Boston’s Mayor James Michael Curley: The Quintessential Politician & Public Works Patron

12:00 PM - 1:00 PM
Lawrence Overlan

James Michael Curley was perhaps the most prolific politician in Massachusetts history. In honor of the 100th anniversary of his first election as Mayor of Boston, this talk will highlight the building of public works in Boston during his time in office. Parks, police and fire stations, public schools, transit expansion, hospitals, beaches and public art erected during his tenure abound in Boston and provide comfort, beauty and long term significant economic benefits for visitors and Bostonians alike.

Lawrence Overlan has been researching, teaching, speaking and writing about James Michael Curley for over a decade.
