NEW YORKIANA, AMERICANA, AND OTHER BOOKS 
FROM THE LIBRARY OF JEWISH CONGRESSMAN 
LUCIUS N. LITTAUER (1859-1944), R-NEW YORK



The son of a Jewish immigrant from Breslau, Prussia, Lucius Nathan Littauer was born in Gloversville, in Upstate New York, in 1859. After earning his degree from Harvard College in 1878, he went to work in his father’s glove factory in his hometown. Under his direction, the family business became the largest manufacturer of its kind in the United States. Littauer served in the U.S. House of Representatives from 1896 to 1907, representing predominantly non-Jewish upstate constituencies and leading the important House Appropriations Committee. 

While a student at Harvard, Littauer struck up a friendship with Theodore Roosevelt and later became a political advisor to the future New York Governor and U.S. President. Later, as a Congressman, Littauer advocated legislation to liberalize the immigration laws in order to help the victims of religious persecution in Eastern Europe. 

Littauer became a committed philanthropist, providing funds for many causes related to health, social welfare, and education, and the Jewish Community. In 1925, he endowed the Nathan Littauer Chair of Judaic Studies at Harvard, the first of its kind in the nation. In addition to other charitable work, he made a large gift in 1937 to the New School for Social Research for support of its newly established University in Exile, where many distinguished refugee Jewish intellectuals and scholars found a haven to continue their teaching and research. 

Today, the Littauer Foundation, which he established, continues to support not only Jewish research, but also the building of Jewish book collection at libraries and institutions around the world.

Lucius Littauer also has the distinction of being the first college football coach in America. While at Harvard, Littauer played football and is listed as a substitute in the first ever Yale-Harvard game. An article in The H Book of Harvard Athletics notes that, "Until the fall of 1881 there were no coaches and no coaching by anyone except the captain...got Lucius N. Littauer of New York, '78, to coach our team, which he did on several occasions, a very small start on the right path..."
