Volpe is kind of an overlooked figure in the process by which Italian-Americans were accepted as equal members of the Governing Class (sometimes called How Italians Became "White"), particularly as a Republican

(I often forget that Foster Furcolo, the force behind "renewing" Scollay Sq into Gov Center, was Mass' first Italian-American governor, just one term before Volpe)
