Chaim Zimmerman

Aharon Chaim Zimmerman was a Ukrainian-born American Orthodox rabbi. Aharon Chaim Zimmerman was born in Ukraine, he was nephew of Rabbi Baruch Ber Lebowitz. He was known as a child prodigy; as a teenager, he studied at the Kaminetz Yeshiva headed by Baruch Ber Lebowitz. He left Russia at age 15 with his father, immigrated to the U. S. where he taught a Talmud class at RIETS. Zimmerman received rabbinical ordination from Rabbi Moshe Soloveitchik in 1939, his first published work, "Binyan Halakha", contains a letter of approbation from the Chief Rabbi of Eretz Israel, Rabbi Yitzchak Halevi Herzog, attesting that the young author was "fully knowledgeable in the entire Talmud Bavli and Yerushalmi and Achronim". He served as Rosh Yeshiva of Hebrew Theological College in Chicago until 1964, a Rosh Yeshiva in New York City and in Jerusalem, he immigrated to Israel in 1972. He died on march 9, 1995, he published several books on Philosophy. He was renowned as a genius in Torah learning, was well versed in mathematics and philosophy.

In the early 1950s, when the halachic status of the "international dateline" was the subject of considerable debate, he published his best known work, "Agan HaSahar". He is said to have considered that precious few could understand his work, printed a limited edition of only several hundred copies; the book today commands a rich premium from collectors, on the rare occasions when a copy becomes available for sale. His most famous disputant was Rav Menachem Kasher, whom he attacked vigorously in "Agan HaSahar", following Kasher's cavalier dismissal of his published opinions on the dateline controversy. In his book Torah and Existence, he cogently argues that the purpose of the world revolves around Torah; the first chapter contains an elaboration of his opinion that the founding of the modern State of Israel constituted the "Atchalta d'Geula", though he opposed much of the policies and leadership of the state.

Leopoldian line

The Leopoldian line was a sequence of descent in the Habsburg dynasty begun by Duke Leopold III of Austria, after the death of his elder brother Rudolf IV, divided the Habsburg hereditary lands with his brother Albert III according to the 1379 Treaty of Neuberg. The division of the Habsburg territories between the elder Albertinian and the younger Leopoldian line occurred after the early death of Duke Rudolf IV in 1365, when his surviving brothers Albert III and Leopold III, after several years of joint rule, divided the dynasty's dominions; the Leopoldian line received the Duchy of Styria, ruled by Austria according to the 1186 Georgenberg Pact, as well as the duchies of Carinthia and Duchy of Carniola, the County of Tyrol, the original Habsburg estates in the former Duchy of Swabia. Duke Leopold had four sons. Upon William's death in 1406, the remaining territories of Styria and Carniola were inherited by the third-born Ernest the Iron and became known as Inner Austria. Tyrol fell to the youngest brother, Frederick IV, called'of the Empty Pockets'.

Only the two youngest sons of Leopold III, Ernest the Iron and Frederick IV, had issue. The children of Ernest and his wife, the Piast princess Cymburgis of Masovia, started the most famous line of the Habsburg dynasty to which most subsequent Holy Roman Emperors belonged, including their son Frederick III, who acknowledged the Austrian archducal title and by 1490 had re-unified all the dynasty's dominions, his descendants, among them Maximilian I and Charles V, ruled the Holy Roman Empire and the Austrian Habsburg Monarchy in an unbroken succession until the male line became extinct with the death of Emperor Charles VI in 1740. The line of succession was continued by the last "genuine" Habsburg ruler, Maria Theresa, who became ancestress of the Imperial House of Lorraine.

Lawrence Tyson

Lawrence Davis Tyson was an American general and textile manufacturer, operating out of Knoxville, during the late 19th and early 20th centuries. He commanded the 59th Brigade of the 30th Infantry Division during World War I, served as a Democratic United States Senator from Tennessee from 1925 until his death. Tyson helped organize the Knoxville Cotton Mills in the early 20th century, served as president of the second Appalachian Exposition in 1911. A graduate of West Point, Tyson first saw military action during the Apache Wars in the 1880s, he moved to Knoxville in 1891 to teach military science at the University of Tennessee, commanded the 6th Regiment, Tennessee Volunteer Infantry during the Spanish–American War. From 1902 to 1908, Tyson served in the Tennessee House of Representatives, was Speaker of the House from 1903 to 1905. During the Meuse-Argonne Offensive of World War I, the 59th Brigade, under Tyson's leadership, became one of the first Allied brigades to break through the Hindenburg Line.

