"To the podcast Holly frying, and I'm Tracy V. Wilson, and Today's episode was requested approximately 100 years ago. If you go by way of hyperbole by her listener, other not really 100 years ago, but it feels that way. It was a very long time and I have had it on my list throughout that time, But I am only just now getting to it for a variety of reasons. We're talking today about Levi Strauss and his story is really historically interesting because it touches on a lot of important moments in U. S history, So he was an immigrant who ended up in a business that was impacted. Bye and in turn affected the U. S Civil war and American clothing culture. He Has a story that's tied to the gold rush. He also had a vision for his adopted city of San Francisco that he worked really hard to achieve so that future generations would benefit from it. On his life in many ways is the story of the United States in the 19th century. From the perspective of a Jewish immigrant who became a captain of industry before we get into his story, I will make a confession. Which is that until fairly recently, probably five years, Ichigo. I thought Levi and Strauss were two different people that have been in business together, saying so. Clearly. I missed this in history class because even though people wear Levi's and you'd call it Levi Strauss, I didn't realize that was one person's proper name. So I grew up in North Carolina. Not all that far away from Cohn Mills, which is who made the denim for Levi's 50 ones for About 200 years or something So like this is a piece of history that is like I'm a little more steeped in. I didn't have confusion about whether Levi and Strauss for two people. It's not my proudest moment. But in my defense, even though I am a clothes person. I don't think I owned a pair of jeans of any flavor from about 1985 until, like, two years ago, like that's just never been my things, So that's my excuse. Paltry, though it may be that I just never examined Levi Strauss. If it makes you feel better, I thought Hanna Barbera was one person warming. Oh, no, that'd be funny, But no. So Levi was born Lube Strauss on February 26 of 18 29 in Booty Time Germany. His father, Hirsch Strauss, was a salesman who sold household goods store the door. Mother's name was Rebecca Haas, Strauss, and both she and her. She grew up in Franconia. It's an area in the north of modern day Bavaria, which was predominantly Jewish. Rebecca was. Hirsch is second wife. His first wife metal. Bowman. Strauss, had died at the age of 35 leaving him with five Children. Then Hirsch and Rebecca had two more Children together a daughter and then lube. And Hirsch, Rebecca and their seven Children lived in a three room downstairs floor of a two story house. So this was a time when Bavaria's Udine addict, or Julia was in effect that had started in the 18 teens in this law. Seemed as though it offered Jewish citizens the opportunity to pursue a number of jobs that had once been forbidden to them. But in return, it also created really strict regulations for their lives among them. Marriage and immigration of New Jews was severely limited. All Jews had to be registered. They had to take German names. They could not own land, and even their language was codified so all public records had to be kept in German. They could not use Hebrew for those Someone like her. Strauss, who traveled through the area. Selling his wares also served as messengers and his community connectors during this time, and in this profession curse was sort of exempted from a part of the union edict. Working as a peddler, which had been a traditional job for Jewish men in the area for a long time was no longer considered unacceptable career. But older people like Hearst, who weren't able to pick up a new profession were allowed to keep doing it. Yeah, it was expected that they would just eventually die off. And so would that profession. And all of the limitations of the union. A dicked eventually inspired immigration. One of the marriage laws that really created a problem was that only the eldest son of any Jewish household could get married. And so there were some work arounds like if another son that was younger, wanted to marry a widow that was acceptable or if a couple that had no Children wanted to give up the slot there. Alison would have had to another family so they could have two sons, Mary they could, but basically this really limited The entire societal culture because all of these young women could not get married. All of these young men could not get married. It was frustrating, so eventually they wanted to leave. In an 18 37 There was a group of 18 people that left 18 young people and two of loves. Older siblings were part of that they left Germany. To make homes in London and New York. In 1940 in 1941 2 more of the straws. Children followed suit in 18 46 purse died of tuberculosis. Rebecca remarried soon after two persons brother he was a widower named Lippman. Lippman died just a few weeks after the wedding was 17 at that time, and two of his sisters were still living at home. An immigration at this point was not easy. You couldn't just pick up and leave the Bavarian government had to approve anyone who wished to leave the country. And you had to prove that neither you nor anyone in your family had any sort of criminal record and that you could afford to make the trip. On March 17th 18 47 Rebecca Strauss filed an immigration petition in which he stated that because she was a widow, she didn't have the financial support anymore. She didn't know how she would provide for her youngest son. She had Children in the United States who could help her get felled there. Liv was old enoughto work and contribute to the family's finances. Once they arrived, and for.

