Charles F. Hurley was the 54th Governor of Massachusetts and is the first Irish Governor of Massachusetts. He only served one term from January 7, 1937, to January 5, 1939. He represented the Democratic Party.
Since tomorrow is Saint Patrick's Day, I thought it would be interesting to learn more about Massachusetts first Irish Governor.
Obviously was named after the former Governor. It is the only monument/building to honor the former governor.
The painting in the hallway of the Massachusetts State House.
You can see the painting of Charles F. Hurley, and other Massachusetts governors at the Massachusetts State House. Charles F. Hurley painting is on the third floor between the Secretary of State office and the State Library. You have to go up the stairs and all the way in the back of the building.
I learned that the sitting Massachusetts Governor can put any hallway painting in the Executive Office. They decorate the office with paintings of past Governors that they admire.

I enjoyed this article about my grandfather. Another interesting fact is he was raised by the Salvation Army after his parents died, yet he went on to do great things for the state of Massachusetts.
