Buddy Sullivan - Coastal Georgia Historian/Lecturer, Researcher, Consultant
The Buddy Sullivan Papers
 
In February 2012, my collection of research materials and assorted archival documents and maps accumulated from 25 years of investigations into the history of coastal Georgia was placed on deposit in the archives of the Georgia Historical Society, Savannah. These materials have subsequently been processed by the archival staff of the GHS and are now available for research in the Hodgson Hall Library at the GHS by historians, genealogists and the general public. I intend to add more materials to the collection as they accumulate from my research in new projects. Among the papers and materials in the collection now are those covering the following aspects of coastal history (among many others):
