Tribute To Eli M. Schulman and the Soldiers of World War II on the 70th Anniversary of Pearl Harbor

It was 70 years this week on December 7th, 1941 that America suffered its “Day of Infamy” with the Pearl Harbor invasion and the entry of the US into World War II. Over the next five years, over 16 million American men and women served our country including our founder, Eli M. Schulman. The menu above is from Eli Schulman’s “Victory Dinner” on May 18th, 1942 when he joined the US Army Air Corp.

 

Eli Schulman had opened Eli’s Ogden Huddle in 1940 and was called upon to use his foodservice experience to operate a series of PX’s for Army Air Corp in Texas, Colorado and Utah rising to the rank of Staff Sergeant.

Being a member of the Army Air Corp, Eli on the right was a part of the team providing support for the B-17 and B-24 Bombers that has such an important role in bringing World War II to an end.

Eli Schulman (on the right) was the host for Actress Ann Sothern when she visited the Army Air Base in Salt Lake City. Considered one of the most beautiful actresses her time, Sothern was at the top of her appeal in World War II appearing in a series of films and radio shows starring her as “Maisie,” a brassy Brooklyn burlesque dancer.

Eli’s Cheesecake history of creating specialty big cakes dates back to Eli Schulman’s days in the Army Air Corp in World War II. Eli, on the left, approves of the cake baked in his kitchen.
