Do any you poetry scholars know who is C and Dr. P referring to the sections written as letters, especially in Book II?


Keith According to Christopher MacGowan's notes to Paterson, Dr. P is Williams himself, and C is Marcia Nardi, an aspiring poet who sent Williams the letters used in Paterson (though they have been edited from the originals). The MacGowan edition provides most of the source Williams used in Paterson, if you are interested.
