He completed his Bachelor of Arts and law degrees at the University of Manitoba, becoming a member of the Manitoba Bar Association in 1931. His first legal practice was a partnership with Louis S.

These positions included: Chair United Palestine Appeal; President Sharon Men’s Zionist Club; President Jewish Immigrant Aid Society Western Division; director for the YMHA; Glendale Country Club; The Little Theatre; Winnipeg Community Chest; Zionist Organization of Canada Honorary Life President.

Custodial history

No records pertaining to the custodial history of the record were retained.

Scope and content

The papers are arranged into one series, which primarily includes publications written by Drache about the economic state of Canadian industry, as well as galley proofs from 1975 of the journal Manitoba Bar News-- which were never published because the journal folded in 1976 or 1977--, and a dinner program honouring Drache sponsored by the Jewish National Fund.
