Biographical Note

Harold P. Givner was born in New York. His family moved to Charleston, South Carolina, in the early 1900s where his father (Louis Givner) opened a tailor shop. Givner worked as a designer in the shop and eventually ran the business himself. He joined Dan Lodge No. 593 of B'nai B'rith in 1928, the year after he married his wife, Claire.
