Biography

McGrath received the In Hoc Signo Award in 1976 for his contributions to recruiting during the 1950’s and 1960’s. He helped to organize and develop a number of alumni recruiters who were responsible for introducing numerous students to Holy Cross, including Hall of Famers Dick Berardino, Joe Wilson, Tom Hennessey, and Pat McCarthy. He was a prime mover in the origin and development of the O’Melia Dinner, and his job with the Boston Daily Record gave him a continuing opportunity to put news about the Crusaders in print.
