Moakley Oral History Project OH-011
In this interview, John Lynch, a volunteer on Congressman John Joseph Moakley’s early campaigns, discusses his work on Moakley’s 1950 and 1952 campaigns for state representative; his friendship with Moakley from the 1950s until Moakley’s death in 2001; his memories of other friends of his and Moakley’s, as well as other Boston political figures; and Moakley’s feelings in the aftermath of the 1970 Garrity decision that called for forced busing of students in Boston. He also provides numerous anecdotes that give insight into Moakley’s character.
