The series title represents "Personal Unprocessed" and was designed as such by staff at the South Caroliniana Library as part of their system of classifying collections. Apparently this part of the Tillman Papers was processed at a later date than the Incoming and Outgoing series. There is some evidence that these papers may have been gathered by John Walker McCain, a professor of English at Winthrop College and then given to the Caroliniana Library.

As a Democrat and populist, he opposed the Peace of Paris, the Philippine War, and the monetary policies of the Republican administrations of McKinley, Roosevelt, and Taft.
