The correspondence included with this collection indicates that Varin initially shared his poetry with Furman’s Gilbert Allen in 2002, and again in 2013. Since Varin had been living in South Carolina since 1962, Allen suggested his poetry be included in Furman’s South Carolina Poetry Archives. As the manuscript’s title suggests, Varin’s poetry is written about his world travels. The 2015 version of his manuscript is an illustrated version. The short article from the Swiss American Historical Society Review is about his collection at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, Roger R. Varin school Papers, 1932-1945.
