Josiah Quincy


Statue of Josiah Quincy in front of the Old City Hall. Josiah Quincy (1772-1864) was mayor of Boston, a municipal court judge, and a president of Harvard College.

You can see the house he grew up in, in Quincy, Massachusetts here.

I fell in love in front of that statue ... once. Great shot! Love that old building too.

You know, you kind of wonder who in public life today will "deserve" a statue at some point....
