Holloway's work brought to light an enormous amount of Whitman's hitherto little known writings. He identified a number of the "Sun-down Papers" which appeared in the Hempstead Inquirer and the Long Island Democrat in 1840 and 1841. He also reprinted a number of Whitman's early poems which had appeared in the 1840's.
