|Horatio Alger, Ragged Dick and the Vagrant Boys of New York||
New York of the 1850s was a time when the Irish fleeing the famine in their home country arrived in great numbers only to settle in ethnic ghettos. With no skills or education, little English, and of Catholic faith in a predominantly Protestant culture they faced discrimination for the available factory jobs. Many children became homeless, living on the streets and working as bootblacks or shoeshine boys. Horatio Alger wrote novels about these boys and their rise from humble backgrounds to lives of middle-class security and comfort through hard work, determination, and honesty. We will read excerpts from Alger’s most famous novel “Ragged Dick” and learn about the “Gilded Age,” the Newsboys Lodging House, and New York City during this period. Presenter: Rick Feingold teaches “The Building of America” at Bergen Community College and holds a degree in History from Rutgers University.
