Biographical/Historical note

Simon Gratz (1840-1925) was among the most recognized and respected Jewish Americans in the city of Philadelphia. He was born into one of the oldest families and, perhaps, most notable. He inherited a legacy of high ambition and accomplishment going back to the family’s early settlers in the United States—Barnard and Michael Gratz. The Gratz Brothers were most enterprising in shipping, land acquisition, and trading, which allowed for the cementing of the strong and influential relationship between the family and the city. Simon’s father, Edward Gratz, was known for his activities with the construction of the Pennsylvania Railroad, and his most famous aunt, Rebecca Gratz, for her “charm” and philanthropy.

Gratz completed his primary education before the age of 13 and then entered the University of Pennsylvania. Graduating at 16, he then entered the university’s law school. While still a law student, he joined the law office of Garrick Mallery and Furman Sheppard. After graduating in 1855 and being admitted to bar, he began practicing in the city. For three years he served as assistant city solicitor, which enabled him to practice before the Supreme Court of the United States. He was elected to the Pennsylvania legislature before the age of 21 and served one term.

In 1869 Gratz was appointed to the Philadelphia Board of Public Education and became chairman of the Committee for the Girl’s Normal School. Additionally, he served for two terms as the board’s president pro-tem. He was most known however for helping to improve many schools that were seen as “primitive.” He also served as president of the Board of Revision of Taxes, president of the Board of Trustees of the Free Library of Philadelphia, member of the Board of Trustees of the Jefferson Medical College, and vice-president of The Historical Society of Pennsylvania and president of its council.

To distract himself from his professional commitments, Simon Gratz sought “intellectual amusement” through autograph collecting, becoming one of several popular autograph collectors during his time. He started collecting at the age of 17. Gratz in his A Book About Autograph Collecting stated that collecting “is good for the body, as well as the mind,” and to achieve fulfillment through such practices one must “seek occasional relief from the tedium and cares of active professional or business life, by turning to one chosen hobby for relaxation and quiet pleasure.” He used his collection to connect with some of the revered personalities in the United States and abroad, which ultimately supplied him with a great deal of entry points in the study of history. It is through the famed individual, according to Gratz, that we have the greatest opportunity to study:

"the collecting of autographs appeals most strongly to those who seek a delightful relaxation in an eminently intellectual amusement. An autograph letter from the hand of a noted man is the closest personal memorial of him that can be had. Here we have the identical paper that his hands touched and on which he wrote the words we read—words expressing thoughts as they emanated from his brain. We almost feel as if we were in direct contact with the writer. If he was good as well as great, a feeling of reverence for the paper we treasure steals over us. We are moved by the desire to learn the leading events of his life; and, if he was a prominent character in history, we wish to know the historical events in which he was a participant. In this way our treasured personal memorial leads us into the field of intellectual activitiey and history research" (p. 14-15).

His collecting activities led to his lengthy association with the Historical Society of Pennsylvania, to which he would deed all of his collection in 1917. This collection reflects much of his philosophy of leisure and collecting. There are many types of documents contained with the collection with a range of people and organizations represented. Gratz had a reputation for collecting internationally. H etraded items with many individuals from around the world, and many of the documents in the collection are written in French, Italian, Russian, or Chinese.

Gratz’s contemporaries in the collecting and dealing of autographs and other artifacts included Walter R. Benjamin, George Briley, Georg M. Cannaroe, Louis J. Cist, Ferdinand J. Dreer, Thomas Addis Emmet, Frank M. Etting, Adrian H. Joline, James T. Mitchell, and Charles Roberts, A. S. W. Rosenbach. With these men and other collectors, Gratz entered a long debate about what constituted genuine collecting practices and what determined the value of autographs. This conversation commenced as autograph collecting increased in popularity and historical documents rose in market value. According to Gratz, many people became “collectors” who “beg[ed] signature,” increasing their stocks by requesting autographs. Objecting to such methods for enriching his store.” He lamented the transition of autograph collecting from a recreational practice to a full-fledged business. He asserted, “from the beginning of the taste for gathering autographs, most of the notable collections have been formed by men of education, refinement, and prominence; and, as a natural consequence, the ways they have followed in pursuing their hobby have been such as were in complete accord with the highest standards of propriety. Their acquisitions, prior to the time when the commerce in autographs commenced, were almost exclusively by the gift of masses of letters and manuscripts which has accumulated, for many generations, in the archives of families of ancient or noble lineage. When, in the early part of the 18th century, a large and steady increase in the number of collectors began to manifest itself, a legitimate business in the purchase, gift, or exchange, of the names they wanted. At a later day, a number of men from whom better things might have been expected, resorted to methods which, in varying degrees, were discreditable.” Much of his displeasure may have been inspired by an increase in the sale of fraudulent documents at suchtions. During one auction he was publicly corrected by Walter R. Benjamin regarding an item that Gratz thought to be authentic, but that was actually a fake.

By the time of his resignation from the board of the Historical Society of Pennsylvania, he had amassed an expansive collection, all of which was donated to the organization. He resigned on May 10, 1921, having served more than 51 years consecutively. After his death in 1925, the school board decided to honor him with the naming of a school—the Simon Gratz High School.
