Tiny with his father, Butros Khaury, on Riverside Dr. in New York, in 1939. Tiny would have been eight years old. Tiny's real name is Herbert Khaury. Tiny came up with the fake middle name of "Buckingham", saying that he liked it because it had a royal sound to it! Tiny's father was from Lebanon. His mother Tillie was Jewish, and was from Poland. One of her sisters was killed in the holocaust. (Photo courtesy of Bernie Stein.)
