Larry Paul has enjoyed a 35-year career designing displays, exhibits, and retail appliance stores for Baltimore Gas & Electric Co, during which he started a collection of gas and electric appliances from pre-1900 to the 1990s for use in exhibits. Following retirement, he has operated as a designer of exhibits for the Baltimore Museum of Industry, a cataloguer, and an antiques dealer. His interest in hotels has lead to a database of histories and information about almost 7,000 19th- and 20th-century American hotels.
