Mystery Letters Solved

For years a Dodger Stadium door on the Club Level had the unusual string of letters spelling “MYOMACS” on it, puzzling fans who would walk by. The combination of letters, though, was no eye chart but the entrance to Walter O’Malley’s executive dining room.
The letters were strung together in recognition of O’Malley’s business lunches that he enjoyed while in Brooklyn’s Bossert Hotel at Room 40. Each day about 12:30 p.m., O’Malley and some of his top executives, civic leaders and other guests would walk from the offices at 215 Montague Street to the nearby hotel for lunch and meetings.
In honor of three of those regulars who spent so much time with him in Room 40, the unofficial moniker of the Dodger Stadium executive dining room, the letters were painted on the outside door. MYOMACS was really a combination of four names: Charles Mylod, O’Malley, Ed McLoughlin and Everett McCooey.
