The collection includes both original documents going back to the 18th century as well as documentation of several efforts to trace the family histories. Materials include scrapbooks, photographs, clippings, correspondence, reminiscences, genealogical charts and notes, programs, books and pamphlets, floorplans, recipe and commonplace books, diaries, and other items. There are extensive notes by Helen Van Uxem Cubberley's connected with her books about the Newbold family and its mansion, Bloomsdale, as well as Newbold family typescripts by Francis Van Uxem. There is a diary that Sarah M. Cooper started in 1856 and continued in 1885, a travel diary by Rebecca Newbold Wysong from transatlantic voyages in 1926, and two books by Arthur E. Morgan, who served as president of Antioch College and then first president of the Tennessee Valley Authority. Caroline Hazard was president of Wellesley College.
