Papers of Legendary 'Star Trek' Writer Donated to KU | Arts & Culture
A treasure trove of private letters, manuscripts and other papers by one of the most influential writers of the golden age of science fiction — who, along with Leonard Nimoy, is credited with inventing the “live long and prosper” Vulcan phrase for “Star Trek” — has been donated to the University of Kansas.
The definitive collection of the late author Theodore Sturgeon’s books, papers, manuscripts and correspondence will be established at the Kenneth Spencer Research Library at KU, which also is home to the Center for the Study of Science Fiction. The Sturgeon Award for the best short science fiction is given annually at the center’s Campbell Conference, which this year runs July 7-10.