It was a very long time and I have had it on my list throughout that time but I am only just now getting to it. For a variety of reasons We are talking today about Levi Strauss and historians really historically interesting because it touches on a lot of important moments in US history so he was an immigrant who ended up in a business that was impacted by and in turn affected the US civil war and including culture. He has a story that's tied to the Goldrush. She also had a vision for his adopted city of San Francisco that he worked really hard to achieve so that future generations would benefit from it And his life in many ways is the story of the United States in the nineteenth century from the perspective of Jewish Immigrant. Who became a captain of industry before we get into his story? I will make a confession. Which is that until fairly recently. Probably five years. This Chicago I thought Levi Strauss. Were two different people that have been business together a saying so clearly. I miss this in history class. Because even though people wear Levi's in you'd call it Levi Strauss. I didn't realize that was one person's proper name so I grew up in North Carolina. Not all that far away from cone mills. Which is who made the denim for Levi's five a lens for two hundred years or something so like this is a piece of history that is like a more steeped in. I didn't have confusion about whether Levi Strauss where two people. It's not my proudest moment. But in my defense even though I am a close person. I don't think I owned a pair of jeans of any flavor from about nineteen eighty five until like two years ago. Like that's just never been my things. So That's that's my excuse poultry. Though it may be that I just never examined Levi Strauss. Fit makes you feel better. I thought Hanna Barbera was one person with a woman. Oh No that'd be funny but no so Levi was born Lube Strauss on February twenty six of eighteen twenty nine in Britain Germany. His Father Hirsch Strauss was a salesman who sold household goods store door. This mother's name was Rebecca Haas Strauss. And both she and her screw up in Franconia. It's an area in the north of Modern Day Bavaria which was predominantly Jewish. Rebecca was her second wife. His first wife Mabel Bouwmans Strauss had died at the age of thirty five leaving him with five children then Hirsch and Rebecca had more children together a daughter and then lube and Hirsch Rebecca and their seven children lived in a three room downstairs floor of a two story house. So this was the time when Bavaria's udon addict or July was in effect that had started in the eighteen teens. In this law seemed as though it offered Jewish citizens the opportunity to pursue a number of jobs that had once been forbidden to them but in return it also created really strict regulations for their lives among them marriage and immigration of Jews was severely limited all Jews had to be registered. They had to take German names. They could not own land and even their language was codified so all public records had to be kept in. German. They could not use Hebrew for those someone like her Strauss who traveled through the area selling his wares also served as messengers and his community. Connector's during this time and in this profession Kirsch was sort of did from part of the. You'd need it working as a peddler which had been a traditional job. Jewish men in the area for a long time was no longer considered an acceptable career but older people like Hirsch. Who weren't able to pick up a new profession. Were allowed to keep doing it. Yeah it was expected that they would just eventually die off and so would that profession and all of the limitations of the Union. Edict eventually inspired immigration One of the marriage laws. That really created a problem was the only the eldest son of any Jewish household could get married and so there were some work arounds like if a another son that was younger wanted to marry a widow that was acceptable. Or if a couple that had no children wanted to give up the slot their eldest son would have had to another family so they can have two sons Mary. They could but basically this really limited the entire societal culture because these young women could not get married. All of these young men could not get married. It was frustrating so eventually they wanted to leave in eighteen thirty seven. There was a group of eighteen people that left eighteen young people and to of loves older siblings. Were part of that. They left Germany to make homes in London and New York in nineteen forty and nineteen forty one to more of the straws children followed suit in eighteen. Forty six hirsch died of this. Rebecca remarried soon after two curses brother. Who was a widower named? Lipman but libman died just a few weeks after the wedding. Loeb was seventeen at that time and see if his sister were still living at home. An immigration at this point was not easy. You couldn't just pick up and leave. The Bavarian government had to approve anyone who wished to leave the country. And you had to prove that neither you nor anyone in your family had any sort of criminal record and that you could afford to make the trip on March seventeenth eighteenth. Forty-seven Rebecca Strauss filed an immigration petition in which he stated that because she was a widow. She didn't have the financial support anymore. She didn't know how she would provide for her youngest son but she had children in the United States. Who can help her get settled? There Lube was old enough to work and contribute to the family's finances once they arrived and for his part Lube his own petition stating quote. No members of my family will stay behind. I will share the fate that has been assigned to me with them in foreign lands. I thus join my mother and her plea on June twenty sixth eighteen forty seven rebecca and her children so lab and his two sisters were approved for immigration. But they didn't leave immediately because Rebecca needed to make sure that the family that had gone on to New York had indeed made preparations for the three of them to arrive and live there. They finally made their way in the spring of eighteen. Forty eight although the specifics of their transatlantic passage aren't really documented or known. Jonas Ann Lewis Strauss. Libs brothers had both become dry goods merchants in the city. They'd open up a shop at three ninety three and a half grand street but by the time the family arrived they had moved to a more lucrative location at two three and a half. Division street may lived above the shop. Jonas had also gotten married and started his own family. And at some point Followed the example that his siblings had any changed his name to a more Americanized version. This was not uncommon In in the eighteen fifty cents as he is listed as Levi with a why he also started working in the family dry goods business while he was there. He learned English really quickly so that he could speak with business partners and customers