For the Love of His Absent Son - Lloyd Hikell's Annual Dinner - 1926

PHOTO CAPTION: A year ago 7-year-old Lloyd Hikell disappeared with his mother from the home of his father, S. Hikell of Omaha, Neh. Search proved futile, and Hikell resolved to observe each yearly anniversary of their disappearance by playing host to orphan children. This picture shows him at the first anniversary, when he gave a dinner to 200 homeless youngsters.
