This item is SOLD. Please inquire about similar material.
American Roman Catholic priest; celebrated founder of Boys Town in Nebraska.
TLS – Typewritten Letter Signed, one page, January 1946, on Boys Town letterhead. Addressed to actor and Mrs. Pat O’Brien, acknowledging the gift of $500 toward Boys Town development fund. Nice example. Becoming increasingly difficult to acquire, especially with this content.
In 2012 Flanagan was declared Venerable owing to his record of ministry. In May 2019 the Congregation for the Causes of Saints completed a three-year investigation into the life of Flanagan and, shortly, may declare him a Servant of God with the introduction of a first miracle.
Nota bene: We also have a First Edition of Will and Fulton Oursler’s Father Flanagan of Boys Town 1949. Boards, spine and interior solid and fresh. Has the uncommon dust jacket in very good condition. Priced at $75.00.
