DF Digital Files, 1980-1993
The digital files include writings, draft copies of articles, draft correspondence, and documents related to the proposed “Landprints” television program. The bulk of the series contains Sullivan’s memoir drafts, recounting such experiences as expeditions to Antarctica, his service in the Navy during World War II, and time spent as a foreign correspondence in China, Korea, and Berlin. The series also includes files for "Terra Mobilis," a continental drift modeling program. At the time of processing many of the text file formats were inaccessible through available software. Files were most likely created on a WaveMate Bullet computer with a Control Program/Monitor (CP/M) operating system. This computer and these operating systems were popular in the late 1970s and early 1980s. As a result, these raw versions of the files do not appear as intended in their original hardware and software environments, and often include altered formatting and extraneous characters. Files can be opened with a text editor such as Notepad. Request files using the Digital ID.
Arranged and described according to the series and subseries of the physical materials.
