Students and faculty gathered in the Quad at Georgetown University to look at fire damage to Mulledy Hall

On the morning of February 27, 1947, a three-alarm fire swept through the upper floors of Mulledy Hall. A firefighter broke his leg while fighting the blaze but that, according to accounts in 'The Hoya,' was the only fire-related injury. Edmund A. Walsh, S.J., Regent of the Foreign Service School, returned to the burning building to rescue a large number of photostatic copies of Nuremberg trial documents. These were used in the writing of his book, 'Total Power: A Footnote To History,' published in 1949. The building was subsequently repaired and the fourth floor and roof were rebuilt, although to a different configuration.
