The Manuscripts Division houses the Laurence Hutton Papers (C0021) which includes the manuscripts of eleven of Hutton's stage and theater books, such as Actors and Actresses of Great Britain and the United States, Curiosities of the American Stage, Plays and Players, Portraits in Plaster, and four of his literary landmarks books, covering London, Oxford, Florence, and Scotland. Also included are many shorter works representative of Hutton's interest in collecting books, autographs, and death masks and of his work in the history of the theater. The papers include some of Hutton's correspondence, mainly from 1885-1895, several documents, photographs and illustrations, and some works on the theater written by other people. Bound volumes include letterbooks (1868-1904), clippings of Hutton's contributions to the press, and several volumes of family photographs.

In addition to the Laurence Hutton Papers, related correspondence and photographs are held in Laurence Hutton Correspondence (C0080), Laurence Hutton Letters to Edwin T. Evans (C0660), and Laurence Hutton Photograph Albums (C0937).
