Abstract:

The papers are entirely professional including a small amount of correspondence, teaching materials, unpublished speeches and writings, copies of his published works, subject files and notes. Wimsatt's teaching materials, which contain bibliographies, notes on his readings, and outlines for class presentations, make up more than half of the papers. Copies of almost all of Wimsatt's published work together with the related correspondence are also in the papers.

His advocacy of the New Criticism and his prominent place in American literary criticism drew letters from Monroe C. Beardsley, Northrop Frye, Marshall McLuhan, I.A. Richards, Allen Tate and René Wellek. There are a few biographical items, his own student notes and papers, but no personal papers. His interest in Catholic affairs is represented by some miscellaneous correspondence and items in the subject files.
