Biographical Notes

Robert B. Wolf

Robert B. Wolf was born on August 18, 1914 in Montgomery County, Pennsylvania.  He graduated from Haverford College in 1936 and received his J.D. from Harvard Law School in 1939.  During World War II, Wolf served in the U.S. Army and was assigned to the International Military Tribunal (IMT) trials at Nuremberg, where he gathered witnesses for the prosecution. 

Upon his return to the United States, Wolf pursued his interests in government reform and housing issues.  In 1950 he served as a draftsman on Philadelphia’s Home Rule Charter, and in 1951 he ran – unsuccessfully – for City Council.  He was a founding Director of the Greater Philadelphia Movement and chairman of the city’s Coordinated Housing Improvement Program (CHIP).  In 1956, he served in the Eisenhower Administration as General Counsel of the Federal Housing Association (FHA).

From 1939 to 1985, Wolf was a partner at Wolf, Block, Schorr and Solis-Cohen, the legal firm founded by his father, Morris Wolf.  Following his retirement from the firm in 1985, Wolf directed his efforts towards juvenile justice reform.  He served as a Director and Vice President for Government Liaison of the Citizens Crime Commission of Philadelphia (CCC), and was appointed to the Juvenile Advisory Committee of the Pennsylvania Commission on Crime and Delinquency (PCCD).  Wolf also served as chairman of the Youth Services Coordinating Commission (YSCC) in Philadelphia and was appointed as a master to review and report on the city’s Youth Study Center (YSC).  In addition to his involvement with a number of juvenile justice organizations at both the state and local levels, Wolf served on the boards of the Eastern Division of the Pennsylvania Economy League (PEL) and the Schools of Social Work at the University of Pennsylvania and the University of Southern California.  He also taught courses in urban housing at Haverford College and Temple University.

Robert B. Wolf married Elinor Kemper in 1936 and they had two children, Virginia and Edwin (Ned).  They later divorced and Wolf married Caryl Lofquist in 1972.  Robert B. Wolf passed away on March 25, 2005, at the age of 90.

Morris Wolf

Morris Wolf was born in Philadelphia in 1883.  He attended William Penn Charter and later graduated from the University of Pennsylvania Law School.  Upon graduation, Wolf and Horace Stern formed a law partnership that evolved into Wolf, Block, Schorr and Solis-Cohen.  Morris Wolf served as Philadelphia District Attorney, Deputy Attorney General of Pennsylvania, and General Counsel for the Foreign Operations Administration (FOA) in Washington, D.C.  In 1919, he traveled to France as a captain with the Red Cross.  Wolf served on the Board of Directors of numerous organizations, and was a trustee of the University of Pennsylvania, the Philadelphia Art Museum, Albert Einstein Medical Center, and the Stephen Girard Estate.  He also served as President of the Federation of Jewish Agencies and Vice President of the YM-YWHA Branch of the Jewish Ys and Centers.  Morris Wolf was married four times and had two children, Robert and Edwin Wolf II.