and he applied for U. S. citizenship justice. His brothers had done before him. The Strauss's dry goods business was doing really well. They moved to another new location near Union market in eighteen fifty one and as their family businesses growing in new opportunity was making itself apparent across the country as the California gold rush foster new towns new prosperity and a need for dry goods. The Strauss brothers did not want to miss a chance to capitalize on this new market but they also needed to keep their established New York business going and so the youngest brother of the family was sent West five days after he took his oath of citizenship on January. Thirty first. Eighteen fifty three loop Strauss. Who was now going by Levi left New York for San Francisco aboard the US? Mail ship Georgia which was a steamer and the family had already loaded shipment of merchandise aboard another ship called the winged racer for Levi to take possession of once he reached San Francisco. The clipper winged racer was sailing down around the tip of South America and the North California leave. I would make the trip less time. Traveling through Panama was of course before the Panama Canal was built so he took the steamer Georgia to Panama and then traveled across thin strip of the country to Panama City on the Pacific side. He got on another steamer. They're called the isthmus. And that was bound for San Francisco. He arrived in San Francisco on March thirteenth. Eighteen fifty three. This was considered for a lot of people. Safer plan than trying to travel overland from New York to San Francisco because People often did not survive that journey or if they did get California they got there in pretty sorry shape This was a little bit of an easier. Booze and the specifics of Levi's first days in San Francisco are also unknown. He would have needed to rent warehouse space for the goods that were coming in the the winged racer and he would have needed to find lodgings for himself. He most likely had some letters of introduction to family connections. That had already made that journey west so it wasn't as though he just showed up and had to figure everything out by himself. He had some security net in place. That merchandise that had been shipped showed up two weeks. After Lebai dead on March thirtieth unlike other merchants you had to bid on merchandise that was shipped on Spec once it got to the port at San Francisco Levi knew what was coming he just had to inspect it. Accept it and then move it into the warehouse as he got to know the market in California he can ensure that future shipments contain items. That would be the most likely to move to make the most money and for clarity. Strauss's we're not opening a retail shop San Francisco. Even though they had sort of a similar one in New York they were basically setting up a wholesale business that would sell stock to other merchants for their shops. So leave I had to invest time in developing really good relationships with other businessmen in the area and he was twenty four at this point. He wasn't supporting a wife or family. So aside from attending synagogue and participating in social events primarily with San Francisco's Jewish community. All of his efforts could be.

"Podcast. I'm Holly and I'm Tracy v. Wilson, we're talking today about Levi Strauss, and historians really historically interesting because it touches on a lot of important moments in US history. So he was an immigrant who ended up in a business that was impacted by and intern affected. The US civil war and American clothing culture. He has a story that's tied to the goldrush. He also had a vision for his adopted city of San Francisco that he worked really hard to achieve to the future generations would benefit from it. And his life in many ways, is the story of United States in the nineteenth century from the perspective of Jewish immigrant who became a captain of industry before we get into his story, I will make a confession, but just that until fairly recently, probably five years ago. I thought Levi Strauss were two different people that have been a business together. So clearly I missed this in history class, because even though people wear Levi's and you'd call it Levi, Strauss. I didn't realize that was one person's proper name. So I grew up in North Carolina not all that far away from cone, mills, which is, who made the denim for Levi's five for bud. Two hundred years or something? So like this is a piece of history. That is like, I'm a little more speed it. I didn't have confusion about whether Levi, Strauss. It's not my proudest moment. But in my defense even though I am a clothes person. I don't think I owned a pair of jeans of any flavor from about nineteen eighty five until, like two years ago. Like that's just never been my things. So, that's, that's my excuse. Poultry though, it may be that I just never examined Levi, Strauss fit makes you feel better. I thought Hanna Barbera was one person. Oh now that'd be funny, but no so Levi was born loop Strauss on February twenty six eighteen twenty nine in Britain. Germany, his father, her Strauss was a salesman who sold household goods store door, mother's name was Rebecca Haas Strauss, and both she and her screw up in Franconia. It's an area in the north of modern day Bavaria, which was predominantly Jewish. Rebecca was her second wife, his first wife made Bahman Strauss had died at the age of thirty five leaving him with five children. Then Hirsch and Rebecca had two more children together a daughter, and then live and Hirsch, Rebecca and their seven children lived in a three room downstairs floor of a two storey house. So this was a time when Bavaria's udon addict, or July was in effect that had started in eighteen teens in this law seemed as though it offered Jewish citizens the opportunity to pursue. A number of jobs that had once been forbidden to them. But in return, it also created really strict regulations for their lives among them, marriage and immigration of new Jews was severely limited all Jews had to be registered. They had to take German names. They could not only land, and even their language was codified. So all public records to be kept in German. They cannot use Hebrew for those someone like her Strauss who traveled through the area, selling his wares, also served as messengers his community Connector's during this time. And in this profession, Kirsch was sort of exempted from part of the unique working as a peddler, which had been a traditional job for Jewish men in the area for a long time was no longer considered an acceptable career, but older people like Hearst who weren't able to pick up a new profession were allowed to keep doing it. Yeah, it was expected that they would just eventually die off. And so would that profession and all of the limitations of the udon aid, eventually, inspired immigration, one of the marriage laws that really created a problem was it only the eldest son of any Jewish household could get married. And so there were some work arounds, like if a nother son that was younger wanted to marry a widow that was acceptable, or if a couple that had no children wanted to give up the slot, there, Ellison would have had to another family, so they have two sons Mary, they could. But basically, this really limited the entire societal culture, because all of these young women could not get married. All of these young men could not get married. It was frustrating, so they wanted to leave in eighteen thirty seven there was a group of eighteen people that left eighteen young people in two of loves older siblings were part of that they left Germany to make homes in London and New York. In nineteen forty and nineteen forty one to more of the stress children, followed suit in eighteen forty six I died of tuberculosis Rebecca remarried soon after two purses, brother, he was a widower named Lipman, but Lipman died just a few weeks after the wedding was seventeen at that time and his sisters were still living at home. An immigration at this point was not easy. You couldn't just pick up and leave the very in government had to approve anyone who wished to leave the country. And you had to prove that, neither you nor anyone in your family at any sort of criminal record, and that you could afford to make the trip on March seventeenth eighteenth forty-seven, Rebecca Strauss filed an immigration petition in which he stated that because she was a widow, she didn't have the financial support anymore. She didn't know how she would provide for her youngest son, but she had children in the United States who can help her get settled. There live was old enough to work and contribute to the family's finances. Once they are. Arrived, and for his part Lou his own petition stating, quote, no members of my family will stay behind. I will share the faith that has been assigned to me with them and foreign lands either. Join my mother and her plea on June twenty six eighteen forty-seven Rebecca and her children, so love and his two sisters were approved for immigration, but they didn't leave immediately because Rebecca needed to make sure that the family that had gone on to New York Hanan deed, made preparations for the three of them to arrive and live there. They finally made their way in the spring of eighteen forty eight although the specifics of their transatlantic passage aren't really documented, or known Jonas and Lewis Strauss. Libs brothers had become dry goods merchants in the city. They'd open up shop at three ninety three and a half grand street. But by the time the family arrive, they had moved to a more lucrative location at two three and a half division street. They lived above the shop. Jonas had also gotten married and started his own family. And at some point love followed the example, that his siblings had any changed his name to a more, Americanized version. This was not uncommon in the eighteen fifty cents is he is listed as Levi with a why he also started working in the family dry goods business while he was there. He learned English really quickly so that he could speak with business partners and customers, and he applied for US citizenship Justice his brothers had done before him. The stresses strike goods business was doing really well, they moved to another new location near union market in eighteen fifty one and as their family business was growing, and you opportunity was making itself apparent across the country as the California gold, rush foster new towns, new prosperity and a need for dry goods, the Strauss brothers, did not want to miss chance to capitalize on this new market, but they also needed to keep their established New York business going. And so the youngest brother of the family was sent west five. Days after he took his oath of citizenship on January thirty first eighteen fifty three love, Strauss, who was now going by Levi left New York for San Francisco aboard the US mail ship, Georgia, which was a steamer and the family had already loaded shipment of merchandise. Aboard another ship called the winged racer for Levi to take possession of once. He reached San Francisco. The clipper, winged racer was sailing down around the tip of South America, and then north to California leave. I would make the trip in less time, traveling through Panama was, of course before the Panama Canal was built. So he took the steamer Georgia to Panama, and then traveled across thin strip of the country to Panama City on the Pacific side got on another steamer. They're called the isthmus, and that was bound for San Francisco. He arrived in San Francisco on March thirteenth eighteen fifty three. This was considered a lot of people safer plan than trying to travel overland from New York to San Francisco because. People often did not survive that journey, or if they did get California. They got there in pretty sorry shape. This is a little bit of an easier booth. And the specifics of Levi's first days in San Francisco are also unknown. He would have needed to rent warehouse space for the goods that were coming in on the winged racer 'em. He would have needed to find lodgings for himself. He most likely had some letters of introduction to family connections that had already made that journey west. So it wasn't as though he just showed up and had to figure everything out by himself. He had some security net in place that merchandise that had been shipped showed up two weeks after leave dead on March thirtieth. Unlike other merchants, you had to bid on merchandise that was shipped on spec. Once it got to the port at San Francisco Levi knew what was coming. He just had to inspect it accept it..

So clearly I missed this in history class, because even though people wear Levi's and you'd call it Levi, Strauss. I didn't realize that was one person's proper name. So I grew up in North Carolina not all that far away from cone, mills, which is, who made the denim for Levi's five ones for two hundred years or something. So like this is a piece of history.

I don't think I owned a pair of jeans of any flavor from about nineteen eighty five until, like two years ago. That's just never been my things. So, that's, that's my excuse. Poultry though, it may be that I just never examined Levi, Strauss fit makes you feel better. I thought Hanna Barbera was one person with a woman. Oh, no. That'd be funny. But no fellow Levi was born lube, Strauss on February twenty six eighteen twenty nine in Germany, has father her Strauss was a salesman who sold household goods store to door mother's name was Rebecca Haas Strauss, and both she and her screw up in Franconia. It's an area in the north of modern day Bavaria, which was predominantly Jewish. Rebecca with her second wife, his first wife male, Bowman Strauss had died at the age of thirty five leaving him with five children than Hurson, Rebecca had two more children together, a daughter and then lib and Hirsch, Rebecca and their seven children lived in a three room downstairs floor of a two story house.

