About

Cornelius Maloney founded a number of Democratic newspapers in Waterbury, Connecticut in the latter part of the nineteenth century. Maloney was part of the first wave of Irish immigrants who arrived in Waterbury during the early 1830s; by the 1880s, the Irish comprised about half of the city population. By this time, the Irish had largely overcome discrimination from the Protestant community and were establishing themselves as a formidable force in local politics. Maloney served as a Democratic Representative in the Connecticut General Assembly in 1887 and 1888.
