Anderson ('66) was reading the Boston Globe (I guess the NY Daily News was not
available) earlier this month and came across the story on the left about Pat
Purcell. There was something familiar about the face and name.
Sure enough, in the biographical sketch (which we've blown up), Jim realized
that this was Pat Purcell of MC '65 fame. Thanks for sharing this with
If Pat was proud to be mentioned in a small town New England
paper, imagine his thrill at being featured in a world-renowned web site.
Think nothing of it, Pat. It's our pleasure.
From the story:
"Today, Purcell, who bought the
Herald in 1994, is himself the head of a media conglomerate. It is an
empire that expanded dramatically in the past few months when he purchased,
for a reported $150 million, the Community Newspaper Company's stable of more
than 100 local papers."
150 MILLION BUCKS!!!
Hey, Pat, wanna buy an alumni web site
- let's talk.
