Collection Overview

Collection Description & Creator Information


The collection consists, for the most part, of correspondence to Barnes (Princton Class of 1891) from friends and contemporary writers, most of whom are represented by one letter, such as Joseph Choate, William Lyon Phelps, and Edith Wharton; more correspondence exists for Poultney Bigelow, Robert Reid, and Booth Tarkington. Also included are carbons of some of Barnes's letters, a few documents, and his 3-page appreciation of Carlton T. Chapman. The rest of the collection comprises obituaries of Barnes's friends, memorabilia, and papers of other persons, highlighted by an inscribed photograph of Bigelow, a signed carbon of Joseph Jefferson Holland's "The Vanity of an Actor," and a copy of John Paul Jones's letterbook for 1778-1779.
