Vincent Boles

(A biographical sketch from a Chester Times or Delaware County Daily Times newspaper clipping, "Know Your Police" from the collection of John C. "Snakes" Boyle, contributed by his granddaughters, Jane Boyle & Patty Boyle.)

Patrolman Vincent Boles, appointed to the Chester police force on October 10, 1938, says he is the first policeman of Lithuanian descent to join the force.

Boles, 40, formerly operated a tap room with his father at 4th and Caldwell Sts. On traffic duty for 13 years, five of them at 5th & Market sts., for the last two years he has been a patrol wagon driver.

Married to the former Anne Drungil, they have five children, Jacqueline, 18, Notre Dame graduate, William, 12, Smedley student, and David, 11, Gloria, 8, and Richard, 6, all at Morton School. They live at 610 E. 4th St.

Sports and old coins occupy his spare time.
