Memorable Manitobans: J. Samuel Perlman (?-?)


He was Night Sports Editor of the Manitoba Free Press and, in 1928, became Editor and Publisher of the Winnipeg Sports and Turf Digest. He served as President of the Young Men’s Hebrew Association and was active in several civic organizations in Winnipeg. He moved to New York City where he was Editor and Publisher of the Morning Telegraph and Daily Racing Form. In 1960, he was inducted into the Manitoba Order of the Buffalo Hunt. He was later appointed Steward of the Manitoba Horse Racing Commission and helped to establish the Manitoba Thoroughbreeders Association.
