This series consists almost entirely of letters to and from Janis P. Stout, primarily requests for permission to quote from correspondence cited in Katherine Anne Porter: A Sense of the Times (1995) and replies to the requests. There are individual files for persons (Isabel Bayley, Joan Givner, Paul Porter, etc.) and institutions (Houston Chronicle, Library of Congress). For some of the correspondents, the name of the author whose work is the subject of the request appears in parentheses. There is also a file containing Stout's list of addresses from her permissions process. The series is arranged alphabetically.
