Project Consulting, 1970-1984 and undated

 Series 2

Tedd McCann worked on a number of projects as a consultant during his career. This series documents his work on three of these: the Man in Space project, which focused on the preservation of sites related to space travel; the Marine Corps Historical Center in Quantico, Virginia; and Rockefeller Estate in Pocantico Hills, New York.

The bulk of this series contains information on Kykuit, the name the Rockefellers gave to their estate on the Hudson River. McCann took a leave of absence from the National Park Service in 1971 to work on the project and developed a close working relationship with the Rockefeller family. Although the National Park Service showed interest in making Kykuit a part of the park system, asking McCann to conduct site visits and draft a number of reports related to the estate, it was instead deeded to the National Trust for Historic Preservation. Included in these files are correspondence with park planners and the family, studies of the estate, and a Rockefeller family history dating back to the early twentieth century. There is also a folder of material related to Nelson Rockefeller and a bulletin from his funeral in 1979 that is of interest.

The arrangement is alphabetical by project name or topic. Photographs and slides originally included with this series have been placed in Series IV and V.
