The collection also includes two letters to his nephew Edwin Warren Moïse from the Metropolitan Museum of Art offering advice on care of a portrait of his grandfather, Edwin Warren Moïse, painted by Theodore Sidney Moïse, as well as a series of photographs of Warren Hubert Moïse and friends originally enclosed in a letter to Edwin Warren Moïse. Part of the Jewish Heritage Collection, The Warren Hubert Moïse Letters were donated to the College of Charleston's Addlestone Library by Marion Gerdine Moïse Bierwirth in 2009.
