Day 193


July 10th, 2012

Name-checked in the NY Times's obituary about John McNamara, the "Sage of the Bronx"


  1. Michael in Atlanta says:

    Nice obit. The kind of guy we should all aspire to be.

  2. Gigi says:

    “Mr. McNamara, who was a Cub Scout leader and volunteer fireman, wanted to be remembered as a historian for the 20th century. So he stopped writing on Dec. 31, 1999.”

    Wow, writing until he was 87 years old! I’m glad Mr. McNamara shared his knowledge of the area with everyone all these years.

  3. Melody in Oklahoma says:

    So, Matt is this Century’s Mr. McNamara?
