Much of the material on the latter subject appears to relate to Tuttle's "Dravidian Developments" (1930).

Also contained in the collection are financial and legal papers. Monthly accounts have been entered in several of the notebooks.

These papers were donated to Yale University by Edwin H. Tuttle in 1939, along with a gift of over three hundred books.
