In Good Company presents None But The Best
Turmoil and strife followed the U.S. Civil War: news of reconstruction, industrialization, the Gilded Age, labor struggles, and womens suffrage monopolized newspaper headlines. Through it all, a family paper born in Boston, The Youths Companion, was a welcome touchstone in half a million homes across the nation. Featuring the voices of poets and presidents, reports on science and tales of travel, The Youths Companion not only promoted patriotism and temperance but educated and enlightened its readers about events, people, and places both near and far.
From the security of his home and office, reclusive publisher Daniel Sharp Ford quietly used his wealth to help thousands of disadvantaged people. None but The Best turns back the pages of time to reveal a man whose generosity has left its mark across Boston, New England and the nation.
Featuring original music by Daniel P. Ryan
