Francis W. Dahl Editorial Cartoons - Patrick McGinnis &
Patrick McGinnis was president of the New Haven Railroad and
the Boston & Maine Railroad from 1954 to 1956. McGinnis' many

the target of Francis W. Dahl's sharp pen. Dahl, Boston's cartoonist
laureate, worked for many years for the Boston Herald Traveler.
