Maurice Tobin Statue
Maurice Tobin is yet another ground breaking Irish-American politician in Boston’s history. Born in Boston in 1901, Tobin became Massachusetts’ youngest state congressman in 1927, at the age of 25. He went on to win two mayoral elections against James Michael Curley and later became the governor of Massachusetts in 1944. The statue of Tobin, created in 1958, can be found near the Hatch Shell on the Esplanade.
