He also taught citizenship courses for new immigrants. He completed a bachelor's degree in history at Johns Hopkins University in 1939.

From 1938 to 1951, he taught economics and history at Baltimore Polytechnic Institute, was the athletic department's business manager and appeared in the Poly Follies, an annual teacher-student show.

Mr. Himelfarb spent several years as a trustee of the Fresh Air Fund, which helps send inner-city children to summer camp. He was a "big brother" at the Jewish Big Brother and Big Sister League. And for 45 years, he was a member of the Beth Jacob Congregation.

Himelfarb of Tulsa, Okla.; three sisters, Rose Gewirtz, Jessie Himelfarb and Shirley Applebaum, all of Baltimore; a brother, Morris Himelfarb of Baltimore; and four grandchildren.
