The Manuscripts Division holds a collection [(MSS) C0172] which documents his long literary career. Approximately 10,000 letters between Torrence (Princeton Class of 1897), his family and friends, plus manuscripts of his work and those of his literary friends, exist in the collection. In addition, there are documents, scrapbooks, diaries, report cards from Torrence's Miami College (Oxford) and Princeton University days, daguerreotypes and photographs, memorabilia, and genealogical records, some dating as early as 1833. Represented in his personal and editorial correspondence are most of the important literary figures of his time, including Robert Frost, Vachel Lindsay, William Vaughn Moody, and Edward Arlington Robinson.
