Arbitrator, mediator, and impartial chairman.

Dr. Paul Abelson (Ph.D., Columbia, 1906; LL.B., New York Law School, 1918) was a prominent lawyer and arbitrator in New York City and made substantial intellectual and social contributions to the Jewish community in that city. A co-founder of the Madison House Settlement (1899), Abelson devoted the early part of his career to Jewish welfare work, including immigrant education. He also edited the ENGLISH-YIDDISH ENCYCLOPEDIA DICTIONARY (1912), served as the director of the Bureau of Industry of Kehillah and was head of the adult immigrant department and evening summer school of the Educational Alliance.

Abelson's work as an arbitrator and mediator began in 1911 when he was appointed a member of the conciliation staff under the Protocol Arbitration Plan of the Cloak and Suit Industry. He subsequently served as secretary of the Board of Moderators in the men's clothing trade (1915-1916); served as special arbitrator for the paper box industry (1924); established the arbitration machinery for the hosiery industry in New York City (1929-1931); was appointed an administration member under the National Recovery Administration for seven apparel codes; and was impartial chairman for the fur industry (1914-1939), millinery and cap trade (1915-1938), New York Jewish baking industry (1932-?), New York City suitcase trade (1935-1937), New York City jewelry trade (1936-?), ladies' handbag industry (1937-1941), children's dress trade (1937-1941), New York toy industry (1935-?) and the New York knit goods industry (1939-?). Abelson also served as a public panel member of the National War Labor Board during World War II.
