LEOPOLD GROSBERG (1870-November 1926)
            He was born in Beiuș (Belényes), Romania, the son of R. Asher Grosberg.  He studied in yeshivas and received rabbinical ordination.  Over the years 1892-1918, he was editor, later publisher, of the radical Orthodox Algemeyne yudishe tsaytung (General Jewish newspaper) in Budapest, which appeared daily, aside from Saturday and Sunday.  At the start of WWI, he tried to bring out a Sunday issue as well.  In 1918 he sold the newspaper to Mizrachi.
