Goldmark family.

Hide Profile

Joseph Goldmark (1818-1881), Hungarian-born physician whose hobby was chemistry, came to America in 1849, shortly after presenting his discovery of red phosphorous to the Convention of Hungarian Physicians and Naturalists. A revolutionist in his youth, his political opinions forced Goldmark to leave his country with Louis Kossuth. While developing the Brooklyn factory of Goldmark and Conried, he continued to be active in politics during the rest of his life. He amassed a great deal of property to leave to his large family, which included daughters Helen (wife of Felix Adler, founder and Director of the Society for Ethical Culture), Pauline (early feminist and horticultural scholar), and Alice (wife of Judge Louis Brandeis). Joseph Goldmark's brother Carl Goldmark was a composer and music teacher in Vienna.
