    Notes 
    • Eileen Murphy Breen was a very active communist. Gerard Devlin thinks that she was the Massachusetts Communist Party treasurer.

      Accoring to a Boston Globe article published on 28 Jan 1958, Eileen was said to have been a member of the Quincy branch of the Communist party in 1946; was the sponsor of the Paul Robeson concert in 1952; was author of a letter to Judge Medina requesting mistrail for Communist leaders; and was a member of the Committee to Secure Justice for the Rosenbergs. [5]
    • (Research):"I just remembered that when my uncle Monsignor Thomas Devlin was pastor in Cohasset and North Scituate, our cousin Eileen Murphy Breen, lived in the parish. Eileen was a very active Communist I think the was CP treasurer in MA.  Needless to say she was not active in the  church. Eileen Murphy Breen's daughter Joan was married to Sidney Lipshires." - Gerard Devlin, 26 Mar 2014