But in return, it also created really strict regulations for their lives among them, marriage and immigration of new juice was severely limited all Jews had to be registered.

They cannot use Hebrew for those someone like her Strauss who traveled through the area, selling his wares, also served as messengers as community Connector's during this time. And in this profession, Kirsch was sort of exempted from part of the unique working as a peddler, which had been a traditional job for Jewish men in the area for a long time was no longer considered an acceptable career, but older people like Hirsch who weren't able to pick up a new profession. We're allowed to keep doing it. Yeah, it was expected that they would just eventually die off. And so would that profession and all of the limitations of the eight eventually, inspired immigration, one of the marriage laws that really created a problem with only the eldest son of any Jewish household could get married. And so there were some work arounds, like if another son that was younger wanted to marry a widow that was acceptable, or if a couple had no children wanted to give up the slot. Their Ellison would have had to another family, so they have two sons marry they could. But basically, this really limited the entire societal culture, because all of these young women could not get married. All of these young men could not get married. It was frustrating, so eventually they wanted to leave in eighteen thirty seven there was a group of eighteen people that left eighteen young people in two of loves older siblings were part of that they left Germany to make homes inland in New York. In nineteen forty and nineteen forty one to more of the Strauss, children, followed suit in eighteen forty six I died of circulates this Rebecca remarried soon after two curses brother, who was a widower named Lipman but Libman died just a few weeks after the wedding was seventeen at that time.

But basically, this really limited the entire societal culture. Because all of these young women could not get married. All of these young men could not get married. It was frustrating. So they wanted to leave in eighteen thirty seven. There was a group of eighteen people that left eighteen young people in two of loves older siblings were part of that they left Germany to make homes inland in New York. In nineteen forty and nineteen forty one to more of the stress. Children followed suit in eighteen forty six. I died of tuberculosis Rebecca remarried soon after two curses brother who was a widower named Lipman. But Lipman died a few weeks after the wedding was seventeen at that time and see his sisters were still living at home an immigration at this point was not easy. You couldn't just pick up and leave the verion government had to approve anyone who wished to leave the country, and you had to prove that neither you nor anyone in your family at any sort of criminal record. And that you could afford to make the trip on March seventeenth eighteenth forty-seven, Rebecca Strauss filed an immigration petition in which she stated that because she was a widow. She didn't have the financial support anymore.

I this join my mother and her plea June twenty six eighteen forty-seven, Rebecca and her children. So love and his two sisters were approved for immigration, but they didn't leave immediately because Rebecca needed to make sure that the family that had gone on to New York and indeed made preparations for the three of them to arrive and live there they finally made their way in the spring of eighteen forty eight although the specifics of their transatlantic passage aren't really documented or known Jonas and Lewis Strauss lives. Brothers had both become dry goods merchants in the city. They'd open up a shop at three ninety three and a half grand street. But by the time, the family arrived. They had moved to a more lucrative location at two three and a half division street. They lived about the shop Jonas also gotten married and started his own family. And at some point love followed. The example that his siblings had any changed his name to a more Americanized version. This was not uncommon in the eighteen fifty cents is he is listed as Levi with a why he also started working in the family dry goods business while he was there he learned English really quickly. So that he could speak with business partners and customers and he applied for US citizenship. Justice his brothers had done before him the stresses strike. It's business was doing really, well, they moved to another new location near union market in eighteen fifty one and their family business was growing in the upper tune was making itself apparent across the country as the California gold rush foster new towns, new prosperity and need for dry goods. The Strauss brothers did not want to miss a chance to capitalize on this new market, but they also needed to keep their established New York business going and so the youngest brother of the family was sent west five. Days after he took his oath of citizenship on January thirty first eighteen fifty three lip Strauss. Who was now going by Levi left New York for San Francisco aboard the US mail ship Georgia, which was a steamer and the family had already loaded shipment of merchandise aboard another ship called the winged racer for Levi to take possession of once? He reached San Francisco the clipper winged racer was sailing down around the tip of South America. And then north to California leave I would make the trip in less time traveling through Panama was, of course, before the Panama Canal was built so he took the steamer Georgia to Panama, and then traveled across that thin strip of the country to Panama City on the Pacific side. He got on another steamer, they're called the isthmus. And that was bound for San Francisco. He arrived in San Francisco on March thirteenth eighteen fifty three. This was considered for a lot of people safer plan than trying to travel overland from New York to San Francisco because. People often do not survive that journey or if they did get California. They got there in pretty sorry shape. This was a little bit of an easier booth and the specifics of Levi's first days in San Francisco are also unknown. He would have needed to rent warehouse space for the goods that were coming in on the winged racer 'em. He would have needed to find lodgings for himself. He most likely had some letters of introduction to family connections that had already made that journey west. So it wasn't as though he just showed up and had to figure everything out by himself. He had some security net in place that merchandise that had been shipped showed up two weeks after Lee did on March thirtieth. Unlike other merchants had to bid on merchandise that was shipped on spec. Once it got to the port at San Francisco leave I knew what was coming. He just had to inspect it.