Tyson was born on the farm of his parents, Richard Lawrence Tyson and Margaret Turnage, near Greenville in Pitt County, North Carolina near the Tar River in the Tidewater region. He graduated from the Greenville Academy, worked as a clerk in Salisbury. In 1878, he scored the highest in his region on a competitive entrance exam for the United States Military Academy at West Point, was admitted the following year. Upon graduation in 1883, Tyson was commissioned as a second lieutenant, took part in the Apache Wars against a Geronimo-led faction of Apaches in the West. In 1886, Tyson married Bettie Humes McGhee, the daughter of wealthy Knoxville railroad baron Charles McClung McGhee. With his father-in-law's help, Tyson was appointed professor of military science at the University of Tennessee in 1891, he enrolled in the university's law school, from which he graduated in 1894. After his admission to the Tennessee Bar, he resigned his military commission, he began practicing law. At one point, he worked for the law firm of Edward Terry Sanford, future Supreme Court justice.

Upon the outbreak of the Spanish–American War in 1898, Tyson returned to active military duty. Appointed a colonel by President William McKinley, he organized and trained the 6th Regiment U. S. Volunteer Infantry in the Summer of 1898. In October, he and his unit were shipped to Puerto Rico, where they garrisoned the Arecibo area on the northern half of the island; as the war wound down in February 1899, Tyson's unit was ordered to Savannah, where they were mustered out a month later. Tyson entered the National Guard reserve units. Back in Knoxville, Tyson returned to private law practice, he organized the Knoxville Cotton Mills, which would grow to become one of Knoxville's major textile companies in the early 20th century. In 1907, he chaired a conference in Nashville, which called for reform in child labor practices across the South. In December 1910, several dozen children were still working at a Knoxville Cotton Mills factory, as shown in a photograph by National Child Labor Committee photographer Lewis Hine.

Tyson's first foray into politics came in 1902, when he was elected to the Tennessee House of Representatives. In 1889, the Democrats had gained control of the state legislature and passed four acts which they described as "electoral reform," including literacy tests, grandfather clauses and poll taxes; these resulted in the disfranchisement of most of the African-American voters in the state, as well as many poor white voters. This reduced competitive politics in the state, leading to Democratic dominance. From 1903 to 1905, Tyson served as the elected Speaker of the House, he served as a brigadier general and inspector general of the Tennessee National Guard, a position he held from 1902 to 1908. In 1913, he made an unsuccessful run for the U. S. Senate, seeking the Democratic nomination from the state legislature; that year, the Seventeenth Amendment to the United States Constitution was ratified, providing for popular election of US senators. It affected elections for US senators beginning in 1914.

Upon U. S. entry into World War I, Tyson applied to return to active military duty, was appointed brigadier general over all Tennessee National Guard troops by Governor Tom C. Rye; this commission was subsequently federalized by President Woodrow Wilson. Tyson was assigned to the 59th Brigade, 30th Infantry Division, helped train the brigade at Camp Sevier near Greenville, South Carolina; the 30th embarked for France in May 1918, were among the first American troops to enter Belgium in July of that year. In September 1918, the 30th Infantry Division was ordered to the Somme area in northern France, positioned opposite the fortified Cambrai-Saint Quentin Canal section of the Hindenburg Line. On the morning of September 29, the 30th attacked German fortifications along this section of the line. Marching in dense fog, the troops pushed across a 3-mile stretch of "wire entanglements and trench defenses" before crossing the canal and securing the area. According to some reports, the 59th was the first Allied brigade to break through the Hindenburg Line.

In subsequent weeks, the 59th captured the northern French villages of Prémont and Busigny, fought its last action on October 20. In the course of the war, 1,879 of the 59th's 8,000 troops were wounded; the brigade received nine Medals of Honor, the most of any single brigade in World War I.
