This small collection contains
photographs of Noël Sullivan's Hollow Hills Farm in Carmel Valley, ca. 1948-1949
Noël Sullivan was born in San Francisco on December 25, 1890, the youngest child and only
son of Frank J. and Alice Phelan Sullivan, the nephew of Senator James D. Phelan, and the
grandson of John Sullivan who came west in 1844 with the "Sullivan-Murphy Party." The family
was a wealthy and distinguished one. Young Sullivan attended the Jesuit colleges of St.
Ignatius and Santa Clara, but his interests were musical, not academic. He studied voice
abroad and for a number of years maintained residence in Paris. During World War I he served
as an ambulance driver with the American Field Service in France.
