Michael Grumley papers, 1910-1988 (bulk 1963-1988).

The Michael Grumley Papers primarily contain his writings and supporting research material, with a small amount of personal correspondence and personal papers. More than half of the collection consists of his creative writings and drawings, spanning his college years through his career as a freelance author, many of which were not published during his lifetime. The collection holds files on Grumley's published work, including his one novel and his four books on the topics of Atlantis, Sasquatch, sadomasochism, and night workers, in addition to his columns and criticism for periodicals such as the New York Native and the Philadelphia Gay News. The papers also include his daily journals and engagement calendars.