"And welcome to the podcast. I'm holly. And I'm Tracy v. Wilson we are talking today about Levi, Strauss and historians really historically interesting because it touches on a lot of important moments in US history. So he was an immigrant who ended up in a business that was impacted by an intern affected, the US, civil war and American clothing culture. He has a story that's tied to the goldrush. He also had a vision for his adopted city of San Francisco that he worked really hard to achieve. So that future generations would benefit from it. And his life. In many ways is the story of the United States in the nineteenth century from the perspective of Jewish immigrant who became a captain of industry before we get into his story. I will make a confession which is that until fairly recently probably five years ago. I thought Levi Strauss for two different people that have been a business together. So clearly I missed this in history class because even though people wear Levi's, and you'd call it Levi Strauss, I didn't realize that was one person's proper name. So I grew up in North Carolina. Not all that far away from cone mills which is who made the denim for Levi's five months for two hundred years or something. So like, this is a piece of history that is like, I'm a little more speed it, I didn't have confusion about whether Levi Strauss for two people. It's not my proudest moment. But in my defense, even though I am a close person. I don't think I owned a pair of jeans of any flavor from about nineteen eighty five until like two years ago. Like, that's just never been my things. So that's that's my excuse poultry, though, it may be that. I just never examined Levi Strauss fit makes you feel better. I thought Hanna Barbera was one person. Oh now, that'd be funny. But no so Levi was born loop Strauss on February twenty six eighteen twenty nine in Britain, Germany has father her Strauss was a salesman who sold household goods store door mother's name was Rebecca Haas Strauss. And both she and her screw up in Franconia. It's an area in the north of modern day Bavaria, which was predominantly Jewish Rebekah was her second wife his first wife male Bowman Strauss had died at the age of thirty five leaving him with five children. Then Hirsch and Rebecca had two more children's together a daughter, and then live and Hirsch, Rebecca and their seven children lived in a three room downstairs floor of a two story house. So this was a time when Bavaria's udon addict or July was in effect that had started in eighteen teens in this law seemed as though it offered Jewish citizens the. Opportunity to pursue a number of jobs that had once been forbidden to them. But in return, it also created really strict regulations for their lives among them, marriage and immigration of new Jews was severely limited. All Jews had to be registered. They had to take German names, they could not own land. And even their language was codified. So all public records had to be kept in German. They cannot use Hebrew for those someone like her Strauss who traveled through the area selling his wares. Also served as messengers and his community Connector's during this time. And in this profession Kirsch was third of exempted from part of the you'd need it working as a peddler which had been a traditional job for tuition men in the area for a long time was no longer considered acceptable career, but older people like Hirsch who weren't able to pick up a new profession were allowed to keep doing it. Yeah. It was expected that they would just eventually die off. And so would that profession and all of the limitations of the Yudin eight eventually inspired immigration, one of the marriage laws that really created? A problem was only the eldest son of any Jewish household could get married, and so there were some work arounds, like if another son that was younger wanted to marry a widow that was acceptable. Or if a couple that had no children wanted to give up the slot there. Ellison would have had to another family. So they could have two sons Mary they could. But basically, this really limited the entire societal culture. Because all of these young women could not get married. All of these young men could not get married. It was frustrating. So even surely they wanted to leave in eighteen thirty seven. There was a group of eighteen people that left eighteen young people in two of loves older siblings were part of that they left Germany to make homes in London and New York in nineteen forty and nineteen forty one. Two more of the stress. Children followed suit in eighteen forty six Hirsch died of tuberculosis, Rebecca remarried, soon after two hearses brother who was a widower named Lipman, but Lipman died just a few weeks after the wedding live with seventeen at that time and see his sisters were still living at home an immigration at this point was not easy.

