Comment 1[edit]

I didn't find any reference to Roger Wolfe Kahn actually being his son. Can anyone verify/falsify this piece of information? --KF 13:06, 3 Jan 2004 (UTC) Theresa Collins, "Otto Kahn - Art, Money & Modern Time" refers to four Kahn children, including Roger Wolfe Kahn.

Also, Otto Hermann Kahn is sometimes referred to as Otto Kahn. I'll make a redirect. --KF 13:08, 3 Jan 2004 (UTC)

It's getting more interesting after the addition, by, of Kahn's granddaughter. Who can fill the gap and add Kahn's wife and children? --KF 23:34, 7 Jan 2004 (UTC) I have added Kahn's wife, Addie and four children. Kahn's second child, Margaret, married John Barry Ryan. Their decendants are members of the extended British royal family.

I have made numerous changes to this page, including additional information on Kahn's early life, his various homes, family, books and speeches made by and about him and provided some additional internet links. My sources are chiefly the Theresa Collins book referenced above, as well as the John Kobler and Mary Jane Matz books on Kahn. All of which were added to the books about Kahn section. Sources for the numerous publications of Kahn speeches, include my personal collection of Kahn materials, as well as internet searches of books by Kahn. Clarification for the change to the reference that Olmstead Brothers designed the grounds of the Long Island home, in contrast to the Frederick Law Olmstead, Sr. himself, is predicated on the notion that Frederick Law Olmstead Sr, the architect of Central Park, died in 1903, approximately ten years before purchase of the Long Island property.

Information concering the 1 East 91st Street home was found via various internet sites, including the Church of the Sacred Heart website, current occupant of the home,, and

Great! Thanks! <KF> 14:56, 3 December 2005 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Fascist Italy[edit]

I don't see any reference to Kahn's praise of Mussilini's government for ending democracy. that's pretty controversial Paskari 23:06, 25 December 2006 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Provide the quote, and we will see. The date you give is significant; many progressive and liberal types admired some of what Mussolini did - at first. 2A00:23C3:E284:900:25B9:611:9D20:EEA8 (talk) 11:55, 27 May 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Marx Brothers[edit]

I think he was burlesqued in their stage show 'Animal Crackers', also made into a movie in 1930. The characters name was 'Roscoe W. Chandler'. I cannot find a primary source for this yet, but it should be in the article as soon as it is verified. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 21:30, 5 March 2015 (UTC)Reply[reply]
