JOHN WILLIAM MCCORMACK

21 December 1891 - 22 November 1980

 

 

Mr. McCormack served as a member of United States House of Representatives from 1928 until he retired from political life in 1971.

 

McCormack represented the interests of our district as congressperson in the United States House of Representatives and later served as Speaker of the same governing body. All during his time in the legislature, Mr. McCormack and his wife, Harriet, lived in Columbia Road at Edward Everett Square, within the geographic boundaries of our Civic Association.

 

He triumphed over the forces of bigotry and poverty. On 10th January 1962 he was elected Speaker of the House of Representatives where he proudly and vigorously promoted the progressive domestic programs of Presidents Kennedy and Johnson - programs that were designed to advance the interests of civil rights, education and healthcare.
