General Edward L. Logan

Boston Logan International Airport

Boston's airport is named in honor of Edward L. Logan, a first generation Irish American from South Boston whose family came from Ballygar, County Galway. Logan enlisted in the 9th Irish regiment, where his father Lawrence was Lieutenant Colonel, during the Spanish American War, and he commanded the 101st Infantry regiment during World War I. He served South Boston as representative and senator and was later appointed municipal judge. In 1943, when the state legislature approved a $4.75 million expansion, the airport was officially named in honor of Logan.
