We are saddened to learn of the passing of former speaker of the house, attorney general, and chair of the UMass Board of Trustees Robert H. Quinn. From his involvement in the establishment of UMass Boston in 1964, to his leadership of the UMass Board of Trustees, Quinn’s commitment to public higher education played a crucial role in the history, growth, and success of UMass Boston.

We looked through our University Archives Historic Photographs collection and found the above photograph from 1998 of then-Massachusetts State Representative (and current Mayor of Boston) Martin Walsh with Robert Quinn at the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum.

We’ve been digitizing photographs from our University Archives since early in 2013 in anticipation of UMass Boston’s 50th anniversary celebrations and we’re certain that more images of Quinn will come along.
