The Clifton Waller Barrett Library, part of the Special Collections Department at the University of Virginia, takes as its province one hundred and seventy-five years of American literature, the years from 1775 to 1950.  Among the authors represented in the Barrett Library is Eugene O'Neill.  The letters from O'Neill to his second wife, Agnes Boulton O'Neill, to his son Shane, and to Harold de Polo are intimate and revealing.  There is also a typescript of an early unpublished O'Neill short story.
