He was born in 1868 in Iasi, Romania.

His father was a Gemorah teacher, a well-read person, who drove out the young M. from their home after he was found to have actors as friends.

His stage career began together with Zeydl Helman, after he went to act with Axelrad; later he played with various troupes, and in 1912 he immigrated to America.

Here M. played in the theatre and vaudeville in New York and in the province, and for one year was the manager-director for the Actor's Union, Local 5.

On 26 July 1925 M. passed away from paralysis in New York, and he came to his eternal rest at Mount Hebron Cemetery [in Flushing, Queens, New York, ed.]


M. E. from Zeydl Helman.
