The University of Kansas has been given an important set of papers by the estate of science fiction author Theodore Sturgeon. Sturgeon is well-known for his work on the television show "Star Trek" and his novel "More Than Human." His correspondence with writers including Isaac Asimov, Ray Bradbury and Harlan Ellison is included in the archive. His daughter and estate trustee Noël Sturgeon says she chose to give KU the papers in part because of the author's long-standing relationship with the university.
The Sturgeon papers, valued at more than $600,000, will be housed at the Kenneth Spencer Research Library on the KU campus.
