In summing up Levi's life and the establishment of his business, the San Francisco Board of Trade stated:
"...the great causes of education and charity have
suffered a signal loss in the death of Mr. Strauss, whose splendid endowments to the University of California will be an enduring testimonial of his worth as a liberal, public-minded citizen and whose numberless unostentatious acts of charity in which neither race nor creed were recognized, exemplified his broad and generous love and sympathy for humanity."
