Bertram Wallace Korn was born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania on October
6, 1918 to Manuel and Blanche (Bergman) Korn. He attended the University of
Pennsylvania and Cornell University prior to earning his A.B. degree, with
honors, from the University of Cincinnati in 1936. In 1943, Korn received an
M.H.L. degree from and was ordained rabbi by the Hebrew Union College-Jewish
Institute of Religion in Cincinnati. In 1949 he earned a D.H.L. degree from
the College-Institute.

Following his ordination, Korn became rabbi at the Government Street
Temple in Mobile, Alabama. he remained there until the next year, 1944, when
he entered the U.S. Navy as a lieutenant in the chaplaincy. He served first at
Marine Corps bases in California then was assigned to the China theatre with
the 1st and 6th Marine Divisions.

Korn's entrance into the chaplaincy began a long involvement with the
military that culminated on July 1, 1975 when he was promoted to Rear Admiral
in the Chaplains Corps, U.S. Naval Reserve. He was the first Jewish chaplain
to obtain flag rank in any of the United States armed forces.

Following his return from overseas duty, Korn, in 1946, returned to HUC-JIR 
in Cincinnati to work on his doctorate and serve as assistant professor of
American Jewish history from 1948-1949.

In 1949 Korn became the senior rabbi at Reform Congregation Keneseth
Israel in Elkins Park, Pennsylvania, the same congregation where he was
confirmed. He remained there as senior rabbi until his death in 1979.

Korn remained active as a historian throughout his rabbinical career. In
1962 he was named visiting professor of American Jewish history at HUC-JIR,
New York and was named to the same position in 1970 at Dropsie University in
Philadelphia. He authored 12 books on American Jewish History, the most known
of which was his 1951 work, American Jewry and the Civil War, acclaimed as the
definitive work on the subject.

Other books by Korn include: The Jews of Mobile, Alabama, 1763-1841
(1971); Benjamin Levy: New Orleans Printer and Publisher (1961); Jews and
Negro Slavery in the Old South, 1789-1865 (1961); The American Reaction to the
Mortara Case: 1858-1859 (1957); and The Early Jews of New Orleans (1969).

Korn was also active in communal and organizational affairs. Some of his
activities included being a president of the American Historical Society, a
board member of the Federation of Jewish Agencies of Greater Philadelphia, a
member of the board of governors of the Reconstructionist Rabbinical College
in Philadelphia, a member of the President's Commission on the Observance of
the 25th Anniversary of the United Nations, and a member of the executive
board of the Central Conference of American Rabbis.

Korn received many awards and honors during his lifetime. He received
honorary degrees from Temple University, Delaware Valley College, HUC-JIR and
Dropsie University. His military awards included the China Service Medal,
American Theatre Ribbon, World War II Victory Medal, Naval Reserve Medal and
Asiatic-Pacific Campaign Medal.

Dr. Korn had two children: Judith Carole and Bertram Wallace, Jr. He died
in New Orleans, on December 11, 1979 at the age of 61.
