In October, Tobin married Irene:PHalloran. Prior to 1922, Tobin lived in a $2.50 a day room at the Indianapolis Grand Hotel. For many years, the room served as his home away from home when he worked at the Teamster headquarters. Marrying Irene would allow Tobin the chance to put down some roots after more than a decade occupying his small room at the Indianapolis Grand Hotel. Life in Indianapolis no longer seemed a waiting game for his return home to Boston. Irene looked after son Joseph and daughter Katharine, the two youngest of the Tobin children, and joined the General President at union functions and political dinners with good friends John Gillespie and his new wife, Anne _ Gillespie, a founding member of the stenographers.
