Biography.

Matusof's son Harold wrote a memoir of his father:

Notes on Morris Matusof by Harold Matusof

During his service in the Russian Army, he had the rank of Sergeant. He fought against the Japanese Army in the Russo-Japanese war of 1905 around Vladivostok. Other duties were service in protecting the Tsar's palace in St. Petersburg and military duty at the Finnish border.

After his service in the Russian Army, he migrated first to France where he lived with a French farm family for a short period of time. In 1910, he immigrated to the United States. In 1917, he enlisted in the Jewish Legion of the British Army (39th Royal Fusiliers) known in Hebrew as "Hagdud Haivri". His battalion fought against the Ottoman Turks in what was then called Palestine and is now called Israel.

Morris was one of thirteen children of Eli Nathan and Basia Matusof. The family lived in utter poverty and many of them died before the age of five. During the winter, the children and the animals (goats) vied with each other to be nearest to the stove to keep warm. Morris was a rebellious child and at the age of 12 ran away to the city of Eketerinaslav (Dnieperpetrovsk). His whereabouts from that point in his life until about the age of eighteen (no birth record) when he was drafted into the Russian Army are unknown. Little is known about his surviving siblings or what happened to them in World War II. Recent inquiries to computerized Ellis Island files suggest that a brother and sister may have emigrated to the USA about the same time as Morris.

Although he had little formal schooling, he was self taught. He was fluent in several languages (Russian, Hebrew, Yiddish, French, and English). He read and understood the "New York Times" newspaper daily. He founded a Jewish history and philosophy group which brought out his intellectual qualities. He was a long time member of the Poale Zion (Labor Zionist) organization.

Morris was older (and wiser?) than most of his comrades in the Jewish Legion and was already exposed to military duties when he was in the Russian army. He therefore did not take military discipline too seriously. He went AWOL several times in the Palestinian countryside to explore the Jewish homeland. Of course, he was punished with hard labor for short periods of time, but in his mind, it was well worth the experiences.

He often talked about life in Russia. The family was very poor. In the cold of winter, All of the children and their goats would fight to be the closest to the stove. There was also a Turkish bath house in Khotchimsk. People would run outside and roll in the snow if it got too hot inside.

During the Great Depression in the 1930's, he was unemployed for long periods of time in his trade of ladies garment manufacturing. But despite the hard times, Morris and Fannie always provided food, clothing and shelter. The years of the Great Depression were also the years of Prohibition. More than a few times, Morris manufactured "moonshine" in the bathroom. Morris was a Schnapps drinker and became very jovial after a few drinks at social gatherings. He would become the life of the party.

The last five years of his life were not pleasant. In 1950, he slipped on an icy sidewalk while going to work and broke his hip. He was in an ankle to hip cast for 33 weeks in St. Vincent Hospital in New York.

The operation on his hip was not successful and he developed a chronic infection. He then suffered a series of strokes until he passed away in September 1955. He had several stays at the Army Hospital on Governors Island, New York where he was treated as an Officer since he was a dependent of Lieutenant Harold Matusof, his son. One of the things that kept him going in these last years was his joy of watching young children playing in their basement apartment yard from his bedroom window in our ground floor apartment.

According to Ellis Island records, Morris arrived at Ellis Island on June 13, 1910 from the port of Libau, Posen, Prussia, Germany. Ship of travel - Russia. Morris had no known contact with any of his family in the United States although it is known that he sent CARE packages t his family in Russia in the aftermath of World War I. It was at one of these CARE stations that he met his wife-to-be -- Fannie. Recent perusal of immigration records in the year 2001 indicate the possibility of a brother and sister immigrating to the USA about the same time as Morris, but no contact was ever made with them.

Morris had a unique gift in his ability to analyze current and historical events and project their political impact far into the future. For example, he had a great mistrust of the Soviet Union during World War II and accurately predicted the Cold War to come.

1996Death of SpouseHis wife, Faigl Glotzer, died on 21 December 1996 in Walnut Creek, Contra Costa County, California.
