Correspondence contains letters to and by John Slocum, Herbert Cahoon, and R.F. Roberts in the preparation of A Bibliography of James Joyce. The letters are arranged alphabetically by the last name of the person corresponding with these three men. The last name of Slocum, Cahoon or Roberts is also given. Dates are given by year only, and the number of letters includes both letters by and letters to Slocum, Cahoon or Roberts. (e. g., "Abbott, Berenice 1947 1 Slocum" indicates that one letter passed between Berenice Abbott and Slocum in 1947.) Exhibition material (Box 30) includes correspondence about, and lists and photographs of exhibitions in which Slocum Collection material appeared. The Paris exhibition material is in Folder 1. Other exhibitions are arranged alphabetically by sponsoring body. Box 30 also contains bylaws, speeches, and correspondence (correspondence arranged as in Boxes 1-9) in that order. The Pubication Material in Box 34 contains correspondence, contracts, typescripts, and proofs, in that order.
