He received his education in engineering at the TU Berlin-Charlottenburg and after his emigration to Palestine in 1892, he built major public landmarks in the city of Haifa, including the central train station, the power station and several hospitals. Wilbushevitz was a Zionist industrial pioneer and a well-known public figure within the Jewish community in Palestine. The collection includes various architectural materials concerning his projects.
