Moses Kaufman was a native of Bavaria who lived in Cincinnati, Ohio before coming to Lexington, Ky. in 1869. He founded the Kaufman Clothing Company and at various times served as Lexington city councilman, postmaster, city treasurer, city auditor and trustee of the Julius Marks Sanitorium. He was once a candidate for mayor and represented Lexington in the General Assembly  in 1896. In addition, he was instrumental in the establishment of the city's water works.  Kaufman was known as a philanthropist and Hebrew scholar. The Kaufman papers consist of scrapbooks and printed material relating to the career of Moses Kaufman. Clippings, which comprise most of the collection, deal primarily with the Lexington city council and its activities in the last quarter of the 19th century, articles on Jewish history and customs, Hebrew lore and biographical information on Kaufman. Obituaries and articles on Kaufman are included as well as many articles that he wrote for the newspaper notably his "Reminiscences" and "The Soul" which were reprinted as booklets. Kaufman's frequent and eloquent correspondence with friends and colleagues, reflecting his social and philosophical beliefs, is present, with such correspondents as Irvin S. Cobb, J. C. W. Beckham, Samuel M. Wilson, Cotton Noe, Charles Kerr, James C. Cantrill, Johnson Camden, May Collins, Helen R. Gutman and Ollie M. James. Correspondence with Cotton Noe and poems by Noe comprise a separate folder of material as well as one with miscellaneous materials and correspondence relating to Kaufman's years as Postmaster of Lexington. A typewritten history of the post office and postal service is included in the postmaster folder. Organized by scrapbooks, correspondence and subjects.
