I'm in the process right now of working with the Knox College Special Collections in Galesburg and working my way through the Ida Tarbell papers. I know that there are well over 30 letters between Sandburg and Townsend (going both directions) in the Sandburg papers in Urbana. I wonder if there are more in Lexington (which is where Townsend's papers are located, is it not?).

By the way, please remember me to Kim Bauer. Not only was Kim an integral part of the old ALO mailbag, but he and I are products of that great establishment of learning, Eastern Illinois University, known to many as Harvard on the Embarrass (which, for those unaware, is pronounced EM ber ah).


Yes, there are Townsend papers at the King Library at University of Kentucky. There may be some at the Filson Club - not sure. I am not even sure the ones at UK are organized. They were just piled in boxes a few years ago.
I will remind Kim next time I speak to him. I sent an email and asked him to make an appearance or two here. Hopefully, he will join in the conversations.