"Ready for hurricane Florence what it's going to do to our area. We'll chat with him about that. Seven forty five. We have John trout meteorologist with further. Details on this form eight oh, five saga and jetty. White House correspondent for the daily caller in at eight thirty five this morning. Dr Sebastian Gorka. Good morning. I'm Vince counties alongside Mary Walter good morning. Big day today. It is September eleven it is also the day that Bob Woodward has decided to release his new book called fear, and we got a preview of it. The Washington Post was given a preview of it from that. We know that he attributes quotes to Defense Secretary James Mattis weight has chief of staff, John Kelly and others, and they came out, and they denied making these quotes about the president saying the president was unfit and they were worried about there's there's hints of the twenty fifth amendment. And how are they have to talk him out of doing certain things, and they they have denied that was. So we know that that happened last week when this the preview first came out they denied tonight, they'd say no well Bob Woodward on the today show on Monday. Said was asked about their denials, and he came out and said that they are lying. He said, they are not telling the truth. These are political statements to protect their jobs pretty big to be accusing to four-star marine generals of being liars. That's that's the position Bob Woodward's now. Right. But when you think about this writing a book that you attribute to people, and they have no way they have to prove a negative. Prove you didn't say this. How do you prove you didn't say something they can't they can't prove they didn't say something? Right. So this is a he said he said, and he it's a brilliant strategy Bob Lugar, because we'll never know if it's truth or not at all this is in my humble opinion, the purpose of all of this is just too. So the seed of doubt in the mind of the American people and to kind of reinforce the narrative that the left has been putting out since the day, he won the election. He's unfit. He's in collusion with the Russians. He's of Vladimir Putin is whipping boy now all those things think of all the things that they just keep piling up and piling up and piling up. And then you get someone like Bob Woodward. Everyone knows the name. Famous journalist comes out with this explosive book with these explosive comments about what's going on in a White House that we keep being told his chaotic anada control, and you know, the country's at state. Well, he come out with this. And then he says, well, they're lying. Well, now, who do you believe it's all too? So that seed of doubt. That's what this is all about I think. Yeah. Yeah. Well, I mean, look, I think there's Woodward's a bit of a curiosity because. I can tell you in Washington and broadly across the country. There's sort of a credulity that comes with if Bob Woodward says it he's probably being responsible about it. Right. Because he got Watergate and going forward and he's written. I think what seventeen books since then he's written a lot of books and a lot of a lot. And they're good books. They're enjoyable reads people enjoy reading about the drama, these ministrations, and they've often been viewed with the with the with the lens of well, this is a credible account of what's really going on and Bob. So so for that reason, I think people say, okay, there must be some truth to this that makes it very different than say, the Michael Wolfe book where is just coming around and being like well knows of his true. But these are basically what these people are saying. But what? And and you worry though that the Woodward book is animated by sort of the same principle, but without the zany Michael Wolff explanation, which is that you have people just making allegations that could potentially be skirl us. But who knows they sent them out? Loud. So it was good enough to write it down. I put it in the book. Yeah. There you talk about how people look at Bob Woodward, so credible. Yes. Well, Peter Harrison in the daily caller actually talks about some issues where maybe he is. He may have embellished the truth a little bit some dubious claims or was otherwise misleading and he talks I about Bob Woodward's, former editor at the Washington Post, Ben bradlee who was very publicly complimentary of his of his reporter. All right. But apparently, he privately doubted, some of the more dramatic elements of all the president's men of. And we saw the movie we saw about the potted plant that was how he communicated with deep throat. Well, Bradley, his former editor apparently told his former assistant at the post Jeff him Amon that he had some doubts about some of the things that Bob Woodward reported that supposedly happened to get how he contacted his source how he communicated with deep throat who was his source. Other was a scene where he places. A flag in a pot plant on his balcony. And that was how he award he he communicated with deep so they could meet up and Bradley Sichuan assistant in one thousand nine hundred interview that he had originally tended to use for memoir, but it remained private until then his assistant him published. The book, you know, I have a little problem with deep throat potted plant incident ever happened and meeting in some garage when meeting in the garage fifty million the garage, I don't know how many meetings in the garage. There's a residual fear in my soul that isn't quite right. Wow. Bradley. I mean, this guy legendary. Yeah. And and he questions the work of his reporter, Bob Woodward. He's like, I don't know if that's all true. Might be embellished. A bit says, Ben bradlee and Hillman says that Woodward and burns Woodward tried to pressure him into removing the damaging information for the book because he was fearful for the truth coming out. That's what and asserts. They also talk about another source known as z and for decades, a both both writers not just Karl burns. Bob Woodward, Bernstein, have insisted that the grand jurors that they contacted had given them no information. But according to a memo. They that it didn't appear to be true. That z was a grand juror in disguise in an apparently broken the law by talking and Woodward and Bernstein had always denied it as recently as twenty eleven in the book, they describe this Z as someone quote in a position to have considerable knowledge of the secret activities of the White House and the committee to re elect the president, and they quote Z saying my boss called it. A white watch whitewash now Hillman says that's misleading for two reasons. The first half of the quote, which Woodward and Bernstein left out was and he the boss doesn't even have the facts at the second half of the quote, whereby boss calls it a whitewash. Will it continued? And he doesn't even have the facts. So that was left out and other also alleging that what Z's boss thought about the case was far less relevant. If her day job wasn't directly related to the Nixon administration. If she was Jewish. She had nothing to do with the Nixon administration. Now, that's how you get on the jury. So in other words, they were they were if if it was a grand juror who was the source. They weren't just concealing the source. They were lying about the source. They're saying what is alleged. Yeah. Okay. I'm with you. So, you know, again, you know, Bob Woodward because of Watergate as you pointed out has this veneer of untouchability that if Bob Woodward says something, then it must be true. But if you look back there are if you actually do a little digging as Peter Harrison, did you look back that may not necessarily be the whole story. Well, there's there's this this exchange that you mentioned Peter Harrison in this great report on the questions about Woodward's credibility. There's this exchange James Rosen, formerly the Fox News reporter, he obtained his nineteen Ninety-two phone transcript that showed remember the former New York Times reporter side Hirsch, Rebecca. He said the following in Hurst me to believe that he meaning Bob Woodward is in my bleeping profession. And he he went on to basically challenges his credibility said, basically, it's an embarrassment that Woodward has even considered appear in journalism. So there's there's a whole bunch of this. I should point out. We're asking about the credibility questions right now. And this is because Peter Hansen wrote this great piece, but also every time Woodward has come out with a book, the sees that he's written about have come out with gone after him the Obama presidency did the same move. They went out and said, well, wait a second. There's all these credibility questions in Woodward's pass, which in just reflects the way believe all this stuff. The same people who were saying that when the book came out about Obama not saying now as it comes out about Trump. Yeah. Very interesting five fifteen on WMA L. Let's make that six fifteen thirteen team. Now,.

