Introduction is sourced from South Jersey: A History, 1624-1924

CARL KISSELMAN — Among the younger members of the legal profession who are prepared to fill the ranks as the older and noted men of the legal fraternity come to years of retirement, is Carl Kisselman, who was admitted to the bar of the State of New Jersey in February, 1922. David Kisselman, father of Carl Kisselman, was born in the Ukraine district of Russia, and after receiving a practical education in the local schools served an apprenticeship in the Russian Army. He saw no active service, and in 1871, when he was eighteen years of age came to America and located in Camden, where he engaged in the real estate and insurance business, opening an office at No. 1019 South Fifth Street. He married Dora Handle, also a native of Russia.

Carl Kisselman, son of David and Dora (Handle) Kisselman, was born in Elmer, New Jersey, April 23, 1899. After attending the Washington Grammar School of Camden, from which he graduated in 1914, he entered Camden High School, and graduated with the June class of 1918. He was now ready to begin his professional study and he matriculated in the University of Pennsylvania, but before completing the course there made a change and became a student in Temple University of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Before his University course was completed he passed the examinations for admission to the New Jersey bar and later, while still a student, began reading law under the direction of Albert S. Woodruff. He was admitted in February, 1922, and at once prepared to engage in general practice at law.

Politically, Mr. Kisselman gives his support to the Republican party. During the period of the participation of the United States in the World War he was a member of the Students’ Army Training Corps, but, of course, saw no active service. He is a member of Camden Lodge, No. 293, Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks, and is an interested member of the Sixth Ward Republican Club. His religious affiliation is with the Reformed Hebrew Church.
