Posted on: May 5, 2021

“Dale Archer McNulty, a longtime resident who served as president of the board of the Palm Beach Symphony, died Monday, April 26, surrounded by his family. He was 79,” writes Shannon Donnelly in Thursday’s (4/29) Palm Beach Daily News (FL). “Born May 9, 1941, in New York … Mr. McNulty grew up in Palm Beach…. After graduating from Fairfield University in Connecticut, he had a nearly 40-year career as a member of the New York Stock Exchange. During his time in New York City, he was president of the Blue Hill Troupe theatrical company, where his physical presence as ‘the very model of a modern major general’ won him roles in its many Gilbert and Sullivan productions. He was an ardent music lover and supported the Palm Beach Symphony…. He would later become president of the symphony board. In addition to his home in Palm Beach, he also reclaimed a U.S. Army hospital on Cushing’s Island in Maine and transformed it into a summer retreat. More recently, Mr. McNulty was … active in charitable affairs and served as a chairman for multiple fundraisers.” McNulty is survived by his wife, Marietta, a sister, four children, and two stepsons.
