I originally read this in the fall of 2002.
John Quinn was an Irish American lawyer; lived in New York City; very early collector of impressionist art. He was a benefactor and almost an agent to William B. Yeats, arranging his American tours. Without the Man from New York, Yeats would not have achieved the reputation he has in the United States, and would have surely starved. Quinn also established the model by which Irish poets and authors have earned a living ever since.
