Donor of the collection, Fred Sklar was a native Houstonian and attended San Jacinto High School and Rice University for his bachelor’s degree. The avid sports enthusiast was All Southwest Conference at Rice University, going on to run marathons, and lead Pickle Ball games later in his life, for which he was inducted into the Ronnie Arrow Houston Jewish Sports Hall of Fame in 2008. After graduating in 1956, Fred went on to become a Second Lieutenant in the U.S. Army at Fort Polk, Louisiana before marrying Patsy Sklar, his wife of 61 years, in 1958. The two settled in Houston after his service, and Fred worked as a CPA at Ernst and Young and then senior positions at banks and then ultimately in real estate as a commercial real estate broker. Fred Sklar passed away peacefully on January 1, 2019 at age 84.
Also featured prominently in the collection are Fred’s Grandparents, Esther and Meyer Moore, his aunt and uncle Frimet and Max Moore, and his cousins Abe, Alex, and Evelyn Moore. The arranger’s reconstructed family tree can be found in the collection’s control folder.
