    Isaac Raboy

    Jew Score:



    1882 – January 8, 1944

    Take a look at the man pictured. Studious, isn't he? Writing something important... He's gotta be Jewish, right?

    Right. No major surprises here.

    That man is Isaac Raboy, a writer... but he was more than just a writer. Isaac Raboy was also a cowboy.

    How is that for a surprise?

    Raboy worked at a hat factory in New York, but then decided he needed some open space. So he moved to the openest space of them all — North Dakota (thus making him the first and last Jew to ever set foot in North Dakota). There, he became a cowboy, working on a horse ranch.

    However, he didn't there for long, moved back to New York and wrote about his experiences in a novel, "The Yiddish Cowboy".

    A Jewish writer who tried to be a cowboy but quickly returned to being a writer?

    Nothing surprising...

    Verdict: Jew.
