BOX 66-127 Book Files, 1934-1997
This series comprises drafts, research files, book reviews, and marketing, advertising, and promotional materials, mostly for books authored by Sullivan. Correspondence in these files includes letters from subject matter experts who edited or reviewed drafts of manuscripts, permissions for book illustrations and art, and correspondence with publishers. The most documented books are Continents in Motion and Landprints, both of which contain extensive research files. Additional research files associated with Landprints are available in the Television and Radio Files series, which includes files regarding an unproduced television program of the same name. The files related to Quest for a Continent include many of the primary sources Sullivan accumulated during his early Antarctic expeditions, including files on Operation Highjump, and correspondence with Richard Evelyn Byrd, Paul Siple, and George J. Dufek. The files for We Are Not Alone contain many research files on the origin of human life and the search for extra-terrestrial intelligence. Book files featuring Sullivan as contributor include encyclopedia entries and essays on topics including physics, the International Geophysical Year, science fiction, and science in the Soviet Union. At the top of the series is an administrative file documenting contracts, sales figures, book projects, and publisher information.

Writings, correspondence, illustrations, photographs, posters, maps, galley proofs, research files, reviews, clippings, notes, contracts.
