The George A. Gullette Papers contain documents from the beginning and end of the NC State career of this social studies professor. There is correspondence from 1947 regarding the college's interest in hiring Gullette to commence its social studies program (beginning with a contemporary civilization course modeled on one at Columbia University). Gullette's responses give insight into salary negotiations of the time period. A Lecture Given by the Late George A. Gullette To a Class in Social Studies is a printed version of a talk Gullette gave at North Carolina State University on January 13, 1969. The title Gullette gave this lecture is Prospects for the Future--The Next Twenty-Five Years. On March 19, 1970, the Friends of the Library distributed copies of the lecture at its annual banquet. In addition, portions of the lecture were read at Gullette's memorial service.
