Biographical / Historical

According to Eulogy given by Br. Matthew Moloney FSC Brother Anthony Lamb was born in Scotland and immigrated to New York City. He was proud to be born in Scotland, proud to be American, and proud to be a Christian Brother. He was a tall, slim, bony boy when he entered his sophomore year at Barrytown, New York.

However, his interest in drama, music, and the arts developed in college. He developed a great reputation for his essays and paintings.

I considered him my friend as a person and fellow Christian Brother. Brother Michael Fitzgibbon says much better than I, and I quote: "I hesitate to call Tony a special friend of mine. Those of you who knew him well understand that Tony made all of his friends feel special. Tony was an extremely talented man, a sincerely remarkable religious, a top notch teacher, and an outstanding athlete. He was gently in speech and had a wonderful sense of humor. Yes, I'd say he was one of the princes among us. Let us thank the Lord for lending us Tony. ... Friday night poker games were the occasion of his flair for puns and teasing, especially with his slowness to reveal his measly two pair. ... A gentleman sans pareille, he bore within himself a rock-like faith, entrusting himself even in these later days, when he uttered, "Whatever God wants..."
