A TRIBUTE TO A WORTHY INSTITUTION AND ONE OF ITS GREATEST SUPPORTERS [Newspaper Article] — Vaudeville News — 8 April 1921

A TRIBUTE TO A WORTHY INSTITUTION AND ONE OF ITS GREATEST SUPPORTERS At the dinner given by the Vaudeville Managers Protective Association on Tuesday evening , March 22 , at the Plaza Hotel , one of our prominent theatrical managers , a little man with a big vision and plenty of energy , Aaron J . Jones , of the firm of Jones , Linick & Schaefer , called the managers attention to the work going on in Chicago at the American Hospital and asked for assistance from the New York end . I was amazed at the report Mr . Jones had compiled for the consideration of those interested in vaudeville . I know of no work that is more humane than that which Mr . Jones is doing in giving his time , his money and his energy in his endeavor to provide for the theatrical profession as a whole and not one branch of it , a place where sufferers from any physical cause can be cared for either without cost in cases where they cannot afford it or at a very nominal charge where they are able to pa...
