Hide Profile

A. M. Sullivan (1896-1980) was an American poet, radio broadcaster, editor and businessman. Spanning the years from 1925 to 1980, the Papers reflect Sullivan's dual career as businessman and poet. An advertising executive for Dun and Bradstreet, Inc., and later the editor of Dun's Review, Sullivan simultaneously maintained close ties with the literary world through a career as a radio broadcaster for the WOR-Mutual network's "New Poetry Program;" the publication of 13 books of poetry; and membership in the Poetry Society of America, which included five terms as its President. The Papers illuminate Sullivan's reconciliation of the two seemingly different aspects of his life, in which he urged upon fellow businessmen the need for ethics, humanitarianism and creativity in their lives, while bringing managerial skills and organizational talents to his literary endeavors.
