Scope and Contents

The Sports Illustrated Editorial Records are primarily correspondence from senior editorial staff to place articles or excerpts from outside writers. Outside writers include those from other magazines (sometimes other Time Inc. magazines), freelancers, and some amateurs. Files do not always have correspondence from the writer and may only contain internal correspondence regarding their article or excerpt. Topics include story ideas, submissions, the logistics of publishing accepted articles, and payment amounts. There is a small amount of administrative records. The majority of correspondence comes from Senior Editor Patricia "Pat" Ryan. Her records also include the Text Department's financial records. This seems to be the department in charge of reviewing submitted manuscripts.


The collection is organized into four series based on the hierarchy of staff:

Series I. Managing Editor Mark Mulvoy Copy of Strategic Plan

Series II. Assistant Managing Editor and Senior Editor Ray Cave Files

Series III. Senior Editor Patricia Ryan Files

Series IV. Associate Editor Joseph Carroll Correspondence
