary Fellow of the American Academy for Jewish Research.

In 1906 Morgenstern married Helen Thorner of Macon, Georgia. They had one daughter, Jean (Mrs. William Greenebaum). Morgenstern died in 1976 at the age of 95 in a Macon, Georgia nursing home.

SCOPE AND CONTENT NOTE top

The JULIAN MORGENSTERN PAPERS, 1900-1974, reflect the career and interests of the President of the Hebrew Union College from 1922-1947. The bulk of the collection is from the 1940's and deals with Morgenstern's activities as Hebrew Union College President as well as his work in the area of Biblical scholarship. The collection is divided into four series:

SERIES A. CORRESPONDENCE consists of twelve and one half boxes of material arranged alphabetically. The series is divided into two subseries, 1. General Correspondence, 1900-1974, and 2. Personal Correspondence, 1921-1972. The General Correspondence subseries, arranged alphabetically, is made up of Morgenstern's correspondence as President of Hebrew Union College and as a Biblical scholar. Among the subjects of importance in this subseries are the efforts to rescue European scholars from Nazi Germany by bringing them to the College and attempts to aid displaced persons and refugees during and after World War II. The Personal Correspondence subseries consists of one folder of correspondence with family members and friends which is arranged chronologically.

SERIES B. ADDRESSES, LECTURES, PRAYERS, AND SERMONS is made up of two boxes of material authored by Morgenstern and arranged alphabetically by title. The material spans the years 1915-1952 and includes addresses given at opening day exercises at Hebrew Union College, radio scripts, eulogies, and speeches given at numerous conventions.

SERIES C. MANUSCRIPTS consists of four and one half boxes of manuscripts of scholarly articles and books authored by Morgenstern. Most of the manuscripts are in the area of Biblical studies and span the years from 1902, when Morgenstern wrote his rabbinical thesis, The Doctrine of Sin in the Babylonian Religion, to articles written for the Interpreter's Dictionary of the Bible in 1958. Also included in this series are manuscripts of As a Mighty Stream (1949); Amos Studies Vol. I (1941), and The Ark, the Ephod, and the "Tent of Meeting," (1945).
