Hagstrum's personal and professional correspondence with Richard Ellmann, Paul Elmen, and Karl and William Olsson is of special interest. These letters deal with literary contributions and personal matters, and include comments on visits to various countries in Europe. The correspondence with Elmen and Olsson also includes many exchanges on literary criticism and religious matters. The folder titled "Great Men" includes letters to and from Stephen Spender, Chauncey Brewster Tinker, Geoffrey Keynes, and others. Hagstum's activities as a member and officer of the Modern Language Association are well documented by six folders of material. The course materials include primarily notes for lectures and some reading notes, reading lists, exam sheets, syllabi, and student papers. Several folders include copies of Hagstrum's notes to students assigning term or exam grades and explaining, often in some detail, why a particular grade was given.
