Find out on Saturday, December 7, when the New York Irish History Roundtable and Glucksman Ireland House present “Tammany & the New York Irish” with Dr. Terry Golway.

Golway, director of the the Center for History, Politics and Policy at Kean University, will discuss the many facets of Tammany Hall. In his presentation, Golway will demonstrate how Tammany helped create basic social reforms, including minimum wage regulations, workers compensation and child labor laws.

Golway is the author of Irish Rebel: John Devoy & America’s Fight for Irish Freedom and For the Cause of Liberty: A Thousand Years of Ireland’s Heroes. His latest book – Machine Made: Tammany Hall and the Creation of Modern American Politics will be published in 2014 by W.W. Norton.

The talk will begin promptly at 2 p.m. at NYU’s Glucksman Ireland House, which is located at One Washington Mews (Fifth Avenue & 8th Street). Refreshments will follow. Suggested donation: $3.00

Author Terry Golway and upcoming NY Irish History Roundtable speaker was quoted in Sunday's NY Times, in an article "Once a Temple of Corruption, Now a Landmark." The article describes the history of Tammany Hall and the landmark status recently given to the building on East 17th Street.
