CREATCHMAN

  1. Philip Teitelbaum's taped recollections

Philip Teitelbaum's taped recollections (Summer 2007) Note: audio is ON Peter: Creatchman...is the one that got up in the shul and used to talk about J Emile Dubreuil. Philip: He said "Absolutley vote for J Emile Dubreuil!" And J Emile Dubreuil actually won. He became the alderman in Papineau when he was running against Mr Lamar. Peter: So you say, you're telling me, that that Eddie Creatchman, the famous wrestling promoter, was one of the boys, one of his sons. Philip: He was one of the sons and I remember him as being younger than I am. Peter: He died. Philip: Oh, did he? Peter: A few years ago - I guess he was born a three or four years after you. Were there other kids there? Philip: There were other kids and they were older. I don't remember their names. [We are pretty sure that one of the sons was Eddie Creatchman, who became well known as a wrestling promoter in Montreal.]
