Allen's career, both as a professor and Whitman scholar, is documented in several series. The Walt Whitman Materials Series and the Scrapbooks Series relate to his Whitman research. In the former series the Commemorations and Societies Subseries and the Popular Culture Subseries also document the ever increasing interest in Whitman's life and works during the twentieth century. The Correspondence Subseries and the Pictures Subseries contain copies of letters and pictures relating to Whitman and his age. The Correspondence Subseries also contains extensive letters concerning Allen's early teaching career, his dealings with several presses, and the marketing and reception of his THE SOLITARY SINGER, A WHITMAN BIOGRAPHY.
