Ep. 670 Private Philanthropy: The Subject Your History Textbook Left Out
27th May 2016 Tom Woods7

The American people give vastly more in philanthropic donations on a percentage basis than anyone in the world. This is the best-kept secret in American textbooks. Any schoolboy would have the impression that government intervention is required in order to get things done — after all, who else is going to do it? The suppressed history of American philanthropy is fascinating and compelling, and our expert guest takes us through this important part of American history and culture.

About the GuestKarl Zinsmeister is vice president of publications for the Philanthropy Roundtable. Before that he spent 13 years as editor of The American Enterprise, the magazine of the American Enterprise Institute. From 2006 to 2009 he served in the West Wing as the president’s chief domestic policy adviser.

I was singularly impressed with the mention of Oseola McCarty.

2016 05May 31 Oseola McCarty young

She was a local washerwoman in Hattiesburg, Mississippi who became The University of Southern Mississippi’s most famous benefactor. — Wikipedia
Born: March 7, 1908, Wayne County, Mississippi, MS
Died: September 26, 1999, Hattiesburg, MS

http://www.philanthropyroundtable.org/almanac/hall_of_fame/oseola_mccarty

*** begin quote ***

Even more startling: she decided to give most of it away—not as a bequest, but immediately.

Setting aside just enough to live on, McCarty donated $150,000 to the University of Southern Mississippi to fund scholarships for worthy but needy students seeking the education she never had. When they found out what she had done, over 600 men and women in Hattiesburg and beyond made donations that more than tripled her original endowment. Today, the university presents several full-tuition McCarty scholarships every year.

Like a lot of philanthropists, McCarty wanted the satisfactions of giving while living. And she succeeded. The first beneficiary of her gift, a Hattiesburg girl named Stephanie Bullock, was president of her senior class and had supportive parents, but also a twin brother, and not enough family income to send them both to college. With her McCarty Scholarship, Bullock enrolled at Southern Miss, and promptly adopted McCarty as a surrogate grandmother.

*** end quote ***

“Hard work gives your life meaning,” stated McCarty. “Everyone needs to work hard at somethin’ to feel good about themselves. Every job can be done well and every day has its satisfactions. . . . If you want to feel proud of yourself, you’ve got to do things you can be proud of.” — Oseola McCarty (Hattiesburg MS washerwoman 1908 - 1999)

"I can’t do everything. But I can do something to help somebody. And what I can do I will do.” — Oseola McCarty (Hattiesburg MS washerwoman 1908 - 1999)

# - # - # - # - #

How can I not be humbled at the example of this woman?

Is this like the “widow’s mite” mentioned in the Bible?

I’m a curmudgeonly retired fat old white guy injineer, and this just shocked me.

Despite being caricatured as “Scotsman with a five pound note”, I’ve been know to give the moths in the pocketbook some sunshine and exercise from time to time. But this woman is a heroine!

Originally, I was going to use the podcast to point out the seldom reported fact of just how generous Americans are as a percentage of GDP — 40% higher than the nearest nation Canada after adjusting for various variables. But in hearing Ms. McCarty’s story, I refocused to share that in this space. Truly, inspiring.

The podcast pointed out the long tradition in America of “charity” — at local levels, without Government involvement, in spontaneous organizations, that do have a lot of administration and overhead.

Also, the fact that Alfred Loomis funded and directed making RADAR practical at the beginning of WW2.

But I’ll save those for another time, and not detract from the tremendous example of Ms. McCarty.

Why good old-fashioned networking is still a top priority
By Vicki Salemi
June 5, 2016 | 6:10am

*** begin quote ***

Two weeks ago, Kyle Watson received his bachelor’s degree from Manhattan College, but unlike countless college graduates, for him, pounding the pavement would be unnecessary. The degree holder in economics, finance and global business had already landed his dream job at the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago. How did he do it? As a result of good, old-fashioned offline networking.

“I was always close with my professors and one in particular, Dr. Hany Guirguis, must have seen something in me,” explains Watson from his home in East Brunswick, NJ, where he’ll be until his job as a rotational analyst for the Markets Group begins in July.

