After the brief debate we had in class on Tuesday, I decided to see if I could find the origins of the term "angel investor." Unfortunately, all google told me was this:

It doesn't quite seem to fit with what Gary and Adam were saying, and I was wondering if anyone else found better information than I did!

Here's a couple of the sites I visited:
