This collection documents, via correspondence, newspaper clippings and photographs, the professional and volunteer career of Italian-American Bronxite Nicholas J. Falco, born in East Harlem in 1929 and raised in Mott Haven. Falco was perhaps the first Italian American to work in the New York City Municipal Archives. Series III documents his efforts to publish a compilation of articles from the the Society of American Archives quarterly American Archivist.
The other two Series document his passion for Italian-American history and community. The Italian-American History Research Series contains clippings he found interesting or hoped to save for another project. The Italian-American Times Series contains materials he generated as a book reviewer and editor (1971-72) at the BronxItalo-American Times.
