JohnMcGuire.pngMy maternal grandfather, John Michael McGuire, was a native of London and a lifelong resident. A bus operator with the London Street Railway for 25 years, he was also an executive member of the Amalgamated Association of Street Electric Railway and Motor Coach Employees of America, Local 741, and a delegate from that union to the Trades and Labor Council for approximately the same period. He was a president of the London Trades and Labor Council, and he made 3 unsuccessful but creditable bids for alderman in Ward Four.
