In 1953 my grandfather, with the help of my mother, wrote: "My Story" which appeared in a three part series in Collier Magazine.  In the article, my grandfather talks about his ancestors and the extended Sullivan family.  He also talks about how he was raised with the strictest moral integrity. 

"Our parents taught all of us to respect the rights of all people, Sullivan says. They taught us to respect the rights of the underdog; they taught us that all people come from God are destined to go back to God, and they agreed that every race and creed had its shameful parts....Throughout the family on both sides, there was a strong streak of pride and self-reliance, inspiring patriotism and a great feeling for people and a great understanding of their problems.
