Edward J. Flynn From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Born into a middle-class Irish family in the Bronx, Edward J. Flynn (1891-1953) rose to become one of the most influential Irish American political figures from 1920s to the 1950s. He earned his law degree at Fordham in 1912 and won election, with Tammany Hall’s backing, to the New York state assembly in 1917 and served through 1921. He later served as Bronx County Sheriff from 1922 to 1925. From 1922 to the time of his death he served as chairman of the Bronx Democratic organization. Known for his honesty and reform principles, he served as secretary of state and a trusted advisor to Franklin Roosevelt during the latter’s term as governor of New York State. In 1940 Roosevelt tapped him to be the Chairman of the Democratic National Committee.
