Biographical history

Allan Grossman (1910-1991), politician, was born and educated in Toronto. Prior to his entry into Toronto's municipal politics in 1951 he was in the insurance business. In 1955 he won election to the Ontario Legislature as a Progressive Conservative for the Toronto riding of St. Andrew-St. Patrick, holding that seat in four subsequent elections. In 1960 he was named minister without portfolio, only the second Jewish person to be named a cabinet minister in Canada. He later served as minister of Correctional Services, Trade and Development, Revenue, and Provincial Secretary for Resource Development. Following his retirement from politics in 1975, Grossman was named chair of the Criminal Injuries Compensation Board in 1976, resigning from that post in 1985. He also served as president of the Jewish Immigrant Aid Services of Canada, president of the Toronto Lodge, B'nai B'rith, and served on the boards of several charities.