Guirguis ran the Federal Reserve Challenge, a competition among local schools to make the best case for a course of action for the Federal Reserve’s monetary policy, Watson worked 10 to 14 hours each day on the case, preparing the presentation.

Good Afternoon All,

Just a couple of follow up prayer requests to share.

Please remember Nancy Maksomski's Mom. On Monday, June 6th, Mrs. Maksomski will be going in for the first of two back surgeries. We pray for complete success to alleviate her constant pain and discomfort as this operation further prepares her for her 2nd surgery, a week or so later.

Please keep Jeanne Nason in your prayers as Jean continues to recuperate and heal.

As our Littlest Jasper, Luke and his Family gear up for Luke's Summer Activities, we pray for Luke and that his wonderful smile remains an inspiration.

Thank you. God Bless.

I am sprinting toward 60, an age that leads me to reflect on all that I was fortunate to see during a sports-writing career that has hit 38 years and to wonder how many stories I might still have the privilege to tell.
I have written for two national newspapers, The New York Times and USA TODAY, as well as other major outlets, allowing me to cover every Triple Crown race and every Breeders’ Cup since 1997. In addition, I worked every Super Bowl from 1996 through 2012, every World Series from 1985-1994, five Winter Olympics and one Summer Games at magical Sydney, Australia.

I was an ambitious communications major at Manhattan College in Bronx, N.Y., when Affirmed valiantly fought off Alydar three times in five weeks in the Kentucky Derby, Preakness and Belmont Stakes in 1978. One of my dreams was to chronicle the deeds of Affirmed’s successor.

PRAYERSREQUESTED: Colon, Philip J. (MC1962) asks Mrs. Maksomski's intents

2016-Jun-06

Good Evening All,

Please keep prayers up for Mrs. Maksomski. She is apprehensive about tomorrow's surgery. We pray for success and guidance to the Surgeon's hand.

Nancy Maksomski asks for our prayers as well for:

Nancy's Uncle, Fellow Jasper, John Crawford '55 and his wife Emily who was recently diagnosed with Dementia. Although they live in an Assisted Living Community, care for Emily especially at night is a challenge. We pray that a night nurse is a help and that their lives are more settled.

Nancy also asks for our prayers for Fellow Jasper, Dr. Arthur O'Leary '46. He will be having Cardiac Valve surgery this month and may also need Pulmonary Valve Surgery. We pray for success and complete recovery for Dr. O'Leary as the MDs prepare him and perform the required surgery.

I also ask for your prayers for Nancy who is experiencing some difficult back/Spine issues as well. We pray that surgery is not necessary as Nancy is being evaluated.

Thank you. God Bless.

Joseph Sullivan
Obituary

SULLIVAN

Joseph Patrick, beloved husband, grandfather and greatest father of all time, died peacefully in his home in Wyckoff, NJ surrounded by loved ones on Sunday, June 5, 2016.

He was 80 years old.Born in New York City in 1935, he was the son of Irish immigrants, Delia and Patrick Sullivan. Joe often recalled with pleasure his early days at Our Lady of Lourdes grammar school and later his attendance at Cardinal Hayes High School, class of 1953.

After earning a business degree from Manhattan College, he joined the US military as a Marine Corps Infantry Officer and completed Naval Justice School. After discharge he continued to serve his country by dedicating 25 years to the FBI as an agent specializing in Cuban Affairs. Upon his government retirement, he went to work for Nabisco as Senior Director of Corporate Security. A highlight of this position included his first and only visit to Cuba in 1995.

Joe and his wife of 47 years, Donna, raised their loving family in their Wyckoff home where they've lived since 1972. In his own words, "It is the underpinning of a loving wife and family that has provided the glue to make my life more than I ever imagined." His happiest of times included camping trips, world travel with Donna, playing tennis, golfing with friends, and writing sidesplitting Christmas letters.

A firm believer that a good laugh and a long sleep were the best cures of all, Joe leaves behind his wife Donna Doherty Sullivan; his six children: Jean Spatz (John), Janet Rosenthal (Phil), Joseph Sullivan Jr (Kate), Diane Kellogg (Adam), Danny Sullivan (Margarita), and Kerry Sheeran (Tom); his pride of 20 grandchildren; and many nieces, nephews and friends. He will be greatly missed by all those who loved him so. Joe was predeceased by his first wife, Anne Mueller Sullivan, and his sister, Mary Sullivan Duignan.

