BOX 19-66 Correspondence, 1948-1995
This series comprises letters among Sullivan, colleagues, friends, and leaders in various scientific fields including Victor Frederick Weisskopf, Carl Sagan, and Arthur C. Clarke. Many relate to his professional career as an author, lecturer, and science editor and correspondent for the New York Times. Also includes letters from readers, fans, individuals seeking employment, and many unsolicited articles, essays, and opinion pieces submitted to Sullivan in his capacity as science editor. Memoranda at the New York Times document Sullivan’s role as science editor and include interactions with staff members Turner Catledge, A. M. Rosenthal, C. L. Sulzberger, and Malcolm W. Browne. Subject files contain letters and memoranda from when Sullivan was traveling or on assignment, letters from publishers, and materials related to science coverage. In keeping with the original order, incoming and outgoing letters with individual correspondents are oftentimes grouped together and filed according to the date of the most recent letter. There is no family correspondence in the collection.

Letters, memoranda, itineraries, wire reports, telegrams, cables, invitations, postcards, and various attachments.
