The most significant portion of Washington University's Ford Madox Ford Papers is the carbon typescript of A Little Less Than Gods (1928), Ford's novel of romance and adventure set in the Napoleonic Wars. This manuscript contains numerous revisions and corrections by him. The collection also contains several letters from Ford, primarily to Alfred H. Mendes, whose book Ford was helping to get published, as well as an autograph draft of the poem The Old Faith by Ford and several drafts and galleys of work from The Transatlantic Review with corrections by Ford. Also included are a large group of photocopies of scarce columns written by Ford for The Outlook between 1913-1915.
