Alvin Neuberger, 87, was relocation lawyer for city


Alvin Neuberger, 87, a retired relocation lawyer for the Baltimore Urban Renewal and Housing Authority, died Monday at Sinai Hospital after a heart attack.

Graveside services were being held today at Hebrew Friendship Cemetery, 3600 E. Baltimore St.

Mr. Neuberger, who lived on Pinkney Road, retired in 1976 from the city agency where he had served since 1960.

Born in Baltimore and a graduate of Friends School, he attended the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania and Johns Hopkins University before entering the first class in the daytime program at the University of Maryland Law School, from which he graduated in 1928. He practiced law in Baltimore, and then in 1937, he became executive director of the Jewish Educational Alliance.

From 1945 until 1953, he lived in Charleroi, Pa., where he was associated with his father-in-law's men's clothing business.

After returning to Baltimore, he joined the staff of the Baltimore Association of Credit Men, remaining there until he took the city post.

Mr. Neuberger was a longtime member of the Chizuk Amuno Congregation and was a former president of the board of the Hebrew Friendship Cemetery.

Survivors include his wife of 53 years, the former Lois Greenberg; a daughter, Ann N. Hamburger of Columbia; a son, David S. Neuberger of Houston, and four grandchildren.
