How the Phrase "Kilroy Was Here" got Started
It was during the sad days of WWII that Jim Kilroy started chalking his slogans at a shipyard near Boston. Jim was the original Kilroy. He was "Kilroy was here!" No doubt about that.
However, in the autumn of 1948 he was just plain James J. Kilroy, a 46-year-old shipyard worker from Halifax, MA and he was trying to figure out how to get enough money to buy his nine children some Christmas presents. No matter how hard or how long a day a man may work, there never seems to be enough money around Christmas when there are nine children in the house.
"The Transit Company of America was running a contest in 1948," recalled Mrs. Margaret Kilroy Fitzgerald, the oldest of the nine children. "They wanted to locate the man who started the famous "Kilroy was here" slogan… and the prize was a trolley car!
"My father wrote a letter to the Transit Company of America to tell his story, and his claim was checked out. He was thoroughly investigated, and the people running the contest announced that, without a doubt, he was the original Kilroy."
In his letter to the contest judges, Kilroy wrote that he started to work for Bethlehem Steel Company at Fore River Shipyard in Quincy, MA on December 5, 1941. However, it was when he was appointed "a rate setter" that he was inspired to write his now celebrated slogans.
In his letter he wrote: "I spent most of my time carefully surveying every inner bottom and tank before issuing a contract. I was thoroughly upset to find that practically every test leader I met wanted me to go down and look over his job with him, and when I complained to him that I had already checked out the job and could not spare the time to crawl through one of those tanks again with him, he would accuse me of not having looked the job over at all. I was getting sick of being accused of not looking the jobs over, and one day, as I came through the man-hole of a tank I had just surveyed, I angrily marked in crayon on the tank top, where the tester could see it, "Kilroy Was Here!" The following day, a test gang leader approached me with a grin on his face, and said 'I see you looked my job over…'"
