Mostly fjorgotten in the history of the Brooklyn Dodgers is the role played by the McKeever and Mulvey families who were originally co-owners and until 1975 25% owners of the Dodgers. The O'Malley family bought out the last 25%

"Judge Steve McKeever" - and his brother Ed were good owners. When Steve passed away his daughter Dearie Mulvey and her husband James Mulvey inherited and were loyal to the Dodgers as minority owners.

The McKeevers were wealthy from their construction business. James Mulvey, like O'Malley, was a financial guy comfortable as president of Goldwynn (movies).

The McKeevers lived on Maple Street which was considered millionaires row - the Todd shipyard owners lived there as did my grandmother's uncle Pat McDermott. Mc Keever Place is still there as a reminder of Ebbets Field. The neighborhood is called Prospect Lefferts Garden now.
