Samuel, Sydney Montagu


SAMUEL, SYDNEY MONTAGU (1848–1884), British journalist. Born in London and educated at London University, a nephew of the first Baron Swaythling, Samuel was active in Jewish social welfare work. A prolific writer, he ranged from poetry to finance and wrote an annual financial survey for the Times. In 1878 he acquired part ownership of the Jewish Chronicle and wrote for that paper on many subjects. His series of travel articles was published as a book, Jewish Life in the East (1881). He was also active in the theater and wrote a comedy, A Quiet Pipe (1880). Samuel was a merchant banker in the City of London, dying, it is said, of overwork, at the age of 36.

Citation styles gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:
