The Last Anglo-Jewish Gentleman - Redcliffe Nathan Salaman (1874-1955)
by Todd M Endelman (Professor Emeritus of History and Judaic Studies at the University of Michigan)
The communal hegemony of the Anglo-Jewish notability collapsed in the mid-twentieth century. One of its last representative figures was Redcliffe Nathan Salaman - plant geneticist, country gentleman, social historian of the potato and Zionist. Salaman witnessed and acutely observed its demise, as well as the larger transformation of British Jewry in the twentieth century.
