John J. Flynn: A Charitable Man

In today’s video,, I share with you what was in John J. Flynn’s will, according to a 1940 Burlington Free Press article, which was written a few days after his death. 

John Flynn was born in Dorset, VT and moved to Burlington, VT.  He began working as a migrant farmer, rose to manager and would later become a one of Burlington’s largest landowners.  If you’re familiar with Flynn School, Flynn Avenue and even Flynn Theatre, you’re thinking of the right man!
