When Robert Hartman died in 1973, he left behind approximately 100,000 typed pages of lecture notes, finished but unpublished manuscripts, unfinished manuscripts, essays, and correspondence.

His widow, Rita, donated them to the Hoskins Special Collections Library at the University of Tennessee in Knoxville. They are in dozens and dozens of cardboard filing boxes, in file folders, and are carbon copy documents on fragile yellow or onion skin paper.

If you wish to do further research into formal axiology, you can access his work which is available to any serious researcher who wishes to peruse them. Note that these documents are stored off-site and at least one day's notice will is required to have access to them.
