Danny Thomas's first audiences on Detroit radio knew him as Amos Jacobs, the anglicized form of his Lebanese birth name. His CBS radio show in the late 1940s made him nationally known, but he is best known as a television producer and star, and especially for his long running sitcom, Make Room For Daddy.In the early 1950s Thomas began to fulfill a promise made during his financially precarious Detroit years. Mobilizing fellow entertainers, the city of Memphis, Tennessee, and the American public, he built St. Jude Children's Research Hospital for children with catastrophic diseases. Thomas also founded the ALSAC, a charity through which his fellow Arab Americans and others continue to support the hospital.
