James M. Quinn '52
a brotherhood for bc
Paul Quinn, his late brother James M. Quinn, a member of the class of 1952, and their sister, Sister Francis Timothy, were closer than most siblings. As adults, Paul and Jim shared a family home in the Jamaica Plain area of Boston, as well as a passion for Boston College. Ardent fans of BC athletics, Jim and Sister Francis attended every home football game for 25 years.
“Even though I didn’t attend BC, I always felt a part of the BC family,” says Paul. Paul served as executor of his brother, James Quinn’s, estate. The James M. Quinn ’52 Scholarship Fund is funded by a bequest from the estate, and has been awarded to Jeremy Yancey ’09 for the past two years.
“Jim would be thrilled to see students like Jeremy have the chance to prosper at BC as he did,” says Paul.
