Todd McKay was a resident of southern California who composed music. The collection consists mostly of his compositions but
also includes a number of photographic negatives and a small amount of personal papers.
Todd McKay may have been born Mansell McKalip. Around 1937, he appears to have moved from Tarentum, PA, near Pittsburgh, to
Los Angeles. He composed music, though there is no evidence that any of it was recorded or published. He may have worked for
Paramount Pictures for a time. He retired in the Santa Barbara area.
