Starter Bibliography of Publications on Michael J. Harrington, Old North Neighbor at 721 7th Street (274)

717 7th Street (Davis Enterprise Photo)
Davis aviation attorney Michael J. Harrington, who lives at 721 7th Street, is among the most prominent public figures in Davis. 

As a resident on our northern OId North border, he is surely the most famous Old North resident/proximate inhabitant (especially after Mike Corbett moved north from our northern border).

Because of this combined proximity and fame, it is only respectful to give appropriate attention on this blog to publications on and about him.

A full and professional bibliography is beyond my resources at this time, but I thought it might be helpful if I at least started a collection of items that ought to be included in a future and more systematic effort.

This post consists of three recent publications that feature him. A separate "starter" collection of items (and links to them) also appears at:

The first of these three publications provides an overview of Mr. Harrington’s legal activities with regard to the City of Davis, focusing on actions directed to his next door neighbor at 717 7th Street.

Theft From An Old North Porch, Sunday Before Dawn, October 8 (272)

Just before 5:00 AM Sunday morning, October 8, 2017, a male dressed in an orange, quilted jacket and yellow shorts went onto the porch of an Old North home and stole an array of items. 

He walked in front of an operating surveillance video camera and his activities are shown here:*

If you recognize this person, phone the Davis police at 530-547-5400 and tell them your call is about case # 17-3878 handled by Officer David Dudley.

* I might mention that Youtube videos can be played full screen, zoomed, at very slow speeds, and paused. The person in the video has a distinctive "loping" "walk," or "gait" that is not seen in still pictures
