Biographical / Historical

Robert H. McNulty worked at the Smithsonian Institution’s National Museum of History and Technology (the forerunner to the National Museum of American History) in the 1960s and 1970s. He performed research on various sites in connection with archaeology projects in the urban renewal area of Alexandria.


Mr. McNulty had arranged the materials by subject; notes on particular areas were grouped together by street, and other notes were grouped by topic. This arrangement has been retained; the folder names in the collection have been taken from the original folders, which followed Mr.McNulty’s organizational scheme.
