ABSTRACT
The article discusses how a secret benefactor helped start Father Flanagan's Boys Town in Omaha, Nebraska. Father Flanagan turned to Henry Monsky, a prominent Jewish lawyer, to start a new kind of orphanage in a house he had found in the city. Monsky continued to support Father Flanagan as Boys Town moved and expanded, giving far more than the initial ninety-dollar loan. At the time he supplied the money, he stipulated that no one should know his identity.
