Frank T. Boyle

FRANK T. BOYLE

Of the staff of the Bethlehem Times, covering the large South Side territory, was born thirty-four years ago at Redington, the site of the Bethlehem Steel Company's munition plant, a son of Rose and the late Andrew Boyle. He began work with the Times as a copy and messenger boy, after spending a year in the South Bethlehem High School, where on his birthday, February 13, 1899, he was presented with a gold medal pin by the New York Life Saving Benevolent Association for highly meritorious bravery in saving a girl from drowning in the Lehigh Canal. The presentation was made a pleasing feature of exercises held in commemoration of Lincoln’s Birthday. From the office he went to the pressroom and learned the trade. When P.F. Enright was elected to the assembly in 1902 he took up reporting work for the Times and later when the Allentown Democrat became a daily he "covered" the entire city for its owners, after spending four years with the Philadelphia North American where he was employed in the press room as tension man on their large sextuple presses. He also had the honor of being one of the tension men on the first big octuple press installed for this company. With Mr. Shankweiler he compiled the material for the Men of Bethlehem.
