- Although this collection includes only a small portion of Faber du Faur's papers, it nonetheless contains some interesting personal items, such as a draft of an unpublished novel, ₋Schloss Rattenberg₋, and a few poems. Some German correspondence relates to the production of his dramatic poems in the 1930s. Other curiosities are Faber du Faur's U.S. immigrant card from 1939, his doctoral diploma from 1927, and his wife's divorce apapers (from her first husband). The rest of the collection consists mostly of Faber du Faur's published articles on German literature. There are also several photographs of him and copies of his obituary.
