    Biography "Born in 1865, he was one of fourteen children of a Jewish
    merchant family centered in Hamburg. Several of the sons were sent
    abroad to different countries to represent the family firm, which
    dealt in line and cotton. Edgar had spent some time in Spain and over
    ten years in Manchester, England, where he had made a sizable fortune
    for himself. The Jaffe firm in Manchester had a very good reputation
    for the fairness and politeness of the employers to their staff: they
    always gave their Halle tickets to employees for the performances of
    The Messiah and of Elijah. When his father died, Edgar Jaffe returned
    to Germany and took up the academic life.
    All the Jaffes of that generation had a lot of money. They tended
    to retire early - some lived the life of country gentlemen on their
    estates, breeding horses and trout and growing roses - and were in all
    respects a fine example of that lavish prosperity which historians
    associate with the founding years of Bismarck's Reich. Because of
    their race, they also exemplify that Jewish success in life which so
    disastrously roused the envy and enmity of less successful Germans."  [1
