Harvey ‘Bud’ Meyerhoff, Baltimore businessman and philanthropist who was a driving force behind Holocaust museum, dies at 96
Harvey Morton “Bud” Meyerhoff demanded the highest quality not only of himself, but those he came in contact with. It allowed him to sustain the Meyerhoff name in real estate, philanthropy and civic leadership. Meyerhoff died Sunday at his Baltimore County home, according to family. He was 96.
His father, Joseph “Joe” Meyerhoff, immigrated to Baltimore from Russia in 1906 before marrying Rebecca Witten in 1921, according to the Joseph and Harvey Meyerhoff Family Charitable Funds foundation. The couple had two daughters and a son, Harvey, who was born in 1927.
Terry Rubenstein, Meyerhoff’s daughter, said her father was demanding and parented in an “exacting” manner. “He approached raising us like he would with his projects, with a certain kind of diligence and excellence. And so whether it was running his building company, building thousands of apartments throughout the state and along the East Coast or when he took over to build a Holocaust museum in Washington, he approached it with the highest level of quality,” Rubenstein said.
