Series 3: Writings and Speeches, encompasses a wide array of works, each of which is identified by title in the folder list, and illustrates the breadth of Lansing's interests. The material in this series, much of which was unpublished, ranges from patriotic calls to arms, such as the "Address Before the Reserve Officers' Training Corps," to scholarly treatments of historical subjects, such as "The Hebrew Kingdoms: A Brief Account of their Origin, Political Development and Relations to Other Nations," to whimsical verses, such as "English Spelled and Spoken." Lansing even turned his hand to children's stories in "Real Boys." His ability to combine fiction and nonfiction is demonstrated in "Letters of Cornelius," a collection of missives from a rough spoken doughboy detailed to the American Commission to Negotiate Peace. Lansing's private and public treatment of events to which he was a party or phenomena to which he was a witness are insightful and fill gaps which exist in other series.
