The series consists of professional and personal papers including work on projects such as Massachusetts Poetry in the Schools and the Fine Arts Work Center in Provincetown as well as financial records, awards and resumes, degrees, military records, and memorials. Dugan's records regarding Massachusetts Poetry in the Schools, 1971-1974, consists primarily of student work ranging from elementary through high school, but also includes reports both by Dugan and by members of the administration of the program as well as personal notes on the program. Dugan's work with the Fine Arts Work Center in Provincetown documents his work as a board member of the organization, including administrative records on the building, board of trustee minutes, and notes on changes to the constitution and by-laws. Also included are applications and notes documenting his work in choosing fellowship applicants for the writing program.

Along with his work in these programs, the series contains financial records from 1949-2002. The financial records include handwritten notes sent to the Dugans' accountant as well as contracts for Alan's readings and publishing work, Judith's art exhibit in Paris in 1963, federal and local tax returns, and records for Marcards, the Dugan's failed greeting card business. Also included in financial records are documents regarding Alan's grant for the American Academy of Arts and Letters in Rome in 1962 as well as remittances, royalty payments, honorariums, vouchers, and notifications of payment from Yale University Press, Connecticut College for Women, New York University, University of Colorado, Postal Transportation Services, Port of New York Authority among others. Included with financial records are contracts for speaking engagements as well as for teaching positions at organizations including University of Texas at Austin, University of Arkansas, and Castle Hill Center for the Arts, Southern Illinois University at Carbondale, Dia Center and Provincetown Art Press.

The series also includes personal papers such as degrees and educational awards that Dugan earned in high school, resumes and grant applications, memorials, military records and personal papers both for Alan and Judith as well as Alan's parents, Elmer and Mae Dugan. These personal papers include identification cards, passports, wills, cemetery plot information, and town registrations.
