Bill Brett
 From the dust cover of Bill Brett's book Boston, All One Family (Commonwealth Editions, 2005) -- Bill Brett started his news career hawking the Boston Globe on the street corners of his native Dorchester, Massachusetts. He first worked at the Globe as an eighteen-year old part-time photographer. In 1977 he was named chief photographer and in 1999 director of photography. The award-winning photographer retired from the Globe in 2001 but continues to contribute his work to the paper. His weekly "Party Lines" column was the inspiration for this book. He lives in Hignham, Massachusetts.
