The collection holds a set of subject files primarily reflecting banking interests along with manuscripts of writings and talks by him and other bankers and economists. There are a few folders of personal information, clippings, awards, and a scrapbook kept by his wife, circa 1920-1938, containing clippings, photographs, programs, and telegrams.
