Anna Ginsberg Hayutin Textiles and Other Material
Anna Ginsberg was born in 1893 to East European immigrants D'vera and Max Ginsberg, who had settled in New York City in the late 19th century. Anna Ginsberg completed high school in New York and moved to Denver shortly thereafter, in 1910. She lived with her family on Denver's west side, where they were actively involved in the orthodox immigrant Jewish community. In 1912 she married Morris Hayutin, who was the son of Russian Jewish immigrants and the owner of the Western Supply Company (he would later own Public Industrial Bank). Anna and Morris Hayutin had three children: Peryle (1915-2006), Irving, and Arthur. The collection contains household and personal items, early to mid-20th century, that belonged to Anna Ginsberg Hayutin. Most of the textiles in the collection were created by Anna herself and include a large number of table linens, bed linens, and doilies. Women's hats also feature prominently in the collection, and other items include collars, an ivory woman's toiletry set, women's jewelry, a jewelry box, three photo lapel pins, Anna's high school graduation autograph album, and a dictionary.
