There are also drafts and a page proof of the manuscript, as well as correspondence with the publisher, Louisiana State University Press.

The collection consists of four series: Series I: Copies of Robert Penn Warren Correspondence; Series II: Edited Correspondence Transcriptions, with notes from the editors; Series III: Drafts of Selected Letters of Robert Penn Warren: Triumph and Transition, 1943-1952; and Series IV: Other Papers, which includes correspondence with the publishers. Most of the material dates from between 2004 and 2006. The original Robert Penn Warren correspondence, which is photocopied and included in the collection, dates from 1941 to 1952, though the copies and edits by the publishers date from 2004 to 2006.
