The Gussie K. Singer City of Hope Collection consists of tribute books, newsletters, certificates, and other papers, including a 1971 tribute book honoring Harry Bronstein.
Founded in 1912 as the National Jewish Consumptive Relief Association of Southern California, in tents in Duarte, CA, the
City of Hope offered treatment and services as a sanatorium for tubercular patients of any religious or ethnic background.
Local chapters were started across the country to help raise funds for the hospital. The Gussie K. Singer Chapter #4 of the
City of Hope was founded in 1928 as the Jewish Consumptive Relief Association of San Diego. It was the second chapter formed,
and is the oldest chapter still in existence.
