Maurice Tobin Statue

Charles River Esplanade at Hatch Shell

Born in Roxbury's Mission Hill, Maurice Tobin (1901-53) was the son of immigrants from Clogheen, Tipperary. He became the youngest state representative at age 25, and was viewed as a liberal crusader in an era of conservative State House politics. In 1937 he made a surprise run for mayor against his mentor, James Michael Curley, and won. Tobin defeated Curley again in 1941 and in 1944 successfully won his bid to become Governor of Massachusetts (1944-46).

Sculptor Emilius R. Ciampa created the Tobin Memorial Sculptor in 1958.
