Examples of such materials are the papers of Ross Lockridge, Director of the Indiana Federal Writers' Project (1936-1938); Gilbert Coble's journals and his correspondence with Jesse Stuart; Warren N. Cordell's papers on book collecting and lexicography; Mitford Mathews's personal papers and various writings on language and lexicography, particularly American regional English; Fredrick Bunce's research materials on Aretino and related material; and Civil War correspondence, including George Gegner's letters to his future wife, Lizzie Wayman (temporarily in PDF format); and Clyde Fitch's plays as performed in bound typescripts. Additionally, some manuscripts are contained in cataloged items.
