Biographical Information

Photographer Jacob Ruben was born in Russia in 1882 to a Jewish family. The family came to America in the late 1880s (1910 US Census). Ruben and his wife Sarah lived in Newburgh, New York, a town in the Hudson Valley between New York City and Poughkeepsie, and had three children, Rachel, Harry, and Beatrice (1920 U.S. Census). According to the Dumbarton Oaks Research Library and Collection, Ruben was a stationer/publisher, and he "became a well-known commercial photographer in the Hudson River Valley area near Newburgh for over four decades until after the Second World War." Ruben died in 1974 (Dumbarton Oaks Research Libary and Collection).
