Jack Snow

674 IPD

Jack Snow, who founded Snow Jewelers in the 1920s, was arguably the city's most famous jeweler, and a well respected philanthropist. He is known for his "Jack Snow Dog Derby" fundraiser on the frozen canal, which is credited with being the precursor to Winterlude.

Jack Snow lived in 674 IPD. Since Jewish golfers were not allowed to be members of the Royal Ottawa in the 1950s, it was in the basement of his home where Jack and a number of his friends decided to build their own golf club, the Rideauview.
