John Collins Bossidy

John Collins Bossidy (1860–1928) was an American graduate of Holy Cross College who, at a 1910 dinner, offered a toast famously poking fun at Boston's "Brahmins":

  • And this is good old Boston,
    The home of the bean and the cod.
    Where the Lowells talk only to Cabots,
    And the Cabots talk only to God.
