The collection is comprised of material formerly classed as: Uncat ZA MS 386, Uncat ZA MS 624, Uncat MSS 133, and Uncat ZA File 417. Various acquisitions associated with the collection have not been merged and organized as a whole. Each acquisition is described separately in the contents list below, according to month and year of acquisition.
A content list in the April 1994 Acquisition states that The Pennsylvania, 1928-1929, Rachel Carson's personalized yearbook from Pennsylvania College for Women will be sent separately, but is not found among the papers.
Information included in the Description of Papers note and Collection Contents section is drawn from information supplied with the collection and from an initial survey of the contents.
