Correction o’ the Day (James Michael Curley Edition)

From Tuesday’s New York Times Corrections:

An article on Saturday about the controversial mayor of Lawrence, Mass., William Lantigua, erroneously attributed a distinction to James Michael Curley, a former Boston mayor, often compared to Mr. Lantigua, whose populist appeal helped him survive a felony conviction. Mr. Curley, who served four terms as mayor between 1914 and 1950, was Irish, but he was not the first Irish mayor of Boston. (The first was Hugh O’Brien, who served from 1885 to 1889.)

Okay. Just to be clear:

William Lantigua



James Michael Curley



Hugh O’Brien
