Ink note (unknown hand): Sheraton Plaza, March 18, 1957. ROBERT BRISCO (1894-1969), who generally went by Bob, fought with the Irish Republican Army in the Irish War of Independence, and on the anti-treaty side in the ensuing Irish Civil War. He traveled with future President Eamon de Valera on his visit to the US. A member of parliament for the Fianna Fail Party (1927-1965), he served twice as Lord Mayor of Dublin (1956-1957, 1961-1962). Drawing on his IRA experience, he helped train and equip the Irgun during the struggle for Israeli independence. The visit shown here elicited one of Yogi Berra's famous "Yog-isms." Informed that Dublin had a Jewish Lord Mayor, Yogi replied, "Only in America!"
