Acting on behalf of the American Jewish Historical Society, the Lyons Collection Committee, chaired by Leon Huhner, was responsible for curating and publishing a major collection of papers gathered by Jacques Judah Lyons (1813-1877). Besides Huhner, the committee consisted of Albert M. Friedenberg, Herber Friedenwald, N. Taylor Phillips, and David de Sola Pool. Translations published from this collection by the Society were not attributed further than this committee.
