Also included are legal and financial papers, sermons by Jedidiah and Richard Cary Morse, travel journals, newspaper clippings, scrapbooks, printed matter, and photographs.
The papers of Ray Palmer (1808-1887) and his son Charles Ray Palmer (1834-1914), both clergymen. The Ray Palmer papers consist of correspondence, two letterbooks, sermons, hymns and poems, diaries, a memoir, and other materials. The letterbooks contain correspondence from ministers and a few public officials. In the Charles Ray Palmer papers are essays, poems, notes on lectures given at Andover Theological Seminary by Edwards A. Park, sermons, writings and miscellaneous papers.
The papers consist of personal diaries written by Pearson from 1931-1954. They cover his last year at Cass Technical High School in Detroit, his attendance at Hopkins Grammar School, his years at Yale University, his World War II alternative service, and his graduate school career at Columbia University.
The papers consist of a typed transcript of a diary kept by Hannah Maria Catlin Phelps between 1849 and 1859. She was the daughter of Julius Catlin, lieutenant governor of Connecticut, 1858-1861. It depicts the social life of a young woman in Hartford, Connecticut, and her visits to New York, Washington, D.C., and Niagara Falls. The last two years of the diary include accounts of her wedding and the birth of her daughter in October, 1858.
Three women, two of the nineteenth century, are represented in the Pierson family papers. There are two notebooks kept by two sisters: Margaret H. Pierson, with notes on her reading at Vassar College, and Louise R. Pierson with a notebook on a sewing course at the Pratt Institute. Also a diary (1926) on a trip to Europe kept by Laura Pierson, probably a cousin.

The papers consist of the journals of William C. Robinson and his wife, Anna E. H. Robinson. Each volume records the daily thoughts and activities of the individuals while they lived and worked in New Haven, Connecticut. Both William and Anna Robinson were deeply religious and there is evidence of this throughout the journals.
