Mattie Rotenberg

Mattie Rotenberg

For Mattie Rotenberg, the first woman and the first Jew to be granted a doctorate in physics at the University of Toronto, family relationships always took precedence over career. She founded Toronto’s first Jewish day school to educate her five children and later embarked upon a second career as a journalist.
