  1. I am the Grandaughter of Michael Joseph Finnegan and he was one of the Police Officers involved in the strike. I would like to get involved having just seen the plan!
    Thank you, Jean Lamkin

  2. Hello, My name is Richard Felton. I am a retired DFC for the city of Boston Fire Department. My father was a member or the BPD, and his father and grandfather were also members of the BPD. I have been trying to do some research on their history, and would like to know where would be a good place to start. Any information would be helpful. Richard Felton
