Description William Faulkner's choice of a repository for the major manuscripts and personal papers in his possession at the time of his death was the University of Virginia. His stated wish was implemented by the creation of the William Faulkner Foundation to which he arranged to bequeath his papers. They were ultimately transferred to the University under the guiding hand of Faulkner's friend, Linton R. Massey, donor of the Alderman Library's vast collection of Faulkner first editions, translations and all publications touching on the writer's life and work.
