New York Pension Head Dead
Peter J. Quigley, chief of the division of pensions of the New York Fire Department, died last night in Bellevue Hospital where he was being treated for the past month for cancer. His health had sunk so low that a blood transfusion was ordered by Dr. Harry Archer of the fire department, but Mr. Quigley did not respond to the treatment.
He bad been in the service since 1899, serving in various departments. In 1904 he was appointed to the Fire Department relief Fund. By special act of the legislature in 1923 he received the rank of deputy chief in the uniformed force with the provision that his prior service in the civilian force be counted as time served in the uniformed force.
