According to Nan Bowman Albinski's Australian Literary Manuscripts in North American Libraries: A Guide (National Library Australia, 1997), numerous documents regarding Barry's work are held in the A.P. Watt and Son Collection at the University of North Carolina: mostly letters, with some publishing agreements. The letters largely involve Barry's publications in English and North American publications, and are mostly written by A.P. Watt.
