Thomas P. O'Neill, Jr., known as "Tip" to nearly everyone (but not to his wife, Millie, to whom he was "Tom"), was very much a man of North Cambridge, born and bred.   He famously never forgot where he came from.   But he also came to love Cape Cod.   His work on behalf of the Cape Cod National Seashore was one of his proudest achievements.
