This series contains Williams's hand-written notes as well as annotated typescript and manuscript fragments, clippings, and correspondence related to his study of the life and work of George Gray Barnard. It appears as though some of the notes are from Williams's many interviews of Barnard conducted probably in late 1937 or early 1938. There is also a questionnaire written by Williams and answered by Barnard, which has been broken up with pages scattered throughout many folders, as noted in the folder titles. Folders containing pertinent and specific information, including an outline for the biography and transcriptions of George Grey Barnard's personal correspondence, are filed first. Researchers are encouraged to review all of the folders, as Williams notes are jumbled with many topics appearing on one page and throughout folders.
Series IV. Working notes
All folders documenting specific topics are filed first. The last 30 folders contain assorted material and are in original order. Those containing annotations or other papers written by George Grey Barnard are noted.
