The collection consists of the papers of Marguerite Couturier Steedman from 1912-1978 including correspondence, clippings, photographs, reprints of essays by Steedman, and proofs of her novel Refuge in Avalon. Correspondence is primarily of a personal nature and contains letters from friends and family such as Anderson M. Scruggs and Steedman's father. Many of the letters from the early 1940s describe World War II in England and the Pacific theater. Clippings are primarily of Steedman's columns. Most photographs are unidentified, but there are two photographs of Steedman as a child with her parents.
