To the Editors:

In his review of Rosemary Ashton’s One Hot Summer [NYR, December 21, 2017], Tim Flannery errs in crediting Benjamin Disraeli with enactment of Jewish emancipation in 1858, a bit of myth-making that most of Disraeli’s many biographers indulge in and that he himself practiced wholesale. Disraeli entered Parliament in 1837, and one of his first votes was cast against Jewish emancipation. He really supported emancipation only once, in a famous speech in the 1847 debate that cost him politically; on the many occasions when a bill came before Parliament between 1837 and 1858, he did not speak at all or spoke against it, and sometimes voted for, sometimes against it. The public Disraeli differed from the private one, as he had to because his political standing, still perilous in 1858, would have been jeopardized by identifying himself with Jewish causes. In 1858 he did not participate in the debate, but played his part behind the scenes in the protracted maneuvers that went on for several months.

COMMENT: Cooney, Robert M. (MC1969) on Pannell


Cooney, Robert M. (MC1969) commented on JEMAIL: Abate, Bob (MC1981) shares
about Pannell, Tyrone[MC1964 RIP]
I ran track at the Prep when Ty was at the College. I saw him win the IC4A hurdles at MSG in a tremendous diving finish and then run up to Coach Eastman who was in the stands and hug him. Eastman was crippled by a back problem and the scene was touching. Ty had a car and gave me a lift to practice once which was a real thrill. He was a class act and his death was a shock.

JNEWS: O’Hagan, Patrick [MC1969] gets his ring back



Class ring lost on honeymoon surfaces on beach 47 years later

2017 08Aug 27 ring

*** begin quote ***

A Manhattan College grad lost his class ring while splashing around with his newlywed bride on Cape Cod nearly half a century ago — but miraculously got it back this week thanks to a beach scavenger with a metal detector.

“It’s really incredible luck; one coincidence after another,” Patrick O’Hagan, 70, of Holtsville, told The Post.
O’Hagan and his wife, Christine, were celebrating their honeymoon on the beach 47 years ago, when his ring fell off and sunk into the sea, he said.

“I lost my balance and I could feel it slip off my hand into three or four feet of water,” he said.
The couple spent hours looking for the jewelry — a $100 gift Christine bought for Patrick in 1969 — but eventually were forced to give up, he said.

*** and ***

He googled the name found “The Book of Kehls,” a 2005 memoir by Christine about the tragic death of her son.

“It was chapter nine, and it began: ‘I fell in love with Patrick O’Hagan,’” Wirth told the station. “So I knew that I had the exact person I needed to track down.”

*** and ***

The aging lovebirds celebrated their 47th wedding anniversary in June.

“This all brought back a lot of memories,” Patrick said.

He added, “It’s an amazing story. If you put it in a book, nobody would believe it was true.”

The Book of Kehls Paperback – February 7, 2006
by Christine Kehl O’Hagan (Author)

When Bridget Moore left Ireland in 1865, she never suspected that along with her trunk and rosary beads, she was bringing Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy to New York City. It wasn’t until Bridget was a grandmother, one who had buried four of her grandsons, that she realized she’d brought MD to the States, a disease that would haunt her family for generations. Years later, her great-grandchildren grew up under the elevated trains of Jackson Heights, Queens―and one of them was Christine Kehl O’Hagan, the author of this moving and insightful memoir.

Christine, her sister Pam, and their brother Richie played in the streets and attended mass every Sunday. But Richie had trouble walking. By the time he was diagnosed with muscular dystrophy, Christine learned that two of her mother’s brothers―uncles she’d never known about―had died of MD. Christine eventually married and had a healthy son. But one day she saw her second boy, Jamie, struggle to climb onto the school bus―and she knew knew then and there that this disease would be with her the rest of her life.

Extraordinarily written, with much honesty and humor, The Book of Kehls is the engaging story of a family that has known love, courage, and heartbreak in equal measure―and survived.
