Meyer H. Goldman was born in Cambridge, Massachusetts in 1905. He graduated from Harvard College in 1926 and then from Harvard Law School in 1929. While at Harvard, he was the president of Avukah, a student Zionist organization; he remained active in Zionist organizations and founded several chapters of the Young Judaea club. On March 4, 1933, he married Gladys, with whom he had one daughter, Josephine. In 1934 and 1935, Goldman served as pro bono counsel for Murton and Irving Millen, two brothers charged and later convicted of the murder of Needham, Massachusetts police officer Forbes A. McLeod. Goldman eventually started his own criminal law practice, but later turned his attention to medical malpractice. In addition to practicing law, Goldman was master of ceremonies at variety shows and organized events for seamen visiting Boston during World War II. Goldman died at the Heathwood Nursing Home in Newton, Massachusetts in 1996 at the age of 91.
