Tip O’Neill is subject of North Cambridge magazine

POPULAR “TIP’’: Since he began publishing the quarterly magazine “Growing Up in North Cambridge: A Journal of Stories of Years Gone By” in 2006, Stephen Surette of Arlington has attracted subscribers from 34 states and six  countries. But perhaps no other issue has garnered as much attention as the current edition, dedicated to “Our Tip O’Neill.”  

Born on Dec. 9, 1912, North Cambridge native Thomas Phillip O’Neill Jr.  was speaker of both the Massachusetts House of Representatives and the US House of Representatives. Considered one of the most influential leaders in 20th-century American politics, he died on Jan. 5, 1994.
