It was founded on Howard street, near Third, in 1886. One year later Rev. D. C. Crowley took charge and soon secured the necessary funds with which to erect a four-story building on a lot situated between Seventeenth and Eighteenth streets on Howard. Many merchants and professional men will attest as to the character of the boys they are fortunate enough in securing from the directory. The fact that they are not permitted to go out at night makes them in great demand. This applies to the free employment bureau connected with the institution, through which many boys up to 16 years of age secure positions during the year. " (from Wikipedia). Very Good+ .