Hello and welcome to the podcast. I'm Holly fry and I'm Tracy v Wilson. An today's episode was requested approximately one hundred years ago if you go by way of hyperbole by early scenario, other not really one hundred years ago, but it feels that way. It was a very long time and I have had it on my list throughout that time, but I am only just now getting to it for a variety of reasons. We are talking today about Levi Strauss and historians really historically interesting because it touches on a lot of important moments in US history. So he was an immigrant who ended up in a business that was impacted by and intern affected the US civil war and American clothing culture. He has a story that's tied to the goldrush. She also had a vision for his adopted city of San Francisco that he worked really hard to achieve. So the future generations would benefit from it in his life. In many ways is the story of the United States in the nineteenth century from the perspective of Jew. Jewish immigrant who became a captain of industry before we get into his story. I will make a confession which is that until fairly recently. Probably five years ago. I thought Levi, Strauss were two different people that have been a business together saying. So clearly I missed this in history class because even though people wear Levi's and you'd call it Levi Strauss, I didn't realize that was one person's proper name. So I grew up in North Carolina, not all that far away from cone mills, which is who made the denim for Levi's five for. Two hundred years or something. So like this is a piece of history that is like, I'm a little more steeped in. I didn't have confusion about whether Levi Strauss or two people. It's not my proudest moment, but in my defense, even though I am a clothes person, I don't think I owned a pair of jeans of any flavor from about nineteen eighty five until like two years ago. Like that's just never been my things. So that's that's my excuse poultry, though. It may be that I just never examined Levi. Strauss fit makes you feel better. I thought Hanna Barbera was one person a woman. Oh, no, that'd be funny, but no. So Levi was born lube Strauss on February twenty. Six of eighteen twenty nine in Britain. Germany has father Hirsch. Strauss was a salesman who sold household goods store door as mother's name was Rebecca Haas Strauss and both. She and her screw up in Franconia. It's an area in the north of modern day Bavaria which was predominantly Jewish. Rebecca was hearses second wife, his first wife, male Bowman. Strauss had died at the age of thirty five. Leaving him with five children. Then Hirsch and Rebecca had two more children's together, a daughter, and then lube and Hirsch, Rebecca and their seven children lived in a three room downstairs floor of a two story house. So this was a time when Bavaria's udon addict or July was in effect that had started in the eighteen teens in this law seemed as though it offered Jewish citizens, the opportunity to pursue. Number of jobs that had once been forbidden to them. But in return, it also created really strict regulations for their lives. Among them, marriage and immigration of new Jews was severely limited. All Jews had to be registered. They had to take German names. They could not own land and even their language was codified. So all public records had to be kept in German. They could not use Hebrew for those someone like her Strauss who traveled through the area selling his wares also served as messengers and his community Connector's during this time. And in this profession, Kirsch was sort of exempted from part of the, you'd need it working as a peddler which had been a traditional job for Jewish men in the area for a long time was no longer considered acceptable career. But older people like Hirsch who weren't able to pick up a new profession were allowed to keep doing it. Yeah, it was expected that they would just eventually die off. And so would that profession and all of the limitations of the udon. Edict eventually inspired immigration. One of the marriage laws that really created a problem was only the eldest son of any Jewish household could get married. And so there were some work arounds like if another son that was younger, wanted to marry a widow that was acceptable or if a couple that had no children wanted to give up the slot. There Ellison would have had to another family so they can have two sons Mary they could. But basically this really limited the entire societal culture because all of these young women could not get married. All of these young men could not get married. It was frustrating so evenly they wanted to leave in eighteen thirty seven. There was a group of eighteen people that left. Eighteen young people in two of loves. Older siblings were part of that. They left Germany to make homes in London and New York in nineteen forty and nineteen forty. One to more of the Strauss children followed suit in eighteen forty six. I died of Turkey lapsus, Rebecca, remarried soon after two. To curses brother. He was a widower named Lipman, but Lipman died just a few weeks after the wedding. Loeb was seventeen at that time and see his sisters were still living at home. An immigration at this point was not easy. You couldn't just pick up and leave the Bavarian government had to approve anyone who wished to leave the country, and you had to prove that neither you nor anyone in your family had any sort of criminal record and that you could afford to make the trip on March seventeenth eighteenth, forty-seven, Rebecca. Strauss filed an immigration petition in which he stated that because she was a widow, she didn't have the financial support anymore. She didn't know how she would provide for her youngest son, but she had children in the United States who can help her get settled. There. Lube was
