THOMAS C. MALLEY. A well equipped lawyer is serving his community well, while he often furthers his own interests. In their tangles and difficulties they come straight to the man they trust, whose clear thinking, wide knowledge, and humanity are put generously at their service. Thomas C. Malley has thus made himself invaluable in his home community of Springfield. Massachusetts. The son of James and Mary A. (Connelly) Malley, he was born in Springfield, Massachusetts, December 11, 1881, where his father was a merchant. His mother came from New Haven. Educated in the public schools of Springfield and in the Central High School there, he received the degree of Bachelor of Law from Yale University Law School with the class of 1910. He was admitted to the Massachusetts Bar in 1910, and immediately started practice with his brother, John F. Malley, a sketch of whom precedes, at No. 31 Elm Street, Springfield, Massachusetts. A Democrat, he was appointed a Special Justice of the District Court of Springfield by former Governor David 1. Walsh, in June, 1914, and served in that capacity for very nearly eleven years, during which time he threw the whole force of his heart and acute mind into his work and gave a model administration to the office. In January, 1925, however, he resigned in order that he might give his undivided attention to his law practice, in which he specializes to a large extent in tax matters. Mr. Malley is allied with the pleasantest and most progressive clubs of his city. Besides being a member of the Hampden Bar Association he belongs to the Western Massachusetts Yale Alumni Association, the Nayasset Club, the University Club, the Springfield Country Club, and of the Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks. In the matter of religion, he is of the Roman Catholic faith.
