Robbie Terman was born in Detroit, Michigan. Her childhood was filled with tales about the glory days of Detroit and its active Jewish community. Now she gets to live that history as the director of the Leonard N. Simons Jewish Community Archives of the Jewish Federation of Metropolitan Detroit. She has a master’s degree in Library and Information Science with a certification in Archival Administration from Wayne State University. As an archivist, she strives to bring recognition to stories forgotten by time.
The year Blanche Hart was born, the United States celebrated its 100th birthday. The telephone was patented, Mark Twain published The Adventures of Tom Sawyer, and the Transcontinental Express train traveled from New York City to San Francisco in just 83 hours and 39 minutes.
