Crooked Cronies: Philadelphia's Profiteering Politicians of the Past

Media Title

We will visit the grave of the Philadelphia patrician who realized that only a political boss could hold the unruly city together and then set out to become that boss. We will stand at the burial place of the Congressman who would have had one the largest monuments in Laurel Hill Cemetery if the treasurer of his memorial committee hadn’t run off with the funds. And, we will remember the scholarly historian who organized the predecessor to our modern-day Committee of Seventy.
