Joseph Thomas Sullivan

J. T. SULLIVAN is a miner of the Nome country who has valuable interests on Daniel's Creek. He is a native of Minnesota and was engaged in mining before coming to Alaska. He was superintendent of a quartz mine near Rossland, British Columbia, and has had wide practical experience both as a placer and quartz miner.

He went to Dawson in 1897, and came down the Yukon to Nome. His most successful mining venture has been the result of locations on No's 2 and 3 Daniel's Creek by himself and his partner, Jacob Berger. This property has been successfully operated.

Mr. Sullivan is a man who shrinks from publicity, and I am taking the liberty of writing this brief sketch without his knowledge or consent. His valuable interests in the mines of Seward Peninsula entitle him to mention in this work. He is an aggressive, practical young man of good business methods and commendable character. He has many friends in Nome who esteem him as a companionable associate generous impulses.