Visitation will be held on Sunday, June 12th from 2-6 PM at Vander Plaat Funeral Home, (vpfh.com) 257 Godwin Ave., Wyckoff. The funeral mass will be celebrated on Monday at 10 AM at St. Elizabeth's Church, 700 Wyckoff Ave., Wyckoff, NJ. The burial will follow at Christ The King Cemetery, 980 Huron Rd, Franklin Lakes.

In lieu of flowers contributions in Joe's memory may be made to the Alzheimer's Association , 400 Morris Ave, Suite 251, Denville, NJ 07834 (www.alz.org), or to the pro-life organization Lifenet, P.O. Box 1800, Montclair, NJ 07042 (www.lifeneteducation.org).

On May 22, the Regis community honored Donodeo for his 100th season coaching track at the school. “JD Day” began with Mass, continued with a ceremonial run through Central Park and wrapped up with a reception back at the school.

Born and raised in Astoria, Donodeo grew up in St. Rita’s parish, Long Island City, before running cross-country and track for four years at Mater Christi H.S., Astoria. He went on to earn his undergraduate degree in physical education at Manhattan College, the Bronx, before receiving a master’s degree from Penn State University, State College, Pa

Elizabeth Johnson honored by women theologians

*** begin quote ***

SAN JUAN, PUERTO RICO Editor's note: NCR is reporting on the ground at this year's Catholic Theological Society of America conference in San Juan, Puerto Rico. Keep checking our feature series page CTSA 2016 for our coverage.

Feminist theologian St. Joseph Sr. Elizabeth Johnson challenged fellow theologians “to do something,” echoing the words of the namesake of the award she received June 9 for her ministry on behalf of women. The award was presented at the Catholic Theological Society of America (CTSA) conference in San Juan, Puerto Rico.

Johnson told the story of how in 1995 theologian Ann O’Hara Graff urged Johnson, then-president of CTSA, to respond to the Vatican’s assertion that the prohibition against women’s ordination was infallible. The CTSA eventually approved a statement challenging that assertion. Johnson called O’Hara Graff’s persistence her “last gift to the church and to women.”

“Is it possible for us to overestimate her grace in the of the face of the ecclesial violence that was thrown her way?” asked Natalie Imperatori-Lee of Manhattan College, a former student of Johnson’s.

A while back I asked for your prayers for a friend and colleague of our Niece, Kerry. Jen McCoy was diagnosed with Leukemia and was immediately placed on treatment. Jen is free of the Cancer and is on a follow up low grade Chemo for five months and the MDs are optimistic that she will remain in good health. Jen, her Family and Friends thank you for your prayers. Praise God. Thank you. God Bless.

A prayer of thanks is also in order for Nany Maksomski and her Mom. Mrs. Maksomski is through that rough patch after her back operation and is moving about better as she prepares for the follow up procedure so please keep her in you prayers. Nancy, herself, has been told that she, Nancy, will not need back surgery but will be treated instead.

Thank you for your prayers. God Bless.

ENDNOTE: All engineers go to Heaven

FROM MY “OLD” FRIEND

An Engineer dies and goes to Hell. 

Dissatisfied with the level of comfort, he starts designing and building improvements.  After a while, Hell has air conditioning, flush toilets and escalators.  The engineer is a pretty popular guy.

One day God calls and asks Satan, "So, how's it going down there?" Satan says, "Hey things are going great.  We've got air conditioning and flush toilets and escalators, and there's no telling what this engineer is going to come up with next."

God is horrified.  "What? You've got an engineer?  That's a mistake; he should never have gone down there! You know all engineers go to Heaven.  Send him up here!"

Satan says, "No way.  I like having an engineer on the staff. I’m keeping him."

God says, "Send him back up here or I'll sue." "Yeah, right,"

Satan laughs, "and where are you going to get a lawyer?"

I thought this was funny, EXCEPT he consistently misspelled “injineer”.

Glad to know that ALL injineers go to heaven. (Read it on the inet so it must be true!)

I was worried up to now.

FJR LOL
