Insurance Men Honor Brophy

Commissioner John J. McElligott of the New York Fire Department, on behalf of the Board of Directors of the New York Board of Fire Underwriters, presented engrossed resolution to Thomas P. Brophy, Fire Marshal of New York City. In a short speech in which he thanked the insurance men for the honor bestowed, Mr. Brophy said that his department should be even more successful under Commissioner McElligott, because an appropriation had been obtained for necessary office expenses.

Mr. Brophy was appointed Assistant Fire Marshal in May, 1907, and in July, 1915, was advanced to Chief Fire Marshal. The resolution stated that “he has the unique distinction of holding public office for more than a quarter of a century without ever having one word of criticism of any kind or character directed against him, and with the commendation of each Fire Commissioner under whom he has served.
