Kevin McNulty and Bruce Crooks discuss Pat O'Brien

Kevin McNulty

Kevin McNulty is an author of numerous books about Momence. He first published "Around Momence" in 2007. His books on Momence native and WWI hero, Lt. Pat O'Brien, are the definitive work on the life of the most famous WWI war hero. In 2014, McNulty published the photo book "Barns of Kankakee County", and in 2015 he published his story about growing up in Momence entitled "A Kid from Momence...Growing up after the War". He has also re-published books by other authors. Kevin has a diverse background in business, music, and publishing. He is a frequent speaker on history, business, and music education.

This year, he'll be at the Depot on Heritage Day with a large screen video monitor showing many not previously seen photos of Historic Momence. He will also have Pat O'Brien materials including the VIDEO of "Travel Channel's" broadcast on "Mysterious of the Museum" about Pat's Book and Momence. There will be other historical books including the reprint of Kay Hess' history book on Momence complete with 173 photos (all enhanced with Photoshop - software available at the time of her first printing). Finally, Phyllis Munyon has been working hard at the Depot for some time now. She has added some items. If you've never seen the Depot that Bill created - it's well worth the visit. The walls are covered with photos of Momence Veterans going back decades.
