White Metropolis: Race, Ethnicity, and Religion in Dallas, 1841-2001

http://www.ancestry.com/search/SurnamePage...ourcecode=13304

What does the name mean?

Last Name: Schepps

Jewish (Ashkenazic): ornamental name from Yiddish sheps ‘ram’, ‘sheep’.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

http://www.dallasobserver.com/issues/1999-...ature_full.html

Just south of downtown sits the Ervay Theater, the former home of Jack Ruby's nightclub the Silver Spur. It's only appropriate that attorney Bobby Goldstein has turned this venerable old joint into his office

It wouldn't be the first time attorney Goldstein, a grandson of Schepps Dairy founder Harmon Schepps, has been mistaken for scum -- either by detractors or even his own clients, one of whom turned her own lawyer into a defendant.

Mr. McWILLIE. Well, I noticed him at the counter. We went into

this restaurant every night to eat and three or four nights he was

at the counter and staring at fellows and myself and I asked

someone who he was and I don't know, one of them knew him or

not, they said he had a night club or something.

Anyway, about the third or fourth night when we got up to leave

he walked over and introduced himself to me and I said nice to

meet you and what do you want, Mr. Ruby? And, he went on to tell

me about he was having trouble with his night club and had some

kind of curfew put on him and I asked him, I said, Mr. Ruby, you

are Jewish, aren't you, and he said, yes. I said well, there is a

gentleman here in town by the name of Julius Schepps that might

be able to help you, if there is nothing bad wrong with you, so I

suggested that he go see Mr. Schepps, and he did, and he seemed to

get his trouble straightened out.

Mr. PURDY. Mr. Schepps was able to help Jack Ruby?

Mr. McWILLIE. Evidently, because he didn't have any more

trouble.

In fact, I had a call from Julius Schepps and some of the most responsible and influential people we do have in Dallas too, and they said to me, "I hope you are not going to get involved in this case," and to Julius I remember I said, "Well, Julius, you know--" he heard my name mentioned, and I said, "Julius, if I were able to represent the man I would" (Thomas H. Purvis quoting text)

If I remember correctly, Julius Schepps and John Connolly knew each other quite well - Connolly being responsible for securing Schepps a lofty position with the Parks Department.

Also, Tom, do you know anything about an alleged mentoring type relationship between Julius Schepps and Abe's son Henry Zapruder? During the mid 1950's, Henry was President of the B'nai B'rith Junior Order.
