  For Boston, for Boston,
  We sing our proud refrain!

  For Boston, for Boston,
  'Tis widsom's earthly fane.

  For here all are one, and
  their hearts are true, and
  The towers on the Heights
  reach to Heaven's own blue.

  For Boston, For Boston,
  Till the echoes ring again!

John J. McMullen Dies at Age 87

John J. McMullen, a former BC trustee, McMullen Museum benefactor, and former owner of the New Jersey Devils hockey franchise and the Houston Astros baseball team, died at his home in Montclair, NJ this past Friday at the age of 87.

As reported by The Heights, McMullen made a donation to the McMullen Museum in 1996 in memory of his parents, for whom the museum is named. His son, Peter, is enrolled at the University, according to Rev. J. Donald Monan, S.J., who was good friends with McMullen.

The New York Times offers a tribute to John McMullen:
John McMullen was a man of his word. If he said something, if he took a position on something, he could be counted on to stick to it. He did not go back on his word.
Thank you, John McMullen, for your contributions to Boston College, and the world.
