Starting with the careers of the earliest Irish who helped build Los Angeles; ranging from Andrew Boyle (memorialized in Boyle Heights) to William Mulholland (commemorated in Mulholland Drive), LMU’s Chancellor Michael Engh will explore how Irish industrialists, engineers, entrepreneurs, nuns, priests, and activists helped to shape Los Angeles. Tracing the many ways the Irish have contributed to the city, Professor Engh will ask whether it is time LA should be understood alongside Boston, Chicago, New York, and San Francisco as a city impacted by the Irish.
