A plumber born in Boston, Massachusetts, Patrick J. Quinlan was a member of an independent local of plumbers prior to the founding of the UA. In 1889, he began corresponding with Richard A. O'Brien, Secretary of the Knights of Labor District Assembly 85, and Philip Grace, Editor of the Pipe Trades Labor Journal, The Rasp, with the intention of forming one, united organization in the pipe trades.
