Alfred Z. Solomon Charitable Trust
Alfred Z. Solomon Scholarship
With gratitude to Victoria Garlanda and Harry Snyder, trustees of the Alfred Z. Solomon Charitable Trust.
The Alfred Z. Solomon Scholarship assists students who are community college graduates residing in Saratoga County with demonstrated financial need. Alfred Solomon came from a working immigrant family. His grandfather sold whiskey and his father sold lighting fixtures. Mr. Solomon entered the fashion world by importing trimmings for hat makers. Eventually, he seized the fashion industry through the sale of ladies hats. Through hard work, ingenuity, an entrepreneurial spirit and a fine mind, Mr. Solomon turned himself into a success. A Saratoga institution, he passed away at the age of 104.
